After the story in the previous episode about the Russian Kid, Pat Friday wants to hear another Robin Hood style tale of a bad man gone good. Not letting her down, Roy tells this story about an outlaw, Joaquin Murietta.
The wounded Murietta isn’t getting much sympathy with the frontier doctor. Other patients may take priority, but the doctor promises to come back, and not as an informant to the law. Can he be trusted to be a man of his word?
With the wound well on the way to mending, the doc feels obligated to do his civic duty. But who is that same old Mexican who keeps crossing his path?
The doctor is a man of his word, and Joaquin Murietta rides away. Will his many disguises keep him safe?
