You feel sorry for someone getting exactly what they wanted.
13 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the episodes that after watching you just cannot believe what you witnessed. The ending was so over-the-top that you actually felt sorry for the person getting exactly what they wanted in life. When the show ended I felt cheated for pulling for the character the entire broadcast.

Ben Sommars is a good friend of Newly. Ben is one of those large teddy bears type people that the viewer can tell is naive about all things in life. He has been writing to a woman, Celia Madden, and now she is due in Dodge for a possible wedding. When Celia exits the stagecoach it is apparent that things are amiss. Celia is a small beautiful woman and Ben is a large hairy under-achiever.

And it is not long until we know the reason that Celia is being sweet on Ben. It will take Newly investigating her background to prove to the rest that things are not correct.

But by that time, Celia has left on the stagecoach taking Ben's money with her. Ben is able to catch the stage and will shell his own kind of justice out to the parties involved.

And then comes the ending. --- Sometimes you feel sorry for people that happens to make a mistake but you feel pity for people that choose a mistaken. The ending is a big mistake.
