This is not one of my favorite episodes. A town drunk is just that - a drunk. That's all he ever thinks about. Hoss (Disapointingly, the only Cartwright who shows up in this episode) has taken the man under his wing to help him find a decent way to live, but Charlie is just too hooked on the venom liquor. So instead, an army officer decides to use HIM to scout for them and find water...Good move, right?
Hoss has to go with the man (yep, a babysitter) to make sure he stays clean and is able to fulfill his job. Unfortunately, the scout the army fired (played by Peter Whitney, a great baddie) is mad and was only scouting to steal the gold. Now he's planning on killing some people to get to the gold.
Lewt Cutter - that's the bad guy - stays a head of the army and poisons the water, making the men very upset with Hoss and Charlie. How will Charlie ever get himself out of this mess? Well, you'll have to watch it to find out...or not...
