Pretty good episode that manages a few unexpected turns. Paladin is hired by dad Sebrey to avenge killing of his son by lightning-fast gunfighter Morrita (Dark). However, Sebrey himself turns out to be a ruthless killer so Paladin takes expenses and starts to head home, that is, until Morrita shows up. Then things get interesting.

Hard to say enough about Boone's importance to the series. What an excellent actor, and more importantly for the series, what an authoritative presence. Note how well he acts with his expressive eyes, and when he asserts himself at entry's end, we believe him, in spades. In fact, the tension is somewhat undercut by Dark's rather weak presence compared with Boone's. Also, Dark's struggle with a Mexican accent doesn't help. Nonetheless, it's a fairly imaginative script that includes a young and very lovely Suzanne Pleshette. I can see why Moritta might lose his head over her.
