But Nielsen wants it all ranch, cattle, the works. He contracts to have Conway ambushed and killed and then spreads the rumor that it was visiting gambler/gunfighter Clu Gulagher who did the deed. Gulagher turned down Nielsen's job offer before.
This episode marked Clu Gulagher's debut as a Virginian regular. Clu was a guy born for western roles and the enigmatic Emmet Ryker fits him perfectly.
For Clu's fans everywhere.
