Dillon uses extremely poor judgment to allow Chester to escort to jail the man he had been in a fight with just a few minutes earlier. Compounding this error both Chester and the other man were intoxicated, and Dillon told Chester to go the back way. See more »
At the Long Branch, Chester and Ned Pickard get into an argument. The Marshal intervenes and then tells Chester to take Ned to jail. On the way to the jail, Ned is shot and everyone in town believes that it was Chester that killed him. Even the nosy clerk at the Dodge House, Dobie, thinks Chester should stand trial for murder.
Chester tells Matt that he was hit from behind and does not know how Ned got shot. But with little evidence there is nothing for Matt to do except write the incident up for possible court hearing.
There may have been some questionable writing but nearly all shows have parts that need no explanation for the outcome. Even after half-way through the episode, when we knew the true party involved, it still did not take away from the interest of the show. A nice story that was well acted. Good watch.
