Before she was Valine Ewing on Dallas Joan Van Ark guest starred on this Bonanza episode as a stowaway in Dan Blocker's buckboard while he's in town for supplies. Van Ark is hiding and running away from James Olson who is her husband and whom she helped fake the death of. Although Olson could now get away clean he just won't leave without his wife. Something that Hoss Cartwright will get himself involved in.
Unlike other Bonanza episodes Joan Van Ark manages to live at the conclusion of the story. In this story where Dan Blocker is the primary Cartwright both Van Ark and Olson register well as a coldblooded killer and his frightened wife.
