This episode is one of those that confirmed why this series rose to number one in the ratings and stayed there for a great number of years. The script is entirely unpredictable, and ultimately presents how it is most important to size up the character of anyone you are trying to guide, or go up against.
The plot is too rich to give any of it away and if one has not seen this episode, then steer clear of any explanations and just watch it. You owe yourself that much!
Gunsmoke rose well above the typical 1950's era "shoot-em-up" Cowboy show. It did that in episodes like this one, that put character development and layered plot ahead of all else.
