*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A well dressed stranger in a suit comes across a dead man and when he stops to investigate finds the dead man has been shot in the back. He tries to get the dead man's horse but the horse takes off so he goes back and gets the dead man's gun.

Later the Sheriff tells Ramrod and Steve that the Judge has had a another, but this time fatal, run-in with a well known adversary resulting in the Judge being under suspicion of murder.

The Virginian (Ramrod) finds out that a Ralph Slocum has sold the horse of the dead man and caught a train out of town so likewise catches a train to follow to North Bend Montana.

On the train a husky voiced woman named Angela, who says she's is a singer, asks to sit next to Ramrod as a fatherly type is accosting her. Later at North Bend she is apparently told by an unknown deputy to leave town on a non-existent 3 o'clock train!

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Agreed this is an almost exact copy of a previous episode and the acting is nowhere near as good.

The storyline is as follows:

Colonel MacKenzie is riding past a snow capped mountain and sees a dark horse in the distance with a dazed rider. When Colonel MacKenzie approaches the rider is thrown off her horse so the Colonel takes her to a cabin where he puts her on a bed and is able to ascertain her name is Melissa.

The cabin's owner Muley arrives with a long rifle and the Colonel greets him to avoid being a target. Together they look after the woman Melissa much to Muley's initial disdain as he has a policy of no females in his cabin.

Down in the valley below a man, who says he is her brother, is looking for her as she was supposed to go to a wedding and has gone missing.

Bullied Beef, 19 June 2011
9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Opening on a downed Angas bull which has been poisoned by Loco weed, after a fence was cut, and the Virginian later meeting the widow, Laura Duff, of the property founder.

Her son Jimmy is hot to trot in getting revenge but is talked to by the alcoholic ranch foreman Reedy not that it did much good as it appears Jimmy is intent on causing trouble no matter what.

It looks as though there are a few more suspects than first appears and one in particular is rather close to home. When the Virginians's conversation with Laura about investigating the fence being cut is overheard this leads to the Virginian being shot.
