Festus and Newly commandeer the wagon the gang will use the haul the gold away. Sinclair and most of the gang give chase on foot; the wagon cannot move fast because of the weight of its load.

Meanwhile, the back story of various passengers unfolds, including a priest who doubts his faith. Written by Bill Koenig

The saga continues in part 2 of 3.
1 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is part two of a three part episode. > From part one we learned all the characters and their intended deeds. We know that some bandits, lead by Jack Sinclair, are robbing the train that has a critically wounded Marshal Dillon laying in the back train car.

In this part the bandits have found Matt but Doc gives them a false name and tells them that he is dead. -- The woman prisoner being taken to Denver, Beth Tilton, knows that the name is false because she saw Kitty with the Marshal and just may tell Sinclair that Marshal Dillon is really in the back of the train. But after Kitty gets through smacking Beth around, she may want to keep her mouth shut.-- Finally, after a distraction, Newly and Festus are able to drive away with the wagon filled with gold and take all the horses belonging to the bandits. But with a heavy load of gold it will be 'slow go' as the bandits are trying to catch up to the stolen wagon.

With Matt losing feeling in his legs it looks like part three cannot get here quick enough.
