In the next-to-last episode where Matt Dillon is the lead ("Hard Labor" aired three weeks later), Matt comes upon the site where thieves ambushed a wagon train and killed everyone on board except for one little girl. The girl is able to point Matt to the home of an aunt who lives nearby, but the aunt -- who fell out with her family long ago -- refuses to take her in. Matt persuades the aunt to at least put them up for a few days, but her "husband" (actually one of the robber-killers) has different ideas and tries to kill Matt when he becomes suspicious.
