Doc is faced with a dilemma, he’s on the way to save the life of a patient out on the prairie, but he is forced to kill a man who tried to stop him. Isn’t that against his duties as a doctor? Will he be facing jail time?
If anybody can trust Doc’s judgement and decision it’s Matt. The Dodge City lawman is prepared to defend Doc to the utmost. Chester is suspicious of shady characters in town, but Matt isn’t letting scandal shake him from standing by his friend. Kitty is just the person to put the feelers out, and inform Matt if there’s anything brewing in town. What can she learn?
The gunman is the brother of the man doc shot, and though Matt has to deal some six gun justice, the outlaw is alive, and surprised that doc is fixing him up. Have any lessons be learned?
PS: As a topper to doc’s actions, and though a rightful reward is coming to him for catching the outlaw, the reward money goes to a better cause. Is Doc a selfless person or what?
