Murder?
11 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We get to see a bit of Hoby's personal life in this episode when he travels back to Crawford, his hometown. We also learn he has an old girlfriend named Merilee. His sister's name is Norah, and his nephew's name is Tommy. Apparently Norah is a widow...

So at the very end of this episode, we see Hoby forced into a show-down with his old girlfriend who had turned bitter because Hoby had killed her outlaw husband a couple months before. His intervention the night before made it difficult for her to shoot Hoby, but it was obvious she wanted him to kill her. The sheriff runs out with his rifle and shoots Merilee in the back...

Was it murder? It could have been. This was an excellent episode. It shows Hoby's past, that he has actually loved before, and shows the harshness of reality. That's one thing about these old black and white westerns - they aren't sugar coated at the end. Sometimes the story isn't "Happily ever after."
