Eight “Minutes” to Die

I thought it would be neat to have a place to discuss "The Rifleman" episodes. If there is an episode you wish to discuss in length, please feel free to post it here.

Eight “Minutes” to Die

Post by Morgan » Sat Jan 12, 2019 4:16 am

At the end of “Eight Hours to Die”, the judge shoots a rattler. While Lucas is in the middle of strangling the judge, Mark runs up holding the rattler by the end of the tail. Had that been an actual snake, Mark probably would’ve ended up dead. Just like a chicken will run around with its head cut off, a rattler will go crazy AND STILL BITE even after its dead. So goodbye Mark and the rest of The Rifleman. :confusedcowboy:

:surprisedcowboy: Oh my! That would have been terrible!

It looks like the Judge shot off the head.

He sure was a good shot. We can be thankful for that. :sillycowboy:

It's a good thing the Judge had a change of heart about killing Mark, or this would have been a way out for him, even though he did kidnap Mark. I don't know how anyone can intentionally kill anyone, especially a child.
