Episode Summary

Stage Stop
In the pilot episode, gang leader Bud Carlin swears that he will get one of his gang members out of the Laramie jail. Drifter Jess Harper is mistaken for one of the Carlin gang and run out of town. Stopping to rest on the Sherman ranch, Jess is confronted by the owner, Slim Sherman, and ordered off the property. Jess gets the upper hand, but leaves Slim's guns behind as he goes on his way. He ends up at the ranch homestead, which also serves as a waystation for the stage line. Slim's younger brother Andy, bored and lonely, finds Jess an exciting, romantic figure and dreams of travelling with him, to Slim's consternation. Slim's suspicion and resentment must be laid aside when Bud Carlin takes over the station as his first step to getting his colleague out of jail.moreless
