The story develops nicely and in unexpected directions, definitely one of John Dunkel's better screenplays. Slickster Dutch George (that fine actor Robert Middleton) turns up in the middle of the prairie and steals a horse from scrawny, boyish-looking MCQueen (Tom Pittman, in a sly performance). Turns out that George is an old friend of Matt's who knows George's reputation as a skilled horse thief. McQueen comes to Dillon for help and together they ride to where George is camped with his gang and a stolen herd. But before they reach there, McQueen vows personal vengeance on George and drives off Matt's and Chester's horses. Perhaps the kid is not as helpless as he appears. Excellently ironical ending, unusual for the series.

One real drawback-- the continuity of scenes at the camp is simply awful. The first shot is of California's scrubby hills, segue to a stock shot of sheer rock faces that have Arizona written all over them, and transition a moment later to a badly done sound stage shot, all within the span of maybe ten seconds. Rarely-- and it's a good thing-- was editing of an episode this egregiously clumsy.
