Portraits: He gets his photo taken by David Watkins (a traveling photographer) and almost doesn't show up for the town photo due to immigrants, minorities and men in confederate uniforms being allowed in it.
The Race: Loren is in charge of signing up for the race and refuses to let Dr. Mike enter due to being a woman. He also helps judge the pie-baking contest that Brian entered (Brian almost named the pie after him).
Sanctuary: Loren's sister-in-law, Dorothy, comes to him for sanctuary to escape her abusive husband. He was originally in love with Dorothy and had asked her to marry him when he was younger then settled for her sister when she refused. He is still in love with her despite the fact that she doesn't really feel the same. In the end of the episode, he lets her live with him and and gives her her own desk to make a town paper.
Giving Thanks: Both him and Jake's stuborness causes them to drive off the Indians' first offer to help the town with its drought problems. The two of them try to swipe some water from a creek despite Cloud Dancing's warning that it is diseased. After getting sick from the said water, him and Jake eventually swallow their pride and accept the Indian's help the second time.
The Circus: Loren reluctantly performs as a clown (along with Brian) at a traveling circus.
