Guiseppe 'Joseph' Soldano and his wife arrive in Laramie and are hired by Lily to put on their high wire act to draw customers. During the first show someone shoots off the end of the balancing pole causing Joseph to lose his balance and sprain his wrist. Troop tries to investigate the shooting but Joseph and his wife refuse to admit they have any enemies. They decide to leave Larmie and go further west but when Laura finds a warning from the "Black Hand" she decides it is time to stay and fight. Joseph is against it. He explains to Troop that the "Black Hand" is from his old country in Europe and expects payments which he has refused. As they stage their act a second time, Troop spots a rifle at the stable and fires stopping the attack.
