Goofs

Matt claims Ben tried to draw from an empty holster to draw fire from the man in the hayloft, and by so doing saved Matt's life. Since Ben was used to using a gun and normally carried one, his natural inclination would be to try and draw. As such, it wasn't that Ben saved Matt's life, it was that the man in the hayloft was a bad shot. See more »

Matt resigns rather than arrest someone that saved his life
13 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Honey Dare, her working name, is a new lady working at the Long Branch that is married to a cad of a husband named Hal Briggs. Hal is the kind of husband who is a gambler and a woman beater but for some reason Honey stays with him.

Later, an old friend of Marshal Dillon, Ben Stack, rides into Dodge and finds his way to the saloon. There he sits with Honey and the two seem to have a wonderful time. After Matt arrives, Ben says his good-by to Honey and talks with Matt about old times.

When he goes to the Dodge house he finds that he cannot sleep. Without anyone noticing, he leaves the hotel where he meet Honey and husband Hal walking down the road. Some words are exchanged then Hal takes off his jacket to fight Ben. Ben thinks Hal, who happens to be unarmed, is going for a gun and shoots him dead. Honey tells him to run away.

During Matt's investigation of the shooting a cowpoke, for an earlier problem, tries to take a shot at the Marshal. Ben intervenes and gets shot in the process. Ben drew the fire which in turned saved Matt's life.

Because of a certain visual moment at the Long Branch, Matt finally pieces together that Ben, his friend, is the actually murderer. Matt feels like he cannot arrest the person that saved his life and sends an resignation letter to Washington. Matt will resign rather than arrest his friend.

The show was really not that bad but it just did not have the interest that other shows possess. The story was slow to develop and by the end the situation that lead to Matt finding out about his friend seemed almost comical. Not to say this was a bad show-- just that the interest in the show was not has high as others in the season ten year.
