This is an okay episode. I didn't like it because I thought Adam should have been / had more to do in it and very little Hoss in this episode too. Most episodes like this one Adam is usually confided in by Pa and I agree with an earlier poster he should have gone into town with Pa. :shrug

I have to say that the expression on Ben's face here is priceless. As if he would ever sell the Ponderosa.

I like the idea of this episode and the Hackett character. Telly Savalas played him to perfection. What I don't like...this isn't a family episode and most episodes that involve the Cartwrights and their home being threatened like this, show them as a family unit working together. Hackett was so evil i wished he had died.

Hackett was so evil i wished he had died but I guess it was more important to show even strong men have a weakness. His was his heart, not the emotional part but the physical. In essence his weakness was more fatal than those he bullied.
Was Joe ignorant for the part he played in the whole mess? Yes. But Joe is impulsive. He acts first and thinks later, especially in the early years.
