This episode begins with two riders, former Confederate Major Aaron king and Corporal Troc, riding into North Fork when they see Lucas McCain at the general store. The two Confederate soldiers recognize Lucas as the Union Lieutenant that captured their unit during the Civil War. The Major's unit was taken to a notorious Union prison where prisoners were mistreated. Their capture lasted for over two years and during that time the entire unit of the Major King died and has taken a toll of the mental health of both Confederate officers.

Since Lucas was the one that captured the unit, Major King wants Lucas to experience the same treatment that were given his men. So they kidnap Lucas and take him out to the country side and place him in a small wooden cage to experience the same claustrophobic condition that has ruined their mental condition.

After viewing this episode it is hard to find any fault with the show. it was an interesting story that was well played. Character actor, John Dehner, was excellent playing the part of the mentally ill Confederate Major that had suffered from abuse. A enjoyable episode that worthy of a watch.
