Storyline

A somewhat eccentric woman Mrs. Loretta Carreway and her son Habcock arrive on the stage and she no sooner steps off the stage that she screams out and faints. The cause of her shock is none other than seeing the husband who abandoned her 16 years before - Marshal Micah Torrance who she claims is really Norman Carreway. Micah denies it all, though he admits to Lucas that he drank heavily in those days and his memory has dimmed as a result. It all goes from bad to worst when a new wanted poster arrives with a photo on it of someone who is the spitting image of Micah. It's left to Lucas to sort it out. Written by garykmcd

An enjoyable episode.
13 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This odd little episode begins when the stage arrives in North Fork and has two occupants. A middle age woman named Leota Carreway and her skinny son named Habcock. But what really sets these people apart from others is when she claims that Micah is her husband and the father of her son. She claims that Micah married her back in Texas and went by the name of Norman Carreway and also charming Billy. With Micah being drunk most of his early life he is not sure if he is the husband/father or not- but he does seem to like having someone that cares for him.

When Lucas eyes a new wanted poster that has arrived at the Marshal's office, the situation becomes clearer. Lucas sets off to a nearby town to see if he can find the man on the wanted poster.

This was an enjoyable episode. Paul Fix has some funny lines in this show and Lucas had some funny looks. This show is somewhat different from the normal situations that arrive in North Fork but was still entertaining. It was an episode that will be remembered long after viewing. Good show.
