A moving episode that was well written and performed
A powerful episode that really makes the viewer feel for the characters. This is a story that can actually move a person and much of the feeling has to do with the way the lines are delivered. A small but great cast made this episode one of the more potent shows in a long time.
Jezra Cobb is a brute of a man that hides behind his own interpretation of the Bible to think he is better than everyone else in the area of Dodge. When Jezbra and his wife Minerva ride into town someone takes a shot at him from the shadows of an alley. Jezra is upset a Marshal Dillon for running a town full of sinners and demands the Marshal find out who would want him dead, for he has no enemies in Dodge.
It is not long before a stranger, Puggy Rado, gets drunk and begins running his mouth. He claims that he was given $300 to kill Jezra. It is only when Jezra sees Puggy that he knows who placed a contract on his life.
The rest of the story needs to be watched. A powerful message comes off the screen and into homes while setting in the comfort of the viewer's home. I would not call the ending shocking but rather sad. An uncomfortable story that was told very well by the writer. With the script and fine acting, this is one of the better performed shows we have seen this season.
