Jarrod has some decent scenes wrestling with the moral dilemma that surrounds him and his family, and I just love the way Nick comes around from being anti-Jubal to being ready to knock the lights out of anyone who shows him disrespect.
But that's where the good points of this episode end.
It's another property dispute and another lynch mob ready to take the land by force and another time that the region collectively hates the Barkley's. The fact that sly old Jubal lived that long only to be broadsided by a gunman and killed off in the last scene is annoying - really, did they have to do that?
But it's the last scene that makes a mockery of the whole episode. Jubal's fresh in his grave, and Jarrod tells his orphaned grandson, smiling, that the dam will go on as planned and could they name it after his grandfather?! "Um, yeah - he just got murdered for something he stood up to, so now that he's gone and it's happening, let's insult his memory further by naming it after him!" Haha, and then Victoria makes a touching speech to said young'un about not being bitter, he changes his mind and says they can call it Jubal Dam, or Damn Jubal, or what have you. Jarrod gives him a bank draft and a train ticket, and they all go merrily off to the train station. Moral of the story: everyone is happy when an old codger gets knocked off for standing in the way of progress.
