An average show about a greenhorn visiting Dodge and in comes trouble
12 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode begins as we see an buffalo hunter is taking a break from the hot sun on the prairie when his Appaloosa horse is spooked. About that time three Indians appear with a squaw. The hunter is killed in a particular odd manner which is only meant for someone that has committed a crime by Indian laws.

The next scene is a green young man walking along a path. The young man name is Jeb and is on an adventure into the city for the first time in his life. He comes across the Appaloosa with no saddle or no rider and after yelling for someone decides to take the horse as his own.

In Dodge he makes a friend with another young man named Ab. The two begin a friendship which leads to Jeb selling the horse to Ab. But it will not be long before a friend of the buffalo hunter comes to town and accuses Ab of stealing the horse from his friend. They get into a knife fight and Ab is killed.

Jeb tells Marshal Dillon the entire story of how he got the horse but that does not satisfy the other hunter. While Marshal Dillon rides out to talk with the Indians about the killing, Jeb's life remain in danger. Matt leaves Jeb with Quint in order to watch over him till he can get back.

Matt finally finds the reason for the buffalo hunter's death and the reason why the horse was left free on the prairie. But before Matt can return to Dodge, Quint has been stabbed and the other hunter is on the trail of Jeb. Will Jeb's first trip to a town be his last.

There really is nothing remarkable about this episode. A greenhorn visits a town and gets into trouble about sums the show up in just a few words. This is one of those episodes where it was not really good nor was it really poor. An average show at best.
