Marshal Dillon meets an Hispanic badman who forces Dillon into a gunfight. Almost immediately, Matt encounters an old friend, retired lawman Jack Pinto, who accompanies the Marshal to Dodge. Upon his return to town, Matt is told by Festus that four hired guns are waiting to kill the marshal. One by one, the gunmen die while trying to collect a $25,000 bounty on Dillon--yet incidents prove that the bounty is still in force. Who has offered the bounty, and who still plans to collect?

An unknown person is giving $25,000 to kill Marshal Dillon.
17 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Matt's on his way back from Hay City when this Mexican gunslinger named Miguel Samando meets him on the road. He tells Matt that he has to kill him. But Matt is faster than the Mexican and kills him. While searching the body Matt finds a wag of money. About that time a man comes riding up and it just so happens to be an old lawman named Jack Pinto. Jack's has quit the law and is on his way to California to make a new start. He helps Matt take the body with him into Dodge.

Meanwhile in Dodge, Festus has seen these three men come into Dodge at different times. He thinks they maybe gunslingers so he goes to the Long Branch where they are drinking and gets friendly with one of the gunslingers. Festus finds out that the men are in town to kill Marshal Dillon and collect $25,000 but he cannot find out who is paying that much money.

One of the gunslingers named Billy Cole decides to take on Matt when he enters the town. Billy new home is in boot-hill. Two down, two to go.

So that leaves Doyle Phleger and Al Tresh trying to get $25,000 for killing Matt Dillon in a fair fight. But we the viewer will get knowledge that everyone is not who they seem to be. Will Matt recognize this fact before it is too late.

An interesting story with a fine cast. This episode has a twist that makes the viewer stay focused on the events on screen. Much better show than expected.
