Colly Vane/George Collins

Mark McCain was as important to the show as the Rifleman himself. Let's talk about his sweet nature and sensitivity. Always learning from Lucas, sometimes the hard way, fear of losing his only parent, times he got into trouble, their respect for each other, and how he was portrayed as a motherless kid but had the insight and determination of a disciplined adult.

Yet there is George Collins who lets people punch him out and never fights back. He is what Mark would consider a coward too yet he likes George. So I guess I don't understand why Mark seemed to hate Colly unless he thought he shot someone in the back. Of course Colly never did shoot him in the back he just shot first.

Lucas to Mark: "I love you more than anything else in the whole world."
