Episode Summary

EDIT
The Reward
AIRED:
Jim Forbes returns from serving three years in prison for "swindling" the folks of Dodge. He had ran out of money mining for gold, salted the mine (planted high grade quartz ore in it), and borrowed funds from the townspeople to continue mining. Now, backed by money provided by his sister, he's reopened the mine in order to prove to the people of Dodge that there is gold in it, and to pay them back. Once locals Jason Holt and Clint Fisher find out that Forbes has some money in the bank they demand he make restitution with it, forcefully. Things eventually deteriorate to the point where Forbes straps on a gun and goes looking for Holt and Fisher!moreless
