Storyline

Mark McQueen, Timmo's son who was raised by the boy's grandparents, is coming to visit. Unknown to Timmo, Mark had a hard life growing up and resents his father for seemingly abandoning him. Mark takes it in stride when he is told Timmo is not a rancher as Timmo wrote him. Troop recognizes that Mark has a big chip on his shoulder. Mark is carrying padlocked saddle bags adding to Troop's suspicions. That night after drinking Mark starts trouble at the Birdcage and Johnny quickly brings him down to earth in a street fight. At the end two men arrive Mark knows. He decides to ask Troop to hold the saddle bags which he says contain ore samples. Later the two men take Mark and Timmo hostage and force Troop to hand over the bags. Mark and Timmo force a scuffle allowing Troop and Johnny to take the men. Mark explains the bags contain money a dead friend and the two men stole from a bank. Written by Anonymous
