Matt Dillon is the first man they look for, and the last they want to meet. It’s a job that’s a little bit chancey, and a little bit lonely.
Today, Matt and Chester walk the street, and pause to watch the stage coach pull in. An old friend of Matt’s arrives, Troy. He’s a lawman who is on the track of an outlaw. Troy also seems to have a chip on his shoulder when Matt offers a little help.
Matt and Kitty talk in the salloon, and after she complains about needing a vacation after the last mob of trail riding cowboys, attention turns to Troy. Troy has had a little fight, and seems paranoid. Though he leaves to cool down, Mat is afraid his friend has other problems under the surface. In a confrontation, we learn what Troys problem is. His eyesight is failing.
After a reluctant exam by doc, it is revealed that Troy is at least at a point of severe vision loss that shouldn’t get any worse.
The wanted man makes his appearance in town, and though Matt promised to let Troy run the showdown, Matt makes sure he is present for the face off. Will Troy get his man? When the gunsmoke clears, there’s two men on the ground. Has any lessons been learned? Maybe: Never take a knife, or a blind gunslinger to a gunfight. Or something like that.
