Storyline

Luke Nichols hitching a ride with the Widow McCloud arrives at Shiloh searching for Trampas. He and Trampas were cell mates in prison when Trampas was sentenced to hang for a murder. They escaped prison together with plans to go to Canada. Trampas turned himself in and was cleared of the murder while Luke went to Canada where he waited for Trampas to join him. Spotted in Canada Luke has been tracked by Bracken, a bounty hunter, tracing him to Trampas. Luke soon realizes Trampas is content with his life at Shiloh so he decides to leave. Trampas tracks Luke down but realizes he can't stay at Shiloh. He decides to hide Luke with the cold natured Widow McCloud who lives alone. Bracken finds him and blackmails Trampas for Luke's freedom asking for $1000. The Virginian tells Trampas it won't work but Trampas tries to raise the money by selling his rifle and saddle and using the proceeds to play poker. In the end he decides instead to hire a lawyer but will Luke go along. Written by Anonymous
