Better than expected episode.
9 October 2013 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

This episode begins with a bang when a man recognizes Ira Pickett on a Dodge train as the one that killed his brother. Ira pulls a gun out and shoots the man. A passenger and his son, Arnie and Jared Sprague, hold Ira until they reach Dodge and turn him over to the Marshal.

Waiting at the train station is Ira's father and brother, Osgood and Joseph Pickett, when they hear about Ira's problem they seek out the witnesses to the shooting and make them come around to their way of thinking. Osgood Pickett, who has a smooth way of talking, eliminates one witness and then goes after the Sprague family. He holds the Sprague mother and daughter hostage while Arnie changes his story of the shooting so that Ira will be released from jail. But the ordeal will not be over with the release of Ira.

A better episode than expected. Was not to keen on seeing Harry Morgan playing a rough Osgood Pickett but he came across very convincing and really brought the character to life. In fact was very impressed with the entire cast as the show was so entertaining that the episode seemed short in length. A good watch.
