The Lone Ranger is concerned when a man is released from jail and tells his wife he's going to kill the two men who put him there. He's scheduled to arrive any day now, so the Lone Ranger sends Tonto into town to get the juicy details on what he plans.

It's an interesting twist when the two men Ames what's to kill has already been attacked - or so it seems. There are a few twists and turns along the way that keep you guessing. I figured out part of it, but not all...

These are classics with simple plots and simple solutions. The Lone Ranger doesn't have much killing in it - making it a good show for kids. I love that they always end it with the men saying he's The Lone Ranger, and The Lone Ranger yelling, "Hi ho silver, away!" In a few years, television westerns will no longer hold a signature like this. Oh, The Rifleman has his rifle and Matt Dillon has his "Get out of Dodge." Even Rawhide has "Head 'em up, and move 'em out!" But there's just something special about The Lone Ranger's signature...
