Season VI, Chapter 7 Danger Bay—2012, Episode 6:

Cujo began to send wolves to Moosehead County—those who were of good character, regardless of their markings and Ringo began to build his wolvenpack.

From Friday:

Just as Susie was having those anticipatory thoughts, an old Chevy pick-up drove up her driveway and … out stepped a cowboy, “I hear you’re looking for some help.”

For once in her life—Susie was rendered speechless!
