Everyone has their own type of justice.
24 September 2013 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

The episode begins at Jonas General Store as Gus Blake is closing the store and counting the money on a very stormy evening. In walks a man that steals the money and shoots Gus. Before dying Gus tells Matt that he got a look at the robbery and is able to give the name Cumbers out before giving up the ghost. Matt knows the Cumbers' but he is not sure if it was Frank or Nate since both of brothers.

Matt goes over to talk with Mrs Cumbers and advises her of the situation. Ms Cumbers tells Matt that if one of her sons is guilty that they have been taught to take care of their own and she will punish the boy. Matt wants it left up to the law and questions each son.

Nate has no alibi for the time of the killing, while Frank was in the company of a saloon girl named Polly. Matt has no other option than to arrest Nate for the killing. But just because Matt may arrest Nate does not mean that the Cumber's form of justice will not be served.

An interesting show that was well written. There is heartbreak for nearly the entire cast as each character will have to face some kind of justice whether or not the form justice is correct. By the end of the episode there will be a different kind of prisoner in the Dodge jail. Good watch.
