Even with the quickie ending- the story held its on
22 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every time I see Jeanne Cooper I am more impressed with her than ever. She has been on many shows in the 60's and each performance is a winner. This performance is no different.

Leo Pitts has just been released from prison after serving five years for robbery. He is taking his, less than thrilled, wife Lily (Jeanne Cooper) out to their old shack they had before he was sent off. When they get there, Leo removes an stone from the fireplace and brings out some hidden gold from his robbery for them to live. Lily is now thrilled with the gold but all the viewers can tell that Lily does not want to be tied down to Leo.

Leo places the money in the bank which is a concern for the entire town. Matt is notified and thinks he will ride to Larned and talk with Judge Brookins about the legality of the gold. But in the meantime, Leo has purchased a gun. He is after Matt for placing him in jail five years ago and now wants revenge.

As Matt is riding he becomes sick with a fever. He stops at an abandon house and sleeps for two days. Upon awaking he finds Leo Pitts dead and he cannot remember what happened. His gun has been fired twice and Leo is not wearing a gun. It does not look good for Matt.

It will only be after Matt returns to Dodge that pieces of the puzzle get placed. With Lily making advances toward Matt and Leo's brother coming in to revenge his death, Matt will have his hands full. But by the end all will be explained.

With such as good story the ending was somewhat disappointing. The writer tied all loose ends in about two minutes so there really was not much of a exciting finish. Other than the ending, I found this to be an excellent story and an interesting watch.
