On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

Plot Overview

What starts out as a day filled with the hope of borrowing the needed money for buying pigs the Starett's will need to get through the winter turns out to be a day of truths. After Ryker threatens to burn down the winter wheat, it's suddenly stampeded by a herd of Ryker's cattle. Shane sees no other way for the family to survive except to take a job with a group of gunfighters he's worked with before. Marian begs him not to take the job. She doesn't want blood money.
