After the burial the crippled Asa suffers a heart attack. Asa is dying and asks The Virginian to see if his daughter who was stolen by Indians when she was ten will return home. He had found her eight years after her capture but she decided to stay with the Shoshone at that time. Asa wants to give her his farm as his only other child is an outlaw. The daughter, Sarah, agrees to return with her son as her Shoshone husband is dead. Sarah's other brother Dobie upon hearing that Dick was killed comes to avenge his brother's death. Complicating the situation for The Virginian a couple of men in town want the property due to silver ore on it. Asa has died splitting the property between Sarah and The Virginian.
