  • Episode Description
  • When a lawman's gun arm is shot up, he's essentially a sitting duck. That's what Matt figures when his ability to shoot again is in doubt. So, he leaves the badge and Dodge behind as well as Kitty, Festus, Doc, and Newly. Like vultures circling, outlaws start coming in to gun Dillon down. But, Dillon is out and about and a new marshal is in town. He meets a young man who is handy with a gun but refuses to shoot any living creature even if it were for his own life. Circumstances prove to both men that sometimes responsibility to duty requires more than just the ability to shoot.moreless

    • This is Amanda Blake's last episode. After 19 years Kitty leaves Dodge and heads to New Orleans, but you don't find that out till Return to Dodge is released 14 years later.

    • My GOD Dillon has a different shirt. When he is no longer the marshal he dons a light blue shirt instead of the red one.
