Laura Simmons, that works at the Long branch, has just been told by Marshal Dillon that a man named Philip Locke is looking for her. She tells the Marshal that she was engaged to Philip not long ago and that his family did not want them to marry due to her social status.
Philip Locke comes from a aristocratic family in Philadelphia and use to getting his way by paying people to do his dirty work. When Matt refuses to tell Philip where Laura is located, Philip hires a man to do some killing. The problem is that he hires a near retarded person to take care of his business.
This story sounded nice but did not resound to TV as well as expected. The characters just did not seem right for the show as the rich sooty person was too nice and the saloon girl too conservative. More energetic actors in this parts could have made this episode much more entertaining. Then thrown in the hired gunman as a half-wit mental patient and the characters just were not believable. This episode needs a recast.
