One of the most unusual episode of the whole series

I comment only the part two of this episode. This tales focuses mostly on a supporting character - who actually becomes the lead - if you compare to the usual ones - Hondo, the SWAT leader, played by Robert Urich. The supporting character - Stuart Whitman - plays here an ex undercover cop who testified against a crime lord, sent him to jail, and then becomes a target for the remaining leads of the criminal organization. A runaway witness tale, in resume. And, I repeat, focusing on Stuart Whitman mostly. And you have Forrest Tucker in this episode, in a local town crime lord character, the town where Whitman runs for hiding...

Very good tale, rather well and sharply played. Even if everything remains very classical and somewhere predictable.
