The Pickett family is gathered around the table for Thanksgiving dinner when they’re interrupted by a telephone call. Poachers struck a nearby ranch, and a suspicious red truck was seen driving away. Before Joe leaves to investigate, Sheridan persuades him to let her tag along. After the two depart, Sheridan reveals her true intention: she is writing a school essay about her father.
