This was a pretty good episode to have played on LG's birthday today. It's loaded with LG and he is wonderful in it. Once again his land is at risk from some dude who wants the timber. Can't say I understand what loophole would allow a person to take land that is legally Ben's, but I sure hope Ben went and had his deed corrected afterward so that no one in the future can stake claim to it.
Lots of great facial expressions from LG. He looked like he was going to burst out crying when Billy admitted to killing Tanner.
As this was aired today on TvLand, the great editor of showtime to squeeze in more commercial time, I will have to watch it in another venue. The saloon part was missing and lord knows what else.
Good episode all in all.
Is that all you can think about at a time like this, cake???

I believe the name that the warrior gives, Billy Horn, is the same name Michael gave in Cheyenne, The White Warrior! The Beginning has some similarities. Christian Nyby must have written this purposely. The episode shows how hard it could be to be raised by Indians and suddenly live among white men. This a good episode. :yes
