This episode begins with three men Willy Scroggs, Harve Foster and George Hewitt drinking in the Long Branch. When the three men are about to go home you can tell that something in their life is uncomfortable. But each assures the other that things are fine as they split up. That is when Willy Scroggs is stabbed and scalped appearing to be the work of Indians.
The townsfolk now start an uproar about Indians. They even want to get a posse together and head for the Indian Nation to revenge the death. And the only clue that Marshal Dillon has is that Quint saw Caleb Nash, an old mountain man that stays in the Indian nation, along the same road that evening.
It will not be long before George Hewitt is killed and Matt learns from his wife that George, Harve and Willie had went hunting two weeks ago. Matt will ride down to the Indian Nations with Caleb to find Chief Buffalo Calf. There is where Matt will finally get the real story about why someone is killing in Dodge. Plus Matt will reveal the killer and the reasons for the murders. But will it be enough to stop the outrage in Dodge.
There is a lot going on in this episode and this review only scratches the main plot. So be prepared for many other sub-plots and stories connected to this program. It was not the most entertaining show but one that will leave you with a powerful message at the end. Good watch.
