The episode begins with Farley Weaver(Dabbs Greer) arriving in North Fork and looking for a job. The thing about Weaver is that he has just been released from the territorial jail after serving time for manslaughter. And as we all know that Lucas is a fair man, he agrees to hire Weaver to help him make repairs on his fence.

When Lucas sends Weaver into town for more wire, the clerk at the store has sold out. But he did tell Weaver that a man outside town may have some for him. Weaver rides out to the Manse farm house only to find that Mr Manse had been murdered. He rushes back and telling Lucas of the event and knows that people are going to accuse him of the crime. And sure enough, Mr Manse mentally slow son, Eli, tells the Marshal that he saw Weaver kill his Pa. But there is more to this interesting story.

There is nothing that really stands out in this episode but the subject matter was indeed interesting. Even though the viewer was well aware of the events, it still did not take away from watching and getting interested in this story. And when a show makes the viewer want to watch, the task has been accomplished. Good watch.
