Audra falls for a young cowboy that has other intentions, 23 January 2013
Author: kfo9494 from United States

The episode begins when Audra is watching some cowboys round up some wild horses. When the horses stampede toward Audra, a man named Lloyd Gardner saves her life. Audra is smitten with the young Lloyd and the viewer can tell that Lloyd returns the look.

But there is something sinister going on around Stockton. Farmers are being harassed for protection money from bandits. The farmers have to pay protection money or face their farms burning to the ground. And it just happens that the arrival of the bandits happened just about the same time as Lloyd made an appearance on the scene.

It will not be long before the Barkley boys suspect the worse. But Audra will be harder to convince when she goes out to see Lloyd to make sure about all the talk. The ride Audra makes may be her last ride of the show.

Linda Evans is a looker in this episode with her flawless features and beautiful looks. However even with the good eye-candy plus the fine acting from the guest cast- this show was slow in developing. The plot was known real early in the show and the rest of the time was getting us viewers to the final scenes. But with that said it still was a good watch for viewers.

PS- One nice thing is to see Buck Taylor before he joined the cast of 'Gunsmoke' as Newly.
