  • Outlaws hole up at Shiloh, taking the Graingers hostage.

    7.0
    This is pretty much your typical outlaws-take-over-the-ranch episode, with the exception of the tense psychological interplay between John Grainger and Del Stetler (the Modoc Kid). Charles Bickford is at his stern, stoic best as he bandies words and trades stares with John Saxon's barely-controlled braggadocio. The resolution is abrupt but pretty satisfying, with Stacy getting to take out the Harrison Ford gunman, and Grainger himself (aided by his old pistol) managing to target Stetler. This was a much better result than simply having Ryker ride in to save the day. The final scene is corny, with the new rooster crowing and Grainger telling his grandkids it's time to get back to raising chickens, followed by a strange screen shrinking effect.moreless

    • Grainger (to Del Stetler): I see a little boy sitting at the head of my table, doing his best to act like a big man.
      Stetler: Well, the facts is what count. We're both sittin' at the table, only I'm at the head of the table, you're not, and that's a fact.
      Grainger: It's also a fact that we're both eating eggs, only mine are bought and paid for. Yours are stolen.

    • Stetler: Yessir, Mr. Grainger. I'm gonna get me a spread just like this. A nice hardwood table, country breakfast, nice girl to cook it.
      Grainger: What about Stacy?
      Stetler: He's learnin' his manners. Won't hurt him to be hungry once in his life.
