This episode reveals information about the back story of Laramie banker and semi regular character Oren Slauson (actor Vinton Hayworth). Twenty five years earlier, when Slauson was in his youth, he embezzled funds and was jailed for two years. Now in middle age, a banker and also a town councilman, Slauson is naturally anxious that the information about his prior life remain a secret. This episode also again recounts the stories from earlier in season two about Marshal Dan Troop's late outlaw brother, Clay, and of Birdcage proprietor Lily Merrill being run out of her previous saloon in Billings, Montana because of a crooked card dealer.
