Storyline

Sam was alone in Santa Fe. The Marshal and all his deputies were out of town. I'm not sure which job was hardest - guarding his prisoner locked up in the jail or fighting with the entire town who was in an uproar, thanks to the loud mouth of Col. Efram Springer. The man that Sam was holding in jail was accused of murder, and many seemed to think his gang was coming to get him. The men were afraid the gang would come in and start shooting. But the real trouble started when the "marshal" arrived. At least, he claimed to be a Marshal. As Sam talked to him and watched his reactions, Sam got a feeling that he wasn't really a marshal. Sam refused to release his prisoner to the "marshal" until He got permission from Marshal Morrison. Sam tried his best to explain that he was just a deputy and had no authority to release him. They just wanted Remmick gone. They didn't want to wait. Written by Michelle

...this would have been even better had they not shown the real Marshal shot in the opening scene. We could have wondered right along with Sam on rather the man was the marshal or not, but unfortunately we were robbed of the adventure. I think this is one of the episodes I would say, cut out the first scene. It wasn't really necessary was it? I mean, we could have still understood the entire story without that scene and it would have been a lot more interesting...

Okay, so this man...Mr. Watkins, I'm assuming dropped dead of a heart attack in the Marshal's office. It never really showed this. We see him walk back inside, and we see him crash to the floor (I'm assuming dead). Then Sam rushes back into town and announces who the "marshal" really is and that he isn't the marshal. The question of this 'old man' is dropped and we are left hanging on rather he died or not...I guess we'll never know!
