Storyline

On the way to a cattle purchase, The Virginian meets up with Ben Hunter and his group when they interrupt a holdup attempt on him. He finds that Hunter is leading a protection racket that now covers a number of towns on the way between Medicine Bow and Billings, and that the people in these towns are cowed into paying him outrageous fees to keep their homes and businesses safe. When The Virginian is forced to kill one of Hunter's men the citizens of one town are ordered to turn him over to be killed, and except for the daughter of one man are too willing to do so.

The Virginian and a ranch hand are in a saloon when Ramrod tells the ranch hand it's time to go but, after the Virginian has left, there is a fight over a local woman.

The next morning the Virginian finds out the ranch hand is incapacitated from the fight, as he is hobbling around in broken slippers not his boots, so he rides off without the ranch hand.

The Virginian is later drinking from a pool when he is set upon by a would-be robber but who loses in a fight with the Virginian.

Ben Hunter arrives with a posse to tell the Viginian's attacker to move on, without the mare he took from Ben, and then tells the Virginian to go with them to his home where he gloats over his local status.
