Episode Summary

EDIT
The First Born
AIRED:
Clay Stafford comes to Virginia City and signs on as a ranch hand at the Ponderosa. In short order, he kills a man, claiming self defense, and is told to leave town by the miners who send a message by beating up Joe. Most importantly, Clay drops a major bombshell: he says he's Little Joe's older half-brother and Marie was also his mother. Ben and Joe believe the story, but the other two brothers want to investigate Clay's unusual claim.moreless
