New York newspaperman Ned Travis (Claude Akins) tracks down Jason McCord (Chuck Connors) in hopes of getting the "real story" of what happened at Bitter Creek. Under normal circumstances, McCord would like nothing better than to reveal the truth and clear himself of the charge of cowardice. But this proves uniquely difficult when McCord comes face to face with Sue Pritchett (June Lockhart), the widow of Jason's former commanding officer. This episode was directed by B-picture veteran Joseph H. Lewis, whose films include such cult favorites as The Big Combo and Terror in a Texas Town.
