When West and Gordon are present when a town's philanthropist is shot and West chases the shooter and finds him just sitting clutching the gun as if nothing happened. At his trial, a witness claims that he's the shooter. And the banker who denied a loan he asked for, who appears to have been the actual target, testifies that the man threatened him. The defendant claims to have no memory from the night before till West found him. He's found guilty and sentenced to death by hanging withing two days. When Gordon raises some anomalies, they decide to look into it deeper. They start by talking to the defendant who tells them of why he woke up just as West found him. They check it out and find a device that was used but someone burns the place and they have no evidence to give to the judge and the prosecutor convinces the judge not to delay the execution so they have to rush to prove the man's innocence.Written by
Or you can replace Harry Dean Stanton character as a kind of Lee Harvey Oswald...That's my own interpretation of this basic story; the only link that first came to my mind. A rather unusual W W WEST show indeed, but with some recurrent elements though. And I also found weird the more than supporting character, just at the beginning, whom the camera focuses on, with no reasons at all, this old rude man at the buffet.
