Episode Summary

EDIT
The Squaw
AIRED:
Widower Hardy Tate lost his wife over a year earlier and feels he's got a "lot of livin' to do yet." But his son, Cully, is having trouble getting over it and reluctantly reconciles to the fact that his dad is considering remarrying. When Hardy returns from doing business down in the Indian nations and comes back with Natacea, a young, and incredibly beautiful, Indian bride Cully has a difficult time accepting it. Many of Cully's acquaintances in town can't accept it either, resulting in a bully named Bill Craig beating him up. Matt tries to reason with Cully and deter him from wearing a gun and squaring things with Craig. Matt talks Hardy into marrying his new bride in a church in Dodge to allay some of the hostility, but Cully refuses to attend. Hardy tells Cully he can't tolerate his attitude any longer and invites him to get out on his own. Soon the underlying truth comes out; Cully wants Natacea to run off with him. Hardy catches Cully forcing himself on her, a struggle ensues between the two and Cully's gun goes off! Cully tells Matt Natacea killed his father, and then tried to kill him. Matt's smarter than that.moreless
