This episode started with a nice concept but then went into the world of the bizarre when someone in the cast shoots a man at very close range and then for some reason Matt sets the person free. It just did not make good sense as far as enforcement of law in Dodge City.
Anyway the story is centered around a newly married couple, Cam and Tilda Durbin, that comes to Dodge as Cam has a job at the Long Branch dealing cards. Cam is an old friend of Matt's and he shows off his new wife to him.
Cam then hires a man named Lonnie Pike to help him at the Faro table. Lonnie is a vindictive person that dislikes Marshal Dillon. Lonnie tells Cam that Matt is courting his wife and the jealous streak runs wild. Cam advises his old friend, Matt, that he is going to kill him.
This is not a strong story. The ending is so unbelievable that it makes the entire show seem for naught. This seemed more like a Mother Goose fairy tale than written for a dramatic series. Not one of the better episodes.
