Ryan Swan must carve his way through the Hawaiian crime world to wreak vengeance on the kingpin who murdered his father.

[indistinct chattering]

[sighs]

Now, that's an awful lot
of noise coming out of there.

[Sid] Hey, well,
it's big night
for the kid.

And he got
the girl he wanted.

- Yeah?
- Yeah.

After we got rid of her pa.

Yeah.

We can't have the kid go
to jail for killing
a floozy.

- Hmm.
- She was worthless anyway.



And how about the pathetic
sheriff that came along
with her?

Yeah, and you know
what, Pa?

I could have taken him
face on.

[Blair] Well, what would've
happened then?

Oh, you aren't
good at math,
so, you know,

he wouldn't have had
a bride then, would he?

[soft chuckle]
Well, he sure got her now.

And you-- you know,
you've been taking care
of that kid

since the day he was born.

Now that he's got
a real woman,

he ain't got a clue
what to do with her,
so I'm thinking maybe...

you know, maybe I should
give him some pointers.

Oh, I got a brother
gonna outshine
another brother.

Are you kidding me?
Get the ruler out.



- I should.
- [Blair] Sure.

- We got a ruler in the bedroom.
- Ruling brother.

I'm shining my shoes there
every night.

Hello.

Well, speak of him,
here he is.

Through a doorway,
won't you?

A brother, a bit lit up.

- [Sid] Oh, no, look at you.
- Gentlemen.

♪♪

[sighs]

[whispering]
Dear God, please help me.

Come on, come on.

Say, I'm looking for a woman,

about yea tall,
blonde, white dress,

prettiest damn thing
you ever seen in your life.

[chuckles] You already
lost your wife.

[Blair] Where do you think
she is right now?

[laughing] What?

She's doing something
you have never had
nor will have, except her.

Getting prettied up for you.
For you.

Look at that pathetic face.

She getting prettied--
That guy is kissing wood.

Oh, Jocelyn.

Oh, Jocelyn,
my lady.

[Blair] She'll never
touch your lips, son.

She'll never
touch your lips.

Silly drunk.
Cheers to that.

To the Callahan boys.
Congratulations.

All right.
Thank you, Pa.

Let's get you
some coffee.

♪♪

Whoa! Whoa.

Well, howdy, pilgrim.
You play that thing?

Sure do.

Where are you heading?

Meeting a friend
up at the next station.

Rhyker's station?

Well, that's where I'm headed.

Red Linstrom.

Billy Tyson.

Billy, good to meet you.

Why don't you tie your pony up
to the wagon and come on board?

- I could use the company.
- All right, then.

[sighs]

- Come on.
- Yeah, Billy.

I saw you
down in Mesilla.

Uh, you were gambling
with some Mexican kids,
letting them win.

I'm from Tennessee, myself.

- You're riding the grid line?
- Sometimes.

Yeah, I used to do that
when I was your age.

Then they pinned
a badge on me.

I was that way
for a couple of years.

A young lady hog-tied me.

I started a freight line,

had to feed
the wife and kids.

What about you?
Got a girl?

Nope.

Don't want
to settle down?

Mm-mm.

Don't like
responsibility?

Nope.

Yeah, I had a couple of kids
like you.

Always having fun.

So, what are you doing
at Rhyker's?

Just meeting a friend
at the next relay station.

Well, it's good
to have you aboard.

[panting]

[whimpering and sobbing]

[crows caw]

[horse whinnies distantly]

Help.

Please stop.

Help!

- [panting]
- Whoa, whoa.

- Help me! Please...
- That looks like...

Miss Miller
and Sid Callahan.

[Sid] Jocelyn!

Oh, sweetheart!

[Sid sighs]

We missed your reception.

- [cries]
- It's time to come home.

- Help me!
- [grunts]

- My brother's
waiting for this--
- Let her go.

Oh, back off, son.
This here is
my brother's wife.

Ow!

Goddamn! She bit my hand!

I said, let her go.

[Sid sighs]

Listen, sonny,

she's coming back
with me, all right?

Let this go, Sid.

Excuse me?

That there is Billy Tyson.

Billy Tyson?

Never heard of him.
Never heard of him.

[Twigs]
He'll take you down.

Oh, is that right?

Get on your horse
and get out of here.

Well, I suggest
you slap leather

and get the hell
out of my way.

Sid, you're
more gurgle than guts.

Now leak out
of the landscape.

