Barbara Stanwyck is in full form in this strange episode.
16 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Victoria and Audra arrive in a town that is in full celebration. This is a cattle town and cattle-buyers are in town paying top dollar. The two women check into the hotel and with one women in each room. When Victoria awakes from a nap she goes to check on Audra. When she enters her room there is no sign of anyone being in the room. When Victoria asked the hotel clerk about Audra, he states that she arrived alone.

This set off a series of strange events where everyone in town claims to have never seen Audra. Only one older sheriff believes some of what Victoria is telling. All the others are hiding something which leaves Victoria alone trying to find Audra.

Barbara Stanwyck's performance had a wide range of emotions. From weak to insane. I thought she played her part well as the entire story focused on her character, as a mother, losing her child. But it was the ending that caused problems for this episode.

Without giving the poor ending away, from the beginning we all knew that the town actually was holding Audra. But wait till you find out the reason Audra is being held and why Victoria was not told.. After such a good seven-eighths of the show, the ending had much to be desired. But it was a show that was interesting the entire time.
