[first lines]
Clay Culhane: ...And I submit that a cow that isn't born rich hereabouts could die of thirst. Water, if God given, your honor, is meant for everyone, not just the priviledged few who have the money to fence it off.
Virgil Britt: If the Lord put water on my land, he meant it to be!
Judge Caleb Marsh: Mr. Britt, since the Lord wasn't subpoenaed as a witness, we won't attempt to interpret his motives. Sit down.

A Wan's Perspectie
6 December 2012 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

In this episode, Clay Coulhane proves right of way on some water, which ticks off Virgil Britt. Threats are made before they part company. Later, an old man named Ray Tagger tells Clay there is a man he plans to kill. He went to jail for killing him only to learn later he's still alive. Now he plans to kill him, but claim double jeopardy.

A lot of times, when we perform crimes they don't always go as planned. Clay seems to get the short end of the stick, though, when he's accused of murder.

The episode had a few twists and turns in it, which always makes for a MORE interesting story. Though we know how it's going to turn out in the end we like to see how they get there.

Unfortunately, three poor souls during this episode.
