Storyline

An invasion is happening, and it's happening by Major Hackett and his hired guns to any rancher or homesteader who is not a member of the Cattleman's Beleavent. An article in the paper only mentions one name, Longhorn Jenny who obtains her cattle to sell by questionable methods. She is branded a rustler. That's only the beginning of Hackett's invasion, however. Shane is concerned for the homesteaders, and yes, even Ryker, who live in the valley and tries to warn them to join together to fight Hackett, because he WILL come. Everyone laughs in his face, however, and refuse to leave. Even Marion refuses to leave. When Shane has a talk with Joey, he realizes there is only one thing left to do. He may never see Marion again. Written by Michelle

That's the only way to describe this two-part episode and the major who is heading this revolution. There were a lot of cattle ranchers, and there were a lot who refused to be part of the cattleman's association. It was these ranchers this deranged major was against. He started out with a pretty innocent woman who was known for her shady dealings with cattle buying. We don't know for sure that she actually rustled, but she did admit to not being on the up-in-up. There is a strange number of circumstances that occur and cause her death.

It appears that Shane then decides to go on the other side, and Marian is unsurprisingly shocked that he did such an awful thing to her. Of course, the results are okay but not before a lot of people turn against Shane and believe the worst of him...
