This is the second episode we see about the Wales family. They are a
mean bunch. Pa Wales is mean and possessive but honest in a sick sort
of way. Billy Dan pretty much takes after his Pa, but he's a lot more
sensitive. He's too honest and too caring to really let his meanness
cause a lot of hurt to another. Dalton, though, is the evilest of them
all, and he's the one that causes a lot of the trouble.
In this episode, Clayt accidentally grazes Lorna Wales, the mute
daughter, while hunting for a bear. Her Pa and brothers are very angry.
He plans to hang Clayt in the morning unless he finds proof that Clayt
was shooting at a bear.
This is another one of my favorite episodes. The ending of this episode
is really emotional for the Wales family. Saying that, I must say that
I have a lot of respect for Billy Dan. He's a brave boy to stand up to
his tyrant of a father the way he does. Billy Dan has a love for his
father and a respect for fellow man - even those he claims to dislike.
The writer's did a really good job putting this family together.
