Oh, the wrath of a woman's scorn.
7 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This all begins when a neighbor of the Cartwright's are over for a welcoming party. The daughter of Jed Ferguson, Laurie, has returned home from attending school back east. Laurie, played by Lynn Loring, has grown into a beautiful woman and her father is so proud to have her back on his ranch. But something is not right with Laurie. It seems that she has a mental situation where she tries to play everyone into a sexual predator. She is a black widow that tries to take down every man in her path and on this night, she accuses Little Joe of assaulting her.

Needless to say this causes conflict between the Cartwrights and the Fergusons. But there is a bigger fish to fry as Laurie will work her magic on other men to get her will accomplished. And along the way, she keeps running back to her father telling him that she is an innocent victim. But things are going to get strange when her mental conditions deteriorates and turns on her father.

This actually turned out to be a enjoyable episode. I have never been a fan of Lynn Loring and even in one review stated she should never work again. But she may had found a niche playing wicked mentally disturbed parts that kind of goes with her nature. She does an outstanding job in this project. And we will learn that she has been fed lies by her grandmother back east. It did end in a rather awkward performance by Michael Landon but did little to lessen the entertainment value. Good watch!
