Lucas and Mark welcome back Speed Sullivan and his son Swifty. Speed is still selling lightning rods but this time is not only taking deposits but actually delivering the merchandise. Speed's problems arise when a young woman, Vashti, accused him of physically assaulting her. He did find her unconscious in her house when he made a sales call but he didn't hit her as she claimed. She's obviously lying and it's up to Lucas to get her to tell the truth and get Speed out of Marshal Torrance's jail.
