When Chester is left alone to die...he is lying on a saddle. We next see him on the horse left hidden for him riding bareback. Obviously his head wound was worse than thought if he forgot the saddle. See more »

A very nice ending that was preluded by too much fluff.
17 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those episodes that after watching I wanted to like the show and also respond so in the review. However after watching again, my first opinion of the show was correct. A nice ending with way too much uninteresting fluff throughout the remaining parts.

Chester is capture by a gang of bandits and brought into their camp. Because Chester had killed one of their men the leader of the group decides to wait till morning (odd) to kill Chester. That is enough time for one of the women in camp, Chavela, to befriend Chester and help him escape if he agrees to take her with him. Looking at death, Chester agrees to take her.

This is where the story gets long as Chester and the woman roam around the prairie for days hoping not to be found. The viewer begins to lose interest as this part of the show seemed to drag on too long. So they throw in a small fight scene hoping to reel the viewer back into promise but the entertainment value had waned.

Even though the ending of the show was very well done by writers and cast- getting to that point was too long. Dennis Weaver was again superb as the naive Chester Goode but there was just not enough material to hold the viewers interest. Weaver saved the show enough to keep it from being an all-out dud.
