Goofs

Early on, when Ben first appears, Adam asks why he wanted to see him. Ben tells him he wants him to talk a friend in to coming over - but in this close-up, not only can you tell Ben's dialogue has clearly been overdubbed, it's been done by a totally different actor. See more »

Main characters: Ross and Dalphine Marquette

Bonanza character: Adam

ames Coburn plays a man who's losing his mind. No longer is he the loving, devoted husband and friend. Instead, a monster is in his place

  • one who beats his wife, rustles cattle, and longs to kill his best


friend.

This is a good example of what happens when mental illness takes over a body. The episode ends tragic, and even though I'm not a big Adam fan, watching Adam break down like he does at the end brought tears to my eyes. This is a very moving episode.

It seems several died in this episode, though I didn't keep count (at least 6, possibly more)
