  • A corrupt marshal from outside North Fork goes after an outlaw with a price on his head. However, he sees an opportunity to make some extra money, so he murders an innocent man to pass off as the outlaw so he can collect the bounty, and then proceeds to blackmail the real outlaw.

  • The carnival has come to North Fork and so has famed lawman, Jay Jefferson. Mark McCain is in awe of the man but Micah Torrance knows better. Among lawmen, Jefferson has a reputation for killing his opponents even when it isn't called for. He's in North Fork looking for a man named Pete Dawson who still has a price on his head 10 years after committing the crime. Jefferson is not only a killer with a badge but a cheat so it's no surprise when after finding Dawson he decides to extort $2000 from him and kill an innocent man, Curly Smith, to claim the bounty.
