Summary[]

Trace Cordell, ex-convict, is back in Virginia City and unwelcome, especially by banker Paul Dorn who was crippled by Cordell.

Now married to Trace's former girlfriend, Paul uses his pull to get Cordell out of the picture--permanently.

Plot[]

When Trace Cordell comes back to Virginia City after serving his time for bank robbery, Ben Cartwright is among those at the stage to welcome his former neighbor home.

But, except for Ben, no one is happy when the ex-con wants to take up where he left off, running his family's ranch outside of town; especially not banker Paul Dorn, the man who was put in a wheelchair by Cordell's bullet five years earlier.
