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
Did You Know?
Yeah, you tried to warn me that Hackett's comin' through this valley. Well, now why should I care? I'm a cattleman! And I'm gonna do just like those ancient Hebrews in Egypt. Gonna take the blood of a lamb and put it over my door, so the angel of death is gonna pass me right by.
