  • A band of ex-Confederate soldiers demand $25,000 from Ben to finance the formation of a Second Confederacy. Hoss tries to fight them and is shot by their leader, Shanklin. With the doctor unable to complete the surgery and Hoss near death, a nearly inconsolable Ben tries to persuade Shanklin, a competent doctor, to save his son's life. Meanwhile, Jamie, who witnessed the shooting, searches for Joe who's intently focused on a poker match.moreless

    • Jamie: What about Joe? Ben: Joe is the last person we need out there. He'll either get gunshot or become a hostage.

    • Ben: Shanklin let's get this thing straight right now. Whether my son lives or dies...if we get out of here, you and me alive, I'll spend every breath and penny running you down to the ground and stomping you into it.

    • Hop Sing: Okay Hop Sing is yellow. Hop Sing cook. But I only cook when Mr. Hoss tell me to cook.

    Notes (3)

    • German episode title: "Der Krieg geht weiter", meaning "The War Goes On".

    • Note that it was never explained, in season 14 episodes, how Hoss had apparently died (a close-up of Hoss' photograph on Joe's dresser merely implied his death). Whether it had something to do with the wound he suffered in this episode, we're never told.

    • An ironic, sad episode, particularly given that Dan Blocker would die three months after this episode's original airing.
