I believe this episode has less dialog than any one hour show to date. As we get an Indian that will not talk while the camera follows him around Dodge on his daily hunt. I always thought that less dialog may be better but this is a time where I was proved wrong.
It begins as a man named Jayce McCaw is trading with a family of Indian. McCaw decides to take advantage of the situation and give them less than what is fair. When the father refused, McCaw took it anyway and then shot the father and wounded the Indian son named Kioga. This left the Indian daughter with McCaw as the picture faded to black. Needless to say things did not go well for the daughter.
Now the rest of the show is Kioga hunting down McCaw to make him pay for what he did to his family. He tracks him to Dodge, buys new clothes, cut his hair and tries to blend in with the crowd. All the time putting pressure on McCaw as he attempts to kill him.
This was not really a poor show, it just seemed like Kioga could have killed McCaw at anytime but always seemed to make a mistake. I guess they need to fill the entire hour so they kept making the Indian's attempts fail. It was getting unbelievable especially after Kioga shoots several times at McCaw with a rifle and Marshal Dillon comes up with gun drawn and tells Kioga to drop the gun. Instead Kioga points it right at the Marshal and Matt does nothing but tell him to drop it again. Anytime else Matt would have fired. Anyway the concept of the story was good- it just did not relate to film as it should.
