  • Episode Description
  • Murdering sidewinder Del Ordman heads to Dodge to kill the marshal for killing his brother, but Matt had to go out-of-town and asked Festus to keep an eye on things. As Matt's leaving, Malachi Harper, a buffalo bone scavenger, arrives in town. He finds a letter waiting for him informing him that his brother Ethan, a well-to-do businessman from Baltimore, is coming through Dodge on his way to San Francisco. Malachi hasn't seen his brother in 35 years but wrote him once and told him that he was the marshal of Dodge City. Festus, Doc and Kitty play along with the charade. Ordman, not knowing the marshal by name, confronts Malachi and tries to kill him. When Matt comes back Festus fills him in on what's going on, while Ordman is facing Malachi down at the Long Branch!moreless
