Now this is a western
19 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After a few shows that just did not live up to the western type era, this episode comes through with flying colors. It has all the characteristics of a great western when you have a stage, robbery, depot house, shooting and a woman right in the middle of the entire situation.

It begins when there is a hold-up of the Dodge stage and one of the passengers is shot for apparently no reason. The person holding up the stage tells the driver to alert Jessie Daggett, a person that runs the depot house on the trail, about the killings. The driver tells Matt that he believes that Daggett is somehow in on the robbery. This props Marshal Dillon and Chester to go out to the depot house and have a talk with Daggett.

Even to the viewers it appears that Daggett has something to do with the robberies when he is very hesitant to answer any of Marshal Dillon's question. It is not long before another stage coach shooting, that kills a woman, that we begin to learn more about the relationship between Daggett and the robber.

This episode was enjoyable. Classic western story with an underlining past connection to a situation that happened years ago. All-in-all this episode was a breath of fresh air that has been lacking from the few previous shows. Good watch.
