An unexpected and entertaining episode.
20 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a rather unexpected but very entertaining episode that begins when Joe brings to the Ponderosa a young man, Tracy Blaine, that had actually saved Joe's life. But the young man seems all to perfect which always brings up red flags to Ben.

When Ben is shot in the leg by a stranger, played by Leo Gordon, before leaving the stranger hints around that he knows Tracy and that he is a wanted man. Tracy denies that he knows the stranger and actually overly hams-it-up trying to convince others that he is not a wanted man nor knows the stranger. But when others are out riding with a posse, Tracy is left alone with the injured Ben and the stranger returns.

Robert Drivas, that played Tracy Blaine, did an outstanding job of playing the two-faced character and makes the show more interesting. And always nice to see Leo Gordon play the tough. This was different, and enjoyable, from the normal stories that we seem to get from the ninth season of the Cartwrights. But the change made for an entertaining watch for the viewer.
