  • Episode Description
  • Matt's old friend, Brad McClain, comes to Dodge and is immediately mugged by Yuma Joe. Getting the upper hand, McClain relieves Joe of his gun and sends him on his way. McClain tells Matt he wants to buy a business in Dodge and settle there. Matt introduces him to Jake Bookly, owner of a local stage line that frequently hauls gold from the local mines to Mr. Bodkin's bank. After gathering all of the information he can about the gold shipments, McClain enacts a plan to use Joe as a holdup man during a stage run, thereby killing Joe and setting himself up as a hero. He tells Jake Bookly he'll buy the stage line and is going to drive the stage to Dodge with the large $100,000 gold shippment coming in from the mines. Matt is suspicious of McClain because he has a paper that indicates McClain was involved in a bank robbery a few years earlier and shows up unexpectedly to ride shotgun for McClain. Pretending not to be able to control the horses pulling the stage, McClain knocks Matt out and dumps him on the road. McClain proceeds to an abandoned mine to bury the gold, not knowing Matt has regained consciousness and is trailing him to the mine. A fight ensues between the two and, in the end, McClain is killed.moreless
