Storyline

Dr. Mike sees that the marriage of Kid Cole and Sister Ruth is unraveling and the couple is heading for divorce for no apparent reason. Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash reprise their roles as Kid Cole and Sister Ruth. When Cole and his wife stop to see Dr. Mike while escorting mail-order brides to San Francisco, Dr. Mike immediately feels the tension in the air between them. She then learns that Cole is terminally ill and, in an attempt to spare Ruth the agony of watching him die, has created problems in their relationship so Ruth won't feel obligated to care for him. Ruth, meanwhile, is devastated at her husband's behavior and talk of divorce and seeks Dr. Mike's advice.

Cash and June Carter in fine performances ......
1 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Johnny Cash appears here in his last episode as the dying ex-gunfighter, Kid Cole. June Carter Cash also appears in a strong performance as the woman of faith, a role that mirrored her own deep beliefs.

Cash brought a dignity and realism to this character that was very refreshing. His role here as the troubled Kid Cole reminds us all that life is a transition process that never ends. It is never too late to change or learn from past mistakes.

This episode seemed , in many ways,to mirror the life of Cash and June Carter ...... with ups & downs and ultimate triumph. Don't miss this one. This is TV at its finest!
