Episode Summary

Old Stefano
Tracy McNeil is a supposed businessman who is showing an inordinate interest in Lily Merrill. Johnny teases Dan about it, but Dan doesn't want to interfere. In fact, Lily is interested in buying McNeil's thoroughbred horse, but his price is too high: to try to persuade Dan to let him buy up land that isn't really for sale. Meanwhile, Old Stefano, a mute old shepherd who comes to town with an injured sheep dog, is accused of killing McNeil's injured horse. Dan has to intervene in McNeil's behalf.moreless

    I didn't like make Stefano a mute. I know why they did it, but it just didn't work for me. I was really surprised at the degree of animal violence. You had the dog injured by a bear attack, and a horse lying dead in the stall. The good part of the show was the conflict between Tracy and Dan over Lily. She was hoping he'd be jealous, and he tries to pretend he's oblivious, which riles her up even more. Johnny does a good job here of egging him on. The accident scene was also pretty intense. The stuntwoman for Lily flying into the air off that buggy. So of the scenes I recognized as the ones used in the promos on Encore Westerns for this series. Dan getting shot was a surprise, but I think it added to the story. The closing scene with Dan, Johnny, and Lily was a nice touch.moreless
