Episode Summary

EDIT
My Father's Guitar
AIRED:
Jason rides up to Jed Woodard's homestead and asks if he can water his horse. While he's doing that Jed notices a guitar strapped to Jason's horse. He takes it out and starts fooling with it. Jason is very possessive about the instrument and each time he asks Jed to give it to him Jed abuses it a little more. Finally, he's knocking it against a sharp piece of wood and is on the verge of puncturing it. Jason will take no more, draws his knife, and stabs Jed in the chest. He digs a grave but doesn't finish burying the body because two riders are approaching. He arrives in Dodge and stops in at the Long Branch where Kitty is throwing a birthday party for Doc. Kitty asks him to play some music, and he agrees to play in return for some food. The following day Jack and Dan, the two riders that scared Jason off, arrive in Dodge. They disturb the peace and Matt relieves them of their guns. Later that night they get into a fight with Jason and Matt throws them in jail. When Thad notices a particular twenty-dollar gold piece amongst their possessions that he identified to Matt as one Jed wore around his neck all the time, Matt decides to hold them for Jed's murder. Sonny Starr is a peddler that has asked Jason to travel with him and play his guitar to help drum up business. When Jason learns that Jack and Dan are being held for the murder he committed he agrees to go with Starr, but breaks them out of jail first. Jack and Dan catch up to Jason and Starr a short way out of Dodge. They send Starr on his way but keep Jason to find out why he broke them out. They finally put it together and Jason escapes into the nearby woods. While Jack and Dan are hunting Jason down Matt shows up and enters the chase.moreless
