Desert Justice - Bonanza S1|23

When a brutal U.S. Marshal arrests one of the Ponderosa's workers for murder to transport him to Los Angeles for trial, and a doubtful Hoss and Adam come along in the stagecoach, along with a Dr. and his beautiful daughter, to make sure the Marshal doesn't kill him before they get there. The question also arises later of whether the ranch worker is really guilty and dangerous after all. Hoss and Joe are stacking hay when Adam and their ranch hand, Dave Walker come out. They're headed into town for a dance, but Dave offers to help stack hay. He's using the pitchfork to toss the hay up to Hoss when a man rides in with a rifle and orders Dave not to move. He's U.S. Marshal Emmett Dowd. He accuses Dave of being a murderer and is taking him back to California. Dave turns, still holding the pitchfork, and Dowd knocks him to the ground. The boys are explaining to Ben what happened and defending Dave. Dowd isn't bothered. He's quietly angry and confident. Since Dowd has the proper paperwork and authority, there's nothing Ben can do and Dowd takes Dave to Virginia City in cuffs. The Cartwrights decide they have to do something to help Dave.
