Morgan Earp is on his way to Dodge City to visit his brother Wyatt when the stage is held up. When the mask on one of the bandits slips down, Morgan recognizes him as Smiley Dunlap who is a friend of Doc Holliday. At Dodge City Morgan heads to see Doc first to tell him about Smiley. Doc asks Morgan to keep the fact from Wyatt to which Morgan agrees. Doc quizzes a couple of men who promise to help find Smiley. When the two men are gunned down in the street, Doc decides to take Morgan with him to find Smiley who he believes to be in trouble with the Greg Norton gang. Kate Holliday overhears Doc and Morgan talking and relays the story to Wyatt. Wyatt takes a posse to track Doc and Morgan. Doc ultimately learns Smiley and his wife are with the Norton gang. Smiley has crossed Norton so he wants revenge. Wyatt and his group catch up with everyone only to find Doc and Morgan prisoners along with Smiley and his wife. Wyatt must free them but he doesn't want Morgan to know he was involved. Written by Anonymous
