| Tough Action Tale
A very solid, hard-nosed episode about thieves after a $20,000 ring. It's being transported to a small town and the man receiving it has been bragging about it so, naturally, two thieves hear about and ambush the pony express rider. However, it takes several of those riders to get killed before the ring is actually delivered and now Josh has been hired to protect it. He's given "help" by the rich man who doesn't trust anyone alone with the package, whenever it does arrive. The "help" turns out to be one of the crooks ("Frank") who had gone back into town for water after his partner was shot at the last holdup attempt and lie wounded.

Going back to the area of the holdups, Randall and his (unknown to him) partner-traitor are shot at by the other thief. Frank shoots his partner. He and Randall then bury him but Frank hits Josh over the head with a rock and pushes him down the hill. He then grabs the ring and scrams. Josh eventually comes to and.....with a little liquid spiritual help (see title of this episode) .....goes after the bad guy and the ring. Good stuff....action-packed the whole 25 minutes.