Old man, you just mind
your own business.

Backing off, sonny, or what?

No. You are.

- [gunshot]
- Ah! Dang!

Now you can die...

or we can talk about West Texas
and the Bonneville Ranch.

This ain't over.

Mm-mm, not by a long shot.

And I'll be seeing you,
sweetheart.

Find my pa.

[grunts]

Meet us back at the ranch.
Come on.

Hyah.

You okay?

Yeah.

You're okay.

Ma'am, it's okay.

Easy now.

You're riding
a dangerous trail.

So are you.

And I got no answers.

But that lady
is Jody Callahan's wife,

and he's putting
together his own posse.

I've got you.
You're gonna be okay.

You know, Sid's never
been treed before.

Seemed like it was
about time.

Let's get her
to the wagon.

I got some blankets
in the back.

It's going to be dark soon,

so we can set up camp
in that canyon over there.

It's got a spring.

I'll get her some water.

I'll get her some food.

We'll be at Rhyker's
tomorrow. Here.

Callahans will be here
in a couple of days.

Go easy on the water.

Here, get some rest.

Don't worry about a thing.
You'll be okay.

♪♪

Thought old man Callahan
was with you.

Nah, he left couple
of hours ago
to check on Jody,

back at the ranch.

Where's Sid?

Went back home
to change his clothes.

What the devil
happened out there?

Some kid stepped in.
Billy Tyson.

Ain't never heard of him.

Sid take him down?

Hmm, there was
a standoff for a bit,

until Sid put his fist
in that girl's face.

You know, Sid got
a temper, ain't he?

Yeah, yeah,
but I'll tell you,

you ever seen a rattlesnake
sunning itself, real
peaceful-like,

and then you throw
a rock at it?

- Mm-hmm.
- Yeah. That's Billy Tyson.

Hmm. Mm-hmm.

Get on with it, then.

You know, it got hot.

Sid went for his gun first.

- [gunshot]
- Billy was faster.

Hell, Sid, barely has his Colt
halfway out the holster

before he was staring
back at Billy's.

Yeah. Kid could have
shot him dead right there.

But he waited,
made him sweat.

I think old Sid
shit his pants.

Where were you
when all of this
was going on?

I was staring down
that old man's rifle barrel.

Yeah, I figured they went
to that relay station
over on Wild Horse Flats,

Rhyker's?

Well, we got Hardy
hanging out over there.

- You keep a watch out for.
- Yeah.

We'd best get back to the ranch
and give our report,

because Callahan is gonna
want to call the shots.

But I don't think he's going
to want any trouble there
at Rhyker's.

- Let's go see
the old man, then.
- Let's go.

♪♪

Whoa!

[Red] You know, that was
a pretty amazing thing you did,

putting your life
on the line for that woman.

Now we're going
to Rhyker's.

You're going to meet
your friend there?

He's not going to be there.

You still
coming with us?

Okay.

[sighs]
Let's go take care of her.

Hey, sunshine.
Time to get up.

I think you need a drink.
I know I do.

- Here.
- Thank you.

Okay, that's enough.

You're gonna founder.

How long have you
been out here?

Almost a week.

My horse threw me
and ran off two days ago.

Left me
without food or water.

Well, that's pretty rough.
Where are you going?

I have an uncle
in St. Louis.

Oh. We'll get you a stage
at Rhyker's.

Can I pay when I get
to St. Louis?

[chuckles]

You don't have
to worry about that.

I got a load of goods here
for Rhyker's.

I'll get you
something to wear.

Here, come on down.

I hope this fits.
I know it's going
to look good on you.

Thank you.

Why don't you go
over there somewhere
and get dressed?

Billy and I will get
the camp set up.

♪♪

Well, now that's
the girl I remember.

Your daddy,

he was a sheriff
at Three Wells.

You used to hang around
the office.

Here, have some coffee.

It might be cold,
but it-- it'll be wet.

- Thank you.
- So you married
a Callahan, eh?

They're a pretty
rough bunch.

I heard they came up
from Texas in a hurry.

Jody said they had some problems
with the rangers
over their brand.

So they ended up
selling their ranch

and moving up here
with their herd.

Jody's a lot younger
than his brothers,

so they give him
anything he wants.

Guess that includes me.

I heard there were seven
brothers.

There were.

Three of them
died in the war,

and two were shot down
in Texas after the war.

Squatters, Jody said.

West Texas?

I don't know.

