Flint goes into a nearby town for supplies and encounters Luke O'Malley who may be the only other man in town who is not at the hanging of his "friend" Dan Romero. Romero believes Luke cheated him at cards for $20,000 and turned him into the law but neither is true. When Romero's gang helps him escape, Luke takes his two kids and leaves town fearing revenge from Romero. He masquerades as a widowed minister and joins the wagon train. The Major and others learn Luke is a fake and think he is working with Romero. They take Luke prisoner but he escapes and tries to ward off Romero but is captured with Flint by Romero. Flint escapes and warns the train while Luke's kids try to gain Luke's release.
