Virgil and Everett saddle up to sort things out but before they do the hard drinking, Beauregard Beauchamp arrives in Appaloosa with his Theatrical Extravaganza troupe and the promise of the best in lively entertainment west of the Mississippi.

As clouds over Appaloosa continue to gather, things get much worse for Cole and Hitch ..."--
