Ben And The Code Duello

In the last of the episodes dealing with the mothers of Adam, Hoss, and
Little Joe, Ben Cartwright while on a trip to New Orleans meets up with
Felicia Farr, widow of a man who was working on the Ponderosa and saved
his life. With his dying breath he asked Lorne Greene to look up his
mother and estranged wife in New Orleans.
He looks up mother Lilly Valenty a proud and haughty French aristocrat
and then the widow who has something of a reputation. It's in defending
that reputation that he's forced to do a number on another New Orleans
aristocrat, George Dolenz.
Unlike the story of Adam's mother whose story was told in one episode
and Hoss's mother who had a two part episode stretched out over a
different season, this story ends with Lorne Greene and Felicia Farr
promising marriage with him promising to take her back to the
Ponderosa. In the episode it is mentioned how she died, but Felicia
Farr never came back to film a second episode. Little Joe was born and
it is mentioned how his mother died as the story is told in flashback
like the other two.
There is mentioned however something that did provide the basis for
another future Bonanza episode, but I won't reveal.
