Strong story points are weakened by several implausibles. Matt and Chester are returning an escaped killer (former song & dance man, Gene Nelson) to Dodge. Along the way, Matt's horse stumbles breaking Matt's leg in the process. Now Chester has to fetch Doc which will take a couple of days. Meanwhile, the trio has encountered a cavalry detachment in pursuit of a small Indian band that has jumped reservation.

Implausibles come from not securing Nelson in some way while Chester rides for help. Though armed with a gun, Matt's immobilized and can't be expected to keep Nelson captive for days. Why not tie him up, or failing that, shoot him in the leg. Anyway, I found this passage unusually improbable. There're some good location shots of long natural vistas that are uncommon to the early series. Though the meet-up with Blue Horse, an old friend, is another difficult swallow, it does lead to some interesting developments with the cavalry and the talkative Nelson. Nonetheless, a rather uneven episode in my book that could have been made memorable with more thought.
