A poor choice will haunt a father for the rest of his life.
In this episode we get an ornery old man, Kader (John Carradine), that believes you have to settle any dispute with a gun. When some gypsies camp on his property he starts taking pot-shots at them so they will leave his land. He wants his son, Danny Kader, to come with him but Danny does not believe in shooting at people that are doing no harm. Danny gets so upset that he leave the farm and heads into Dodge.
But there is more to this story, as Danny has been secretly seeing one of the gypsy woman and now decides to run off with her to get married. But the gypsies have other plans which will only make Danny become more like his father than he could have ever guessed.
A tragic story that was very well played by the actors. Darryl Hickman does a great job of playing the young man in love wanting something that he could never possess. And Carradine is well casted as the older man that is set in his ways. Even with the episode not ending as most viewers would prefer, this story was still entertaining enough to make for a nice show. Good watch.
