(Season 2, Episode 4; Airdate: 10/07/71)
After playing cards together, Heyes and Curry team up with an aged miner (played by Will Geer) and a fast-shooting, smooth-talking stranger who always seems to wear a smile, to work the old man’s mine in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. In a darker episode than most, the fugitives are challenged beyond most human endurance and it is Curry, and not Heyes, who takes the lead and vows to avenge a wrong regardless of the consequences. “Danny Bilson” is played by Roger Davis, who worked with Pete in The Young Country; Davis also stepped into the role of Heyes after Pete’s death.
