Regular characters appearing in this episode:
Trampas, the Virginian, Clay Grainger, Stacey Grainger,
with a brief appearance by Elizabeth Grainger and Sheriff Ryker

In this story of friendship, Trampas is sentenced to be hanged
after falsely being accused of murdering a rancher's son over a
right-of-way dispute. While Clay Grainger desperately tries to get a stay
of execution and the Virginian and Stacey endeavor to find the real killer,
Trampas decides his only hope is to join his cell mate Luke Nichols (Jory),
who has taken a liking to the "Boy," and two other convicts in Luke's
master-minded prison break. (Another one of my personal favorites) (bj)

The sequel to this episode was 'Fox, Hound and The Widow McCloud'(7.25)
