A nice story to end season 9.
16 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

For the last show of season 9, we get a tale of three guys leaving their home in Missouri to make a life in California. You have two brothers named Adam and Cyrus and a friend named Boyd. They are totally out of money and making their way to Dodge to get jobs so they can continue their journey west.

While traveling in their wagon a young woman comes riding up on a horse with the usual greetings. Boyd spooks her horse making her fall and twisting her leg. Adam goes after the horse leaving Boyd and Cyrus with the girl. When Adam returns without the horse the two others tell him that they have already taken her home. Only later Adam, the wise one of the bunch, will be told that the woman died when she hit her head on a rock. Adam wants to return but Boyd beats him up forcing him to ride onward.

Quint comes up to their camp just for a visit and Boyd ties him up. Adam is able to prevent Boyd from killing him and they leave him on the prairie. Marshal Dillon had gotten word of the woman's murder and was in the area. He finds Quint and they make tracks for the wagon with the three men.

When they find the wagon, Boyd wants to shoot it out. Adam is able to wrestle him over the rifle where it accidentally discharges killing Boyd. Matt takes Adam in for assault on Quint with Cyrus being able to run away before capture.

At the jail, Adam tells Matt the entire story about Boyd killing the woman. Matt asks about Cyrus and Adam tells him that Cyrus is slow and could not have committed murder. Later Cyrus tries to break Adam out of jail but Adam puts a stop to it. The last scenes are Adam leaving the Marshal's office with his brother still in jail awaiting a hearing.

The story is nice, perhaps not as exciting as others but a decent story that holds up for the entire hour. The script was good, the acting good and was an interesting topic. A nice watch.
