With the recent passing of James Drury, I revisited a flashback episode where we see how the mysterious "Virginian" came to Wyoming territory and became judge Garth's foreman at the Shiloh...first being mistaken as a hired gun in the employ of a neighboring rancher Peterson (Leif Erickson, later of High Chaparral) who's locked in a full blown range war with judge Garth...the Virginian actually does find himself in the employ of the rival rancher, but as a cowhand and not a fast gun...he finds a bloody and volatile situation where Peterson's ranch foreman (Michael Forrest, best known as "Apollo" in Star Trek) is plotting to take over the ranch by murdering Peterson and marrying his daughter (the radiant Mariette Hartley)...

The Virginian S2E19, The Drifter (Jan. 29, 1964)...my screen caps from the Timeless DVDs...

The Virginian S2E19, The Drifter (Jan.29, 1964) continued...the Virginian's origin story, at least back to the point where he found himself in the Wyoming territory during a bloody range war, ultimately ending up in the employ of judge Garth of the Shiloh Ranch...but not before he has yet another detour into tragedy and lost love...

Having rescued a wounded Virginian from near death, Judge Garth at one point tells him: "you talked a lot in your delirium. Nothing that I'll ever repeat, not even to you"....
