The following from the DVD release notes of Bonanza:

"One of the season's final episodes, "The Avenger, is essentially a showcase for guest star Vic Morrow as a man named Lassiter, whose heightened sense of justice was forged years earlier when his parents were lynched.

"The Avenger" was clearly intended as the pilot for a spin-off series, but nothing came of it; Morrow would have to wait two years before landing his own weekly program, 'Combat'."
