Morgan Woodward returns to Dodge after fifteen years in prison
Josh Stryker (Morgan Woodward) is being released after serving fifteen years in prison and is heading to Dodge to see his daughter. But there is more to this man that just being considered a free man, he use to be the Marshal of Dodge. But he was convicted of killing an unarmed murder suspect in cold-blood. The person that gave the most damaging evidence was his deputy Matt Dillon.
Stryker's fifteen years in prison which also included the lost of one of his arms has not cooled the hot-head. He blames Matt for all of his woes and he is planning a way to get even.
His daughter, Sarah Jean (Joan Van Ark), had her husband leave her and she had to get a job at the Long Branch. Her life has been going rather well and she is glad to see her father's release from jail. But it will not last long.
When two of Stryker's cell mates, Jessup and Reager, show up at Sarah Jean's house wanting money things go bad. At first Stryker pays them the money wanted and they agree to take care of Matt. But when things go wrong one of them is back wanting money anyway he can get it even if it means harming Sarah Jean.
There are some good scenes in this episode and also some scenes that appeared to just stretch out the time. The concept of the plot was outstanding but it seemed like the writer added too much filler and not enough substance to the story. Don't get me wrong, the episode is indeed a nice watch but there was just so much more that could have been done to produce a more entertaining show. But it did hold the interest long enough to produce a nice show.
