Two escaped convicts, Biff (Lester Sharpe) and Cactus (Wade Crosby),
decide to take over hermit Old Joe's (Joel Friedkin) shack and his
identity - so they shoot him and throw him off some cliffs. But since two
men can't take over one man's identity ... Biff shoots Cactus and throws
him off a cliff as well. Then Biff, as Old Joe, waits for Joe's sister
Abigail (Anne O'Neal), figuring since she hasn't seen him in 30 years, she
won't be able to tell the difference between him and the real Joe -
despite the fact that he is only half of Joe's age. Abigail however is
quick to tell that Biff's not Joe - not so much because he's a much
younger man than her borther but because of his eye colour. When Biff
prepares to kill her though, the Lone Ranger (Clayton Moore) and Tonto
(Jay Silverheels) intervene. Oh, and in the end, Old Joe has survived
being shot and thrown off a cliff, too.
Lesser episode of the
series, with a premise that's a tad too childish to really work.
