  • Mainly features Trampas with a brief appearence by the Virginian at the beginning and with Grainger featuring quite a bit towards the end.

    Having been involved in a stage robbery,Trampas, suffering from memory loss, stumbles into the shack of a farmer and his son and daughter.
    As he struggles to remember his past, Trampas finds himself drawn into the problems of the family with the local deputy sheriff and is accused of being part of the robbery rather than a victim.
    He is eventually found by Grainger and recovers his memory in time to see the baddies brought to justice.
    This epsiode features Don Galloway as the deputy gone bad and Barbara Anderson as the farmer's daughter who spurns the deputy for Trampas. They would both go on to star alongside each other in Ironside a few years later.
