Suzanne Lloyd was the beauty- the script was the beast.
25 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode begins out on the prairie as we meet a father, James Horne, with his twenty-something year old daughter, Harriet, camped out by their wagon. As two men approach on horseback, James tells Harriet to hide in the bushes and not to say a word. Sure enough the two men, Ben Hoagler and Dan Scrop, are not friendly and end up shooting the father before riding off.

Harriet walks nearly forty miles to Dodge where she plots her revenge of the killers. Instead of telling the Marshal, she is going to work at the Long Branch until the men come in to drink and then give then a taste of revenge. But the two men are smarter than she thinks and could lead to more danger for the young Harriet.

This is a mildly interesting tale but really was not the most entertaining show of the lot. Suzanna Lloyd's beauty was the shows most notable part but there was not that much more to carry the program. The writers did try to give Chester some interest by making him smitten with the woman but it only last a few seconds on screen and would not be held over to another episode. Nothing wrong with the actors, it was the script that was weak.
