  • Episode Description
  • Medicine Bow storekeeper, Benjy Davis, a friend of the Virginian, is sentenced to death for murdering Hobey Kendall, a man who sexually assaulted his wife. However, Benjy says he had met a man near the murdered man's home named Jonah McIntosh and the Virginian traces that man to a colony of mountain men near Wind River. Jonah admits he killed Kendall in self-defence but will not return to clear Benjy. The Virginian takes Jonah a prisoner but has a difficult time getting Jonah back to Medicine Bow due to the pursuing mountain men and an encounter with a murderous trapper. He manages to accomplish his task thanks to the help of a beautiful young Shoshone widow, Hapamawa and to a growing respect and trust between himself and Jonah.moreless

    • Walter Woolf King was a semi-regular playing the Judge in the Medicine Bow court. Usually he is not given a name. However, he is referred to here in the closing credits as "Judge Plant" in contrast to an earlier episode ("Rope of Lies," Season 2 episode #25) where he is listed as "Judge Bradford", another earlier episode ("A Gallows for Sam Horn," Season 3 #12) where he is listed as Judge MacDonald, and the later "Deadeye Dick" (Season 5, episode #9) where he is referred to as "Judge Winters"

    • The Virginian and Emmett Ryker are the only regulars to appear in this episode and Emmett's appearance is relatively brief in scences at the beginning and end of the episode.
