A former confederate soldier and his gang demand $25,000 from Ben and shoots Hoss, leaving him gravely injured. In an twist of fate, Hoss’ life rests in the hands of the soldier who shot him.

Trivia: This was Charles Cioffi’s first and only appearance in the series. A veteran television actor, he has appeared in a number of daytime serials. However, Mr. Cioffi will most likely be remembered most for his sinister portrayal of revenge-seeking Ernesto Toscano on NBC’s hit soap Days of Our Lives (1965). He can be heard on Pink Floyd’s album, “The Wall”. One of his scenes from Another World (1964) was used as the TV program in the background while the groupie is walking through the apartment (“Are all these your guitars?”), immediately before the song “One of My Turns”.
