The driver is killed during the robbery of a Wells Fargo shipment by Blackie Saunders who also threatened a woman and boy if they identify him. A Wells Fargo representative comes to Earp to ask him to go undercover into Brown's Hole which is a known outlaw hangout. Mayor Kelley says they can't afford to lose Earp but Earp decides to go anyway. He allows himself to be taken captive by the outlaws telling them he is Tim Hardwick wanted for the crime Blackie committed with a wanted poster to back up his story. The outlaws find it but warn him to leave as they don't want a conflict there between him and Blackie who they assume he wants to take to clear his name. Earp decides to visit Shotgun Gibbs who has a place near the outlaw hangout but brokers no visitors of any kind as he is a loner. He challenges Earp to fight first with fists and then guns but finds Earp too much for him in both cases. He despises what Blackie did so he agrees to help Earp by letting him stay. When Blackie returns... Written by Anonymous
