Episode Summary

The Catcher
Catcher is a big, slow witted hired hand on a sheep ranch for Frank Fenway. He earned the nickname for his ability to take a punch in the stomach. Before heading out one morning, another of the hired hands, Lank Bailey, makes a pass at Mrs. Fenway. After hauling a herd of sheep into Laramie, the hired hands gather at the Birdcage, where Catcher and Lank have an drunken altercation. Lank returns to his room, and is confronted by Frank about coming on to his wife. Frank punches Lank, who falls, hits his head, which accidentally kills him. Frank convinces Catcher that they will be looking for him as the killer, and tells him to get out of town. The other hired hands want Catcher hanged immediately, but Dan and Johnny want to bring him in order to get a fair trial.moreless
