While Hoss is in a remote town on business, he is arrested for murder and robbery.

Trivia: This was Yaphet Kotto’s first and only appearance in the series. He is the son of a Cameroon Crown Prince. He turned down the role of Lando Calrissian in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980). He feared that Lando would be killed in the movie, and that he would be forever typecast.
