  • Lucas fills in when the first witness in a murder is murdered.

    8.1
    Good storyline with Lucas filling in as a witness, and Mark boasting about it until he realizes his father is really at risk -- and may not come back from Silver City.



    Edgar Buchanan appears again as the doc and Hope Summers as the store keeper (Aunt Bee's friend from "The Andy Griffith Show") appear in their usual roles.



    The intereaction between Mark and his father continues to excel, and this episode is no different. Johnny is not the greatest young actor, but he is very good, and really helps add heart to this episode.



    Downside - Lucas does not use his rifle in this episode.moreless
