Hank Clay has recently moved to North Fork with his wife Nancy and his stepson Simon Lee. He's something of a drunk and seems to go out of his way to pick fights that always seem to end with Simon defending him. Simon is a very fast shot and has gunned down many men who insulted his step dad. His next 'victim' however is Lucas McCain who, no matter how he tries to avoid Clay, ends up in a fight. When Simon calls him out however, he is genuinely shocked as the young man is the spitting image of a Confederate officer he killed during the Civil War. It's a death that has haunted Lucas ever since. Written by
