While hitchhiking, The Shield stops a member of The King of The Hills from stealing some fuel from a gas station. When he arrives at Millie's house, his father is there, so he leaves. A bunch of punks get stopped by an old man. They threaten to get even with his cousin, Dusty. Joe spends the night in a shed, and is found by Dusty. Dusty used to be the original Shield's side-kick, but is now old and forgetful. Joe saves Dusty from the punks, but they come back the next day and beat him badly. The Shield tracks them down and stops them.
