An entertaining episode to end the series for Amanda Blake.
15 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For the end of the 19th season, we get a story that would have made a nice closure of the entire series. Marshal Dillon is injured and believes that he is no use for the town of Dodge but then meets a person that is nearly in the same situation, but in a different way, that Matt feels placed. A wonderful story for a closure but the series is picked up again next year for another year to continue the saga of Dodge City.

In this entertaining episode, Matt is shot in the arm during a bank robbery and the injury will cause him to lose use of his 'gun hand' for a long period of time. Matt believes that he will only harm the town because every criminal, when they learn that Dillon is winged, will take their luck in killing the Marshal. Matt decides to resign and leave town.

Not telling anyone where he is going, Matt ends up of the prairie and happens up on, Lem Rawlings, that has deserted the Cavalry after an Indian massacre. Lem believes that he is no use to the fighting men because he refuses to kill just as Matt believes he is not use to the folks of Dodge. The two will stand together when the bank robbers find Matt and want to finish what they had started.

A very entertaining episode. The writing in this show looked fresh and may have been a part of giving the series one more year. With so many of the late episodes focusing on guest characters instead of the regular cast, this show was one that brought all the glory of the series back to the screen.

And with that said, a fond farewell to Amanda Blake that has been apart of the TV show since the beginning in 1955. Thanks for the memories, Ms Blake.
