Cheyenne is in Rio Hondo, Mexico. He owns a pair of wagons used to haul freight in the area although it is dangerous due to Mexican Revolutionaries fighting the Maximilian French. The stage arrives with a beautiful blonde, Mississippi, and a local hacienda owner, Bolados. Cheyenne follows them into the cantina. Boladas asks Mississippi to join him for dinner. After she leaves, Cheyenne confronts him. He owes Cheyenne for delivering breeding stock to his hacienda from the U.S. but skipped out on paying. He agrees to pay Cheyenne the next morning. That evening Cheyenne sees Mississippi take Bolados' wallet so he follows her upstairs. He learns Bolados had the money on him plus he is leaving the next morning. At the same time friends of the cantina owner Manuel plead with Cheyenne to help smuggle a man for them but he wants nothing to do with the local politics. Back in the cantina dining area Bolados is killed by a stray shot from the French trying to stop the revolutionaries before ... Written by Anonymous

I liked it.

I think Pete's review is harsh. In fact I enjoyed this episode very much thank you. This series is certainly no worse than the crap they have on TV that is current. As far as westerns go the plot lines are interesting and there is always a surprise. The character Cheyenne does not always do what one expects which makes it fun. I could go on blah blahing because the minimum number of lines for these posts demand it but I would consider that a waste of time and effort. Suffice it to say that Cheyenne is a series worth watching in my opinion despite being somewhat dated and not disgusting like most of current TV series and media.
