A violent outlaw (Jingo) shows up at the fort. Pierre Falcon recognizes him immediately to be his former partner Jingo, who he thought was dead. Falcon reminisces about being partners with Jingo along with two Indian brothers. The four worked well together, and were close friends until they were attacked by Indians - Jingo abandoned the fight, and Falcon was the only survivor. Falcon is determined to kill Jingo, but Banner intervenes, helping Falcon cool down. The outlaw at the fort claims that he has never met Falcon, but Falcon insists that the real Jingo would have a scar on his wrist. They confront the outlaw, and he does have the tell-tale scar, and attacks Falcon. Falcon is incapacitated, at which point Banner steps in and corners Jingo. Falcon wakes up, but chooses not to kill Jingo, because murdering him would only make him as bad as Jingo. Written by
