Storyline

Stablehand Colly Vane, while out hunting, gets the drop on notorious wanted gunfighter The Domino Kid, and is forced to shoot him. When Colly brings the Kid's body into town to claim the reward, it's noticed that the Kid had been shot in the back. Instead of being hailed as a hero, Colly becomes the object of the townspeoples' derision for having shot the Kid in the back, is fired from his job and evicted from his house. To make matters worse, three gunfighters who were the Kid's friends come to town looking for him, and when they find out he's dead, set out to find and kill the man who did it.

The town is upset when an outlaw is shot in the back.
8 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A ranch-hand named Colly Vane (Robert Culp) stumbles up on a camp fire and notices that the man at the fire is a notorious outlaw 'The Domino Kid' that has a price on his head. Colly is able to shoot the outlaw before he can reach for his gun and takes the body into North Fork for the reward.

When he takes the body to the Marshal's office the townsfolk turn on Colly when they notice the outlaw was shot in the back. Colly loses his job and is thrown out of his rented apartment. Things get worse when three friends of 'The Domino kid' ride into town to revenge the outlaws death. With the three men looking for Colly, Lucas seems to be the only friend that Colly has left.

This episode is unique that it features Mark on two occasions talks back to Lucas. At one point Lucas is so upset that he sends Mark to bed without supper. The episode seemed quick with the thirty minute format but was enjoyable enough to produce a fine show. Good watch.
