Introduction of Micah Torrance
7 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode begins as the Sheltin brothers along with another rider named Lloyd Carpenter enter North Fork looking for Micah Torrence. Long ago Micah was a famous lawman and went against the Sheltin family. Now the brothers are looking to take their revenge against the former Marshal.

But time has not been good for Micah. He lost use of his shooting arm and quit law-enforcement. Now days Micah is a drunk that rambles from town to town until his welcome is worn. But when Lucas comes across Micah, he offers him a job at the ranch. And with the Sheltin brothers out to kill Micah, Lucas is going to have to teach Micah that he has to stand up for himself instead of giving up.

An enjoyable episode that introduces the new Marshal to the North Fork family. It is always nice to see where the main character of a series originated. This episode gives us a starting point for the Marshal that will continue throughout the series run. Nice watch.
