A hired gunman arrives to take care of some business.
3 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is one of those episodes where the story is so interesting that time flew by and before you knew it, the show was over. But when you have fine actors and a entertaining script then it is easy to see why this series is one of the better westerns on TV.

In this episode a local hard nose rancher, Oat Jackford (Bert Freed), happens to be the most disliked man in the city of North Fork. When he roughs up Asa Manning for owing him money, Asa is going to make sure that he takes care of Jackford. Asa hires a former bounty hunter Tom King (John Dehner) to kill Jackford and rid the town of the rancher.

Tom King's reputation is well known and Micah and Lucas try to talk the gunman into leaving town. But the money has already been paid and now everyone is set for a gunfight that is to take place on the outskirts of town.

A well written and well performed show. This program was so tightly done that it felt like the episode had just began when the closing credits hit the screen. Another enjoyable offering.
