We learn a bit of Kitty's past in this episode
26 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Matt meets a stranger, Cole Yankton, that claims he has been selling horses out west and is in Dodge for a few days. It seems that everyone is suspicious of Yankton except for Kitty. You see, Yankton is from New Orleans which is the same town where Kitty grew up. The story makes it appear that Kitty and Yankton use to be lovers many years ago.

As Yankton rides out of town, the suspicion from the townsfolk decrease. But when Kitty takes Matt to a near out of Dodge Mexican Cantina, the bank in Dodge gets robbed. And leading the bandits is Cole Yankton. It appears that Kitty led Matt out of town so he will be far away when the bank was hit. The bandits have a head start but Matt and Chester will eventually be on their trail.

This episode is one of the first that features Amanda Blake as the lead character. It was a different pace from the regular Matt takes on the bandits routine but with the thirty minute format there was little time to get into past relationships. Other than Ms Blake's performance nothing else is really stands out in this show. It was like many other episodes but this time taken from a view of a woman. And Kitty is all woman in this show.
