The elderly couple Tucker and Sophie McCallum have raised two kids Tabby and her brother Bruce in a very strict household under Tucker. Tabby has a fascination with killing animals since she was a small child and Bruce has developed an eye for eye mentality in protecting the family. When Tabby is accidentally shot by Sam Hicks leading to her eventual death when she is seen running from a barn fire she set at Shiloh, Tucker and especially Bruce vow revenge. Tucker blames Dan Flood who was with her at Shiloh as well for her death since he and Tabby had a close relationship and Dan wanted to marry her. Complicating the situation is the belief by many in the community that Dan has bad blood as his father was lynched but the sheriff and The Virginian both fight the idea. Interestingly Tabby and Bruce's ailing mother tells Tucker she has born him two evil children. When Sam is shot the Sheriff has to determine who killed him. Written by Anonymous
