Little Joe is knocked unconscious and his horse is stolen by an outlaw. He wanders through the desert until he comes to a ghost town. He collapses in the street. When he comes to, finds himself being nursed back to health by a beautiful girl in Martinville, a quiet place full of friendly if mysterious townsfolk. After his recovery, Joe is surprised to be offered the position of Sheriff by the town's leaders. They tell him they need him to save them from a band of marauding outlaws. A woman attired in black warns Joe of the town's previous shameful betrayal of her husband, the town's previous sheriff. Still, Joe organizes resistance against the outlaws. In the end, Joe is forced to face the outlaws as the townsfolk grow increasingly diffident; and he is forced to come face to face with the final dark mystery of Martinville. Written by Charles Delacroix

Whas Little Joe Dreaming?
16 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode itself proves that souls 'cursed' have a lesson to learn. In any respects, the town had to learn courage, Little Joe had to teach that lesson in order for him and the town to 'grow up' on the path of life. I realize at the end, when Little Joe's love interest tried to tell him the truth of their existence it was all to late. Mrs O'Brien realized Little Joe was different, and he lead the town to courage which her husband had failed to do. Out in the desert, out in the wilderness, we have to truly appreciate the mysteries that happen along the way. Twilight Zone or not, this episode reflects our own mysteries of life. Why was the horse stolen and why did Little Joe go through this situation? That's really the big question I wanted to know, of Little Joe's adventures why this? Was he the chosen one for the redemption of this 'cursed' town? Perhaps! Little Joe had to grow up himself, and prove his worth to those 'trapped' as he is a man they can vouch for in the afterlife.