My mother died
a few years ago.

And then a couple
of months back,

my father was shot down
in the middle of the night.

I was so lonely,
and Jody was so sweet.

A week ago, we got married
at the church.

The reception was that night
at Callahan's ranch.

Everyone was drinking
too much.

[Sid] Oh, no.

Well, speak of him,
here he is.

[Jody laughs]

- Gentlemen.
- [Sid] He needs pointers.

We'll drink to that.
Join the club.

[laughing]

My dress was so hot,
and I was so tired,

and it was loud and crowded,
and I couldn't breathe.

I stepped outside alone
for a breath of fresh air.

- Don't y'all think
it's noisy in there?
- Yeah.

[Jocelyn]
I could hear the voices,
but they couldn't see me.

Well, it's big night
for the kid.

And he got the girl
that he wanted.

[chuckles]

After we got rid of her pa.

It was Sid and Mr. Callahan...

talking about how
my father was killed

so Jody could marry me.

Something about stopping him
from arresting Jody
from murder.

Can't have the kid go to jail
for killing a floozy,
though, can you?

"A floozy," they said.

She was pathetic,
that girl.

I stayed out of sight
and was too afraid
to go back inside.

You can have them
arrested and hanged.

I think they said
it was Sid who shot
my father,

but no one will believe me.

It's my word
against the Callahans',

and they'll just deny
everything.

But it's the truth!
I know it!

I took a saddled horse
with a canteen and bedroll,

and I just rode away.

Where would you go?

North, to the stage road,

but I got lost somewhere
in the hills.

Ended up on foot
with no food or water.

[sighs]

I'm sure they know
we're heading to Rhyker's.

Now I've got
the two of you in trouble.

[chuckles]
Don't worry.

We'll be safe at Rhyker's.
He's a good man, a tough man.

And his wife is
a Mescalero Apache.
She's tough.

She won't let anything
happen to you.

Thank you.

And thank you for my dress.

It'll always be my favorite.

You were the brave one.

[Red grunts]

He's a kid.
They're not too smart.

[sighs]

Is he blaming me
for what happened?

[Red] Not at all.

He's got his own misery,
whatever it is.

He wanted to kill Sid so bad,
his hand was turning white.

When Sid hit you in the face,

that was just
too much for Billy.

It was more than that.

He looked like
a left-handed guy.

I'm grateful, all the same.

Well, you're never going
back to the Callahans.

You're with us now.

♪♪

[Joe] Honey,
we got a stage coming.

Hold!

This is an outrage.

You were for sure in the lead
when they were handing out
tongues, Mr. Potts.

[Joe] Ma'am.

[Hal] Hey, Joe,
we've got a real problem.

- I mean, a real problem.
- How's that?

Well, we were going down there
to old Holy Grail.

I hit some rocks and broke
that rear axle support,

tore up the undercarriage.

I mean, we're not going
to make it to the next stop.

We're going to have
to fix it now.

Well, then maybe he shouldn't
have been going so fast.

Well, Mr. Potts,
if I wasn't such a good hand
with my lines,

we'd be at the bottom
of that mountain, in a heap.

That fresh team
from the last station

could have hardly
hold them back.

Looks like we're going to have
to put you folks up for a while.

You'll get your luggage
soon as we get it down.

And I suppose
you expect us
to carry them?

Yeah.

This could never
happen in Boston.

Joe, this is going to take
a couple of more days.

Well, northbound ain't due
for another week.

Give Chauncy some time
to work on it.
Yeah, Chauncy?

- Yes, sir, boss.
- All right.

What's the squaw
doing here?

Oh, that's my wife,
Nellie.

She's the cook,
so you'd better
watch your mouth.

Unless, of course,
you want to end up
with a real bellyache.

And I'm expecting he's going
to carry our luggage for us.

No, he's a customer,
just like you.

We'll get your luggage, sir.
Go on inside.

♪♪

...because he'll talk
all night long.

Ho! Ho!

[chuckles] Hey, Joe.

- Hey.
- This is Miss Miller.

- Ma'am.
- That the southbound stage?

Yeah, it's busted.
You got my goods?

Yes, sir.

[Joe] Chauncy
will help me unload.

- You bring my apples?
- Yes, sir, I did.

[Joe] All right!

Don't worry about the wagon.
He'll take care of your team.

That is, if you're
staying a while?

Oh, we're staying.
When's the northbound due?

Oh, about a week.

