In a rather macabre episode for a Zane Grey show, we have the West family that is headed by an older gentleman named Malachi and his daughter-in-law, Irene, and her retarded son, Paul. Malachi's son died in the Civil War and he still has bad blood for the person that killed him. it just so happens that the man that killed his son, Sam Brady, is coming to town to open a detective agency. Malachi and Irene will now get their chance for revenge.
This is a strange episode that never really clicked. The concept of the story seemed like a nice plot but never gain any interest and ended in a manner that was lackluster. Raymond Massey, that played Malachi, always gives a nice performance in any production but in this show the story did not do justice to the actor. Cara Williams, that played Irene, was as beautiful as ever but her character was so bizarre that her performance never flowed. By the time the ending was approaching, it seemed that the story did a 180* turn and headed in a different direction. This was a story that never seemed to have a proper ending and fell flat.
