A former convicted safe-cracker returns to start life anew.
14 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have never been a big fan of Nehemiah Persoff but in this episode he plays a part that when the credits roll the viewer feels better for watching. This was a well written script and entertaining to watch.

Nehemiah Persoff plays Ben Rando, a former safe-cracker, that has just been released from prison after serving 12 years for robbery. He has returned to Dodge to try to set his life back in order and to get back with his former girlfriend, Carrie Thompson.

Time has not been good to Carrie as she has lived her life mainly as a saloon girl. When Ben returns she is none to happy with the crook trying to pick up where he left off 12 years ago. But Ben shows signs of reform as he gets a job at the freight office. (which is really strange since he was sent to prison for cracking the freight office safe)

Everything is going well until two bandits approach Ben with a plan of another safe robbery. Ben refuses to comply but the two bandits have a wanted poster that has Ben's picture. He will either help them open the safe or return to prison.

This episode turned out much better than expected. The script was tight and the actors held their own. One of the best parts about the episode is the closing scene. When you see Matt extremely uncomfortable after Kitty says something about marriage. Nice Watch.
