| Okay, But A Bit Irritating
The show opens with Josh playing poker in a saloon. Someone enters the saloon, Josh recognizes him as a friend and tells him to wait a second until he finishes his hand. The next thing you know, the friend collapses at the door. He is taken to the doctor's office and shortly afterward dies. He does get a chance to talk to his friend Josh, tells him he was innocent of charges and that two men shot him. He asks Josh to promise he will bring him home. It turns out he is wanted (although obviously innocent). After he dies, Josh brings the casket back to where the man, and Josh for awhile, lived. The man's sister and father are there and the three of them arrange for funeral services.

Meanwhile, two other guys - obviously the shooters - track down the dead man and want the body for a reward. They, too, are bounty hunters, and they are the ones that shot the guy. They do some investigating and find out where Randall went and follow him. It's too late to get the body, as Randall as now delivered it, so they ambush Josh, beat him up and demand the $500 reward. Randall doesn't have it, nor would he take it since the man was his friend.

So the bad guys tell everyone that Randall killed the man. The whole town, including the man's sister and father, believe them! That is aggravating to watch. So much for friends.

Things get violent and the end, so, not wanting to use spoilers, I'll end it here.

This was a decent episode but a little too frustrating at times, too. Having Randall accused of a crime he didn't commit, and having no one in a town that all knew him, believe him, was irritating to watch.
