Oh. My. Goodness. I don't think I had the fullest understanding of what a man real Hoss is, until I listened closer to his conversation in the barn with Cameo.

Hoss: "You want me to go out there, and risk my neck to save him so he can have you?"

Cameo: "Yes... that's what I want!"

Hoss: "Let's go."

What a man to be willing to save his rival's life, just to let him have his girl!! That's a true man, right there. :yes

That's Hoss for you. Love as big as the ocean, heart as big as the sky. :hoss

Hoss would undoubtedly be my favorite Cartwright if his big brother had been almost anybody in the world other than Adam.

I don't know anyone who doesn't like Hoss, but this was definitely a heroic moment. Cameo was a fool.

That seemed pretty common among girls the Cartwright boys fell for, didn't it?

Saw this today for the second viewing. Was pretty brutal with the hanging scenes and quite uncomfortable to watch. I was not very happy that Ben didn't believe Hoss when he said that he hadn't helped the baddies to escape from prison. At first Ben was angry with the men for not believing Hoss and then, straight after the men had ridden away, he turned to Hoss and asked if he HAD in fact helped them escape. Why didn't he believe his son?! :sad Hoss's depression in the barn was very moving to watch. He'd obviously been sitting there for a long time and when he said "I ain't never helping nobody no more", I found this very sad, that she had hurt him so much to reduce him to this. It showed just what a good man he was that he did actually go to help. Not sure what the guy died of at the end, maybe he had a heart attack?! :shrug Sure was some powerful sibling rivalry going on in this ep. :thumbup

... just an aside, but I was interested to see Joe using his right hand to fill the bullets like this, I would have expected him to do this with his left.

Mike was probably ambidextrous. He also played tennis with his right hand. :laughing
