Dissatisfied with her life in the east, Doc's former nurse Abby (Scott) shows up in Dodge, renewing her friendship with Doc. Okay. But then a vengeance-seeking ex-con Konie (Hagen) arrives looking for Matt who sent him up five years earlier. Now Matt has to watch his back, that is, until he gets a telegram stating that Konie's broken parole. Now there's going to be a showdown, or is there.

Good involving plot, except the gunman (Fancher) episode seems an awkward action device that intrudes on an otherwise interesting dilemma for Matt. The story comes from series inspiration John Meston and carries two of his earmarks. Note the subtext having to do with the plight of women in the chauvinistic male world of the frontier. It's implied by both Abby and Kitty. Also, Meston works in a number of references to his hometown of Pueblo, CO, which is not far mileage-wise from Dodge, which may help explain his exceptional feel for the series material.
