Episode Summary

The Protectors
The new nesters around Laramie have brought a paid gunman, Gill Craig, with them for protection. Gill has his own agenda, starting a range war, in order to gain control of the area. Nester, Allen, thinks that hiring Gill was a mistake and joins with Slim and Jess' efforts to prevent the brewing range war. Gill has a side romance going with a leading rancher's wife, Celie Rawlins. After Gill kills her husband and dumps her, she proposes that the ranchers bring in their own protection. The ranchers agree thinking that their protectors will take their orders from the sheriff. The ranchers send Jess with Celie to bring the gunmen in on the train. When Celie discovers that Jess can't be corrupted she arranges for Jess to get thrown off the train. The final showdown is a battle between the farmers along with Slim and Jess, Gill and his men, Celie and her gunmen, and the sheriff and his posse.moreless
