Gerald Gray is released from prison after serving five years for armed robbery. He returns to the small farming community of Sycamore, where his well-meaning daughter Eunice and her husband Jess hope to help him begin life anew. However, Gray's only thoughts are of getting revenge against Dan Mathews for his arrest and conviction. He meets his former partner Stacy Adams and convinces Adams to help with a plot involving a gunfight with two self-righteous local farmers (Crane and Britton) who had threatened to remove Gray from their community at gunpoint if need be. Gray lures the two farmers into a gun battle and has Eunice call the Highway Patrol, correctly figuring that Dan will take the call himself. When Dan and Officer Johnson arrive at the Gables' farm, they quickly realize the true nature of the situation and respond accordingly. Written by Sam Spear

Not so predictable, after all.

The beginning seemed very familiar to people who have seen most of the épisodes of this show. An ex con is released from jail and comes back to his home town; the people who live around are against his come back. And the ex con's daughter tries her best to convince the folks that her dad deserves to have another chance. So far, nothing unusual. The audience predict that every one is going to interfere with the ex con return.

But it appears, not long after, that the "poor" ex con is actually the very bad character of the story, not the neighbours.

Very unusual indeed...
