Episode ten of the 1960s feature-length American western series following the adventures of Marshal Jim Crown (Stuart Whitman). In this episode Deputy MacGregor (Percy Herbert) is in charge while Marshal Crown is out of town, but things don't run smoothly. After a prisoner, Luther Happ (Harry Dean Stanton), escapes from Cimarron jail, MacGregor pursues him and kills him, but ends up getting shot too. MacGregor is then arrested for the prisoner's murder as it comes to light that Happ was also a Deputy. Under the authority of dishonest Sheriff Hawkes (Clifton James), MacGregor is sentenced to be hanged, that is until he escapes from jail along with his cellmate who is chained to him. When Marshal Crown gets word of what has happened, he returns to try and find MacGregor before Sheriff Hawkes does.
