A whirlwind romance blossoms between Jerry Cass and Long Branch hostess Bella Grant, but the situation is complicated by the sudden appearance of Jerry's opportunistic brother Brisco. The couple announce plans to marry, but Matt becomes suspicious when Jerry tells him that Bella has suddenly asked him to agree to leave the ranch that he recently inherited from his father for six months to try living in the East. Matt subsequently learns that Jerry had never actually seen his father's will, but that Brisco had obtained a copy from the bank. The Marshal deduces that Brisco and Bella may be working together and when he reads the will himself, a clause in the document heightens his suspicions. Matt calls the three parties together to disclose what he has learned and to force Brisco and Bella to reveal their partnership and their intentions, but an unexpected outcome awaits.

So Who Do I Trust
13 October 2012 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

The schemes fly fast and furious as saloon girl and her confederate try to gyp poor farmer Jerry out of his farm. It's a complicated series of maneuvers so you may need the proverbial scorecard, but it's a pretty inventive storyline from writer Meston.

Of course, the main interest now may be in seeing Ken Curtis in a very non-Festus, straight part. He's also very convincing, but I had to look twice to recognize him in a non-scruffy part. Episode also features a young James Drury several years before his long-running part on the Virginian. Though the action sometimes warrants a stretch, the excellent cast makes it work. All in all, a decent, if unremarkable, entry.
