Dixie Howard is on the run, one step ahead of a bounty hunter when he and his companion Julie stop in Laramie to pick up a supply of whiskey. Dixie is forced into a gunfight and he ends up killing one of the stage drivers who suddenly recognized him. He's wounded and desperate for help, sending Julie to contact Jess Harper. Jess and Dixie rode together when Jess was young and he feels an obligation toward the man which puts him at odds with Slim Sherman, who's concerned that Jess doesn't see Dixie Howard for the killer he's become. Jess agrees to hide the pair out at a remote line cabin on the Sherman ranch but on the way there Kramer, the bounty hunter, catches up with the trio. Jess is able to disarm Kramer but Dixie shoots Kramer in the back anyway. Gradually Jess comes to realize that Dixie is no longer the man he once knew and that could be very dangerous for both Jess and Julie. Written by DarSpi

From out of the past

This Laramie episode has someone coming from out of Jess Harper's days as a gunfighter. Rod Cameron who was something of a mentor to Robert Fuller back in the day gets into a gunfight and kills a man and is wounded himself. Wanted now Cameron needs Fuller to help get him and girlfriend Joan Tabor out of the territory. And Fuller feels he owes him.

The episode provides a stark contrast between how the years can change someone. Fuller has gone straight and now has a friendship with John Smith and is an integral part of Sherman ranch and stagecoach station. Cameron has grown meaner and nastier and is getting to enjoy the use of a gun for its own sake.

It's a fine character study and there's also a good performance by Dennis Patrick as a real bottom feeding bounty hunter.
