"Reunion '78" is definitely one of my very favorite TV episodes from "Gunsmoke's" first season (1956).
This one's story of escalating tension builds very nicely into a suspenseful "courtroom-drama" climax where the angry citizens of Dodge City finally find out the real story behind the tragic shooting of chummy hardware drummer, Andy Culley.
"Reunion '78" is certainly full of powerful emotional conflict, past resentments, and the uncovering of a deep, dark secret from former times that eventually comes to light to the great relief of those involved.
