Nice change of characters make this show entertaining.
25 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Micah is carrying an outlaw, Bletch Droshek, in for trial. While stopped on the trail, Bletch jumps Micah and starts beating him up. After a few punches Micah goes down and the outlaw rides off. A badly injured Micah is able to make it to Lucas's farm and deputizes Lucas so that he can ride to a neighboring town to find the outlaw.

When Lucas makes it to the town the entire town seems to be hiding information from Lucas. When he finds the Marshal of the town things only get worse. The town does not give up its own.

Claude Akins and Peter Whitney do a great job of playing Russian immigrants that settled in the New Mexico mountains making for a nice change of characters for the series. The episode held tight to the regular 'Rifleman' plot so there are really no surprises in the show. This is just a usual good episode that has all the good qualities that make the series entertaining.
