Main Characters: The Mother and daughter Spitfires

Bonanza Characters: Little Joe and Ben

After Little Joe catches a man burning their land, he has to kill the man in order to stop the fire. The daughter is naturally upset and tries to kill Little Joe. Oh, but here's the clincher: she's not like anybody else. she's a dirty, smelly, no-manners, cursing spitfire. And her mother's much worse! We're talking a different kind of people who sees nothing wrong with killing.

This episode shows the other side of life - those backwoods people who like living that way and want to keep living that way. The Mama carries a gun and is probably more of a gunfighter than her husband and boys put together. Yep, you know the type...
