This episode begins with Micah at the deathbed of aged Sara Caruthers who still holds a grudge against Lucas McCain for killing her robbing husband. When she dies she has written a will that reads that the people of the town of North Fork will inherit money if Lucas McCain dies within seven days. Since most people thought she has nothing of value, it surprises people when they find out that she had a bank box with $100,000 inside. Plus she has a letter that is to be given to the person that kills Lucas. So now people are interested into what is inside the letter.

When a known gunman, Stacey Beldon, comes to town the belief is that someone in town has hired the gunman to kill Lucas. Lucas has suspicions but all will be explained when a note is found detailing the situation.

This was an interesting plot that was sure to entertain. The problem was that within the 30 minute format it was difficult to explore all the characters and their motives. As seems to be the case in a number of 'Rifleman' episodes, this is a good story but was rushed. But even with that said, it was another fine watch.