They cut back on their runs,
even though I told them

the Mescaleros never
come out this far.

Would you help her down?

Sure. Ma'am.

There you go.

And that's my friend,
Billy Tyson.

Howdy.

You hungry?

[Red] They are.

[Joe] Well, let's get on
in there and get a meal.

Let me take your horse, son.
I'll put him away.

Thank you.

[Red] All right.
That's right.

[sighs]

Who's that?

Customer. Name's Hardy.
He's waiting on some friends.

Figures. Don't turn
your back on him.

You know
something I don't?

I'll tell you later.

Right now, she needs
some freshening up.

- You got any luggage, ma'am?
- No, sir.

All right,
let's get you on inside.

- There you are.
- Thank you.

Who's that pretty
young thing in there?

We picked her up a while ago.

Sid Callahan was trying
to grab her.

The kid stepped in
and made him cow down.

[Joe] You're telling me
that kid is faster
than Sid Callahan?

[Red] Hands down.
The way I look at it,

Sid had to run home
and change his clothes.

But I got to get rid of that
girl.

I'm gonna take her
north in my wagon.

They'll just
track you down.

And you'd be all
by your lonesome.

You'd be safer here, Red.

What about the kid?

He ain't afraid
of nothing...

except that girl.

As for the Callahans,
he's got a heat in him
that's gonna boil over.

How much time we got?
I saw that Hardy ride off.

He don't matter.

They already know
where she is.

[sighs]

All right,
let's get some grub.

Come on in.

[Chauncy] Think we got this
almost ready.

[grunts]

Okay.

You ready to put this on?

I wish I drank
more coffee this morning.

Well, that Nellie,
she sure is a good cook.

I thought they could
keep me safe, provide...

- Thank you.
- Thank you, Miss Nellie.

And then when I heard
Sid and Mr. Callahan

talking that night...

- Let's see
if your boys will eat.
- Sure.

You boys hungry?

Hey, boys,
there's a rider coming.

I've been sent

What for?

He wants her back.

Well, she believes
the Callahans
murdered her father.

Why the hell

Well, he figures
she owes him
an explanation.

He had no idea
why she left,
what she knows.

All right.

We'll bring her on the porch,
but Billy and I
will be with her.

And that's all.

No one's going
to touch her.

Not ever.

Billy, you got to know.

The Callahans are planning
to hang you for shaming Sid.

Figured as much.

All right.

Billy and the girl.

And the stagecoach driver.

But it's pretty wide open
all around there.

The only cover
is the high ground
behind the house.

There's a shed.

I think we can get
some men in the gullies
around the place as well.

There's a spring
one canyon over.

We can camp there tonight,
get a closer look
in the morning.

I say we camp three men
at the south,
three to the north.

Keep them from leaving?

My own father was killed
by Jody's family.

I still feel so much guilt.

Your father was killed
because Jody killed a woman,

and your pa was going
to arrest him for it.

I still feel awful.

Nothing's your fault.

Except being too pretty
for your own good.

You know, you ought
to go back inside.

They could probably get
their hands on you out here.

Not with you here.

Well, I'm just one man.

More like 20.

was a good sheriff.

Yeah, he was.

Didn't like Jody much.

drift away and disappear.

Yeah, but I don't--

That way, we won't
lose you so easy.

Lose me?

No.

No, Mr. Potts. It's you
she's watching all the time.

I think she's admiring
your hair.

Make a great scalp
to go over her stove.

Why are you even here?

I mean,
if you hate it so much,
why are you even--

Listen, I've told you,
I'm my own salesman.

Own my own clothing company.
Make good money at it.

Looking to expand.
Looking for opportunity.

Well, I'm selling
some beef cattle.
You interested?

[chuckles]
Not a chance.

Besides, I don't work
with ranchers or farmers.

You have a wife?
Kids back home, Mr. Potts?

Absolutely not.
Wives spend too much money.

And they're always
wanting something.

Besides, when you're gone,

they spend every last penny
you worked hard to get.

Nope.

No wife, no kids.

How about you?

Yeah, we do.

Four boys and a girl.

Well, ain't you a peach.

That Mr. Potts would
sell me off if he could.

Don't worry.

Anyone talks bad to you,
I'll put salt in their pie.

- Only to people I like.

How long you been married?

Five years.

Uh, and no children.

A lot of men wanted me.

I did not like them.

How did you end up
with Mr. Rhyker?

Joe was trading
