This time - a woman gets all she deserves
15 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode that has a 'what goes around comes around' theme, we get a good story where a woman's plan backfires leaving her holding the bag of goodies. A nice story that had an ironic ending.

The story begins as Hector and Edna Lowell awake to someone outside using their water pump. It just so happens that the man is Orval Bass which is the husband of Edna that she claimed had died years ago. Orval had been in prison for seven years for killing a man that was seeing Edna and now is out wanting to claim his farm back. Edna said that Orval had signed all the property rights over to her when he went to prison and he has no claim on the property. With Judge Brookins coming in a few days, Orval plans to have a hearing on the claim since he cannot read and did not know what he was signing.

Orval also has a son when he was married to Edna named Ethan. Edna tells Orval that he has taking the last name of Lowell and that he is not welcomed. She even tries to get Hector to shoot Orval for trespassing saying that she will back him up for the killing. But since Orval is not armed Hector refuses much to the dislike of Edna.

Little does either men know but Edna comes across this traveling salesman named Joe Frisbie that she wants to run away with. So she and Ethan plot a plan where they will get Hector and Orval upset at each other and there will be a shoot-out. Which ever wins the gunfight the other will be sent to prison and she will be free to go with Frisbie to St. Louis.

However her scheme does not go as planned. Frisbie is just using her to have a good time and wants nothing of marriage. She will find out too late that she was the one that was being used instead of the other way around. It will cost her more than she ever thought.

The ending of the show was almost comical and even ironic as the woman plotting against everyone is the one being plotting against. A nice story with excellent acting. A show that kept me interesting to the end.
