  • A young couple is forced to marry in North Fork.

    Lucas rides up from rolling hills to a film set to see what's going on with a bunch of riders. Lucas learns that a young couple (pretending to be two young men) are being taken to North Fork to get married.

    Lucas befriends them after the marriage to take them to his ranch, and offers the young husband a job working on the ranch.

    Back in town, John Anderson (frequent '60s TV guest star), wants to see the young bride, and is told not to during a party in. The party moves out to the McCain ranch, where they wish to have a shivaree (big party).

    While Lucas and Micah speak with assembled group, several people grab the newlyweds, and take them back to town.

    Weird story, Lucas doesn't shoot his rifle, and the end is predictable.
