A lynch mob is forming, led by Widow Briggs (Gregg) whose womanizing son has been killed by slow-witted Andy (Russell). The sheriff (Swenson) needs help so Paladin's on his way.
If any woman could lead a lynch mob convincingly, it's Gregg, who specialized in just such willful types. Her forceful talents made her a favorite of early series TV. The episode shaped up like a routine one until the neat twist that I didn't see coming. Note how the sense of justice is surprisingly modern. Also, note presence of Bing Russell, Kurt Russell's dad, along with Astaire dance partner Barrie Chase as the sheriff's comely daughter. Except for the twist, however, it's an unexceptional episode.
