Previously: Meanwhile—at the siege of Loco… The determined townsfolk were beginning to win their battle with the rest of the outlaws. Although relatively light—they had taken casualties: Phineas Miller, Attorney at Law and partner in the firm of Miller & Blot, had died of his wounds. Mrs. William Callahan had been wounded, but was expected to survive.
Among the hundred outlaws who surrounded Loco, some thirty were dead or severely wounded, and soon the survivors retreated into the desert.
They would eventually regroup with Jeremiah Smith at Indian Springs.
This, of course, gives our heroes the opportunity to get into more trouble.
I like that!
Season 9—Chapter 5—LOCO Part II!—Episode 2—They were gathered at Boomer and AJ’s place… “Hey wait—you’re here, AJ; who’s guarding the prisoners?”
“None other than Wyatt Earp, IV,” Andrew smiled broadly, “I asked Cujo to send him to cover a shift or two while we interview townsfolk for our open deputy position.”
“He’s not staying?” Chris’ disappointment showed.
“He can’t stay, he’s in the middle of a homicide investigation.”
“In Danger Bay?” Sarah was agast—murders simply DO NOT happen in Danger Bay.
“It happened just as we returned here, and he won’t say. We won’t find out until we return.”
“Oh, joy!” Chris exclaimed, “Regarding our hiring—we should try to hire two additional deputies.”
“DINNER!” Boomer loudly announced, “Table’s set—food hot—get in here or feel my wrath!”
Woodfire grilled Rib Eye steak and corn on-the-cob, baked potatoes, even a vegetarian-friendly casserole were on the menu as our heroes adjourned to the large table in the kitchen.
We’ll leave them to enjoy the well-earned feast as we check-out what Jeremiah Smith is up to—IF we can find him…
Somewhere to the trail to Indian Springs—Smith and Co. were in a very foul mood… “It’s all Spencer’s fault!”
“Why do you say that, Jeremiah?”
“He was sure they’d surrender—who ARE them marshals?”
