Variation on Conflict

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.

So while Lucas misses the cougar which could have killed Mark, Mark actually hits his target for the first time. Unfortunately he aims for Lou but hits a cougar. Lou's life is spared and all of North Fork hails him a hero except Howard.
