The forth wife?

Main characters: Jennifer Lane and Frank Milton.

Bonanza characters: They were all equally involved

The episode start off pretty good with a young woman announcing to the Cartwright brothers that she was their new step-mother. Then when Ben arrives home, it's discovered that she is not - she was tricked. But as she drags the family over to the town she claims to h ave been from, things go from bad to worst.

With Ben, Little Joe and Hoss in jail, it's up to Adam to catch the man who really killed the miner and convince Jennifer to convince the truth...
