'Nothing worse than a crusading female'
8 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Those are close to the words spoken by Doc Adams and in this case I have to agree. There is much going on in this episode that could have made this one of the better shows in the season but one obnoxious character and a surreal ending left a bad taste in ones mouth about the entire show.

In all takes place on a special train heading to Dodge with Matt, Doc and a mildly wounded prisoner by the name of Johnny August. The train was not suppose to have any more passengers but a bridge fire caused the stagecoach not to run and when they make their first stop a slew of people board. And you can guess some of the people are friends of Johnny August (I find that name amusing) that are set on freeing their friend.

Also aboard the train is a high and mighty female that use to be in charge of the prison reform committee in Chicago. For some reason she sticks her nose into the affairs of Johnny August and thinks Marshal Dillon is abusing his powers. Not only does Matt have to deal with trying to make Dodge now he has a rude female that thinks she knows more than anyone else. It's a tough train ride.

The story was not bad but the part of the female, played by Joanne Linville, was like rubbing salt in a wound. You know it is sad when you hope her character gets mortally wounded by a stray bullet bring an end to objectionable person. But that did not happen and instead we get a closing scene that will make even the most avid fan of the series nauseous.
