Festus is accused of stabbing a Cavalry Sergeant
22 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode begins while two privates are deserting from the US Cavalry after a battle. It just so happens that the two are captured by Sgt. Spear while trying to swim a river. Instead of turning the two over to the Major for court-martial, the Sergeant will keep the incident to himself but subject the two to the worse details of the day.

While the troops are in Dodge for an evening, the two privates know that Sgt Spear usually gets intoxicated and gets into a fight. So they think they can find a way to rid themselves of the Sergeant.

Sure enough Sgt Spears gets into a fight with Festus. During the end of the fight Festus gets knocked nearly out. That is when the two privates find a way to stab the sergeant making it look as if Festus is the suspect. Now Major Vanscoy is in town wanting Marshal Dillon to turn over Festus for charges.

I was expecting another episode that featured a rough Major trying to take over Matt's authority like has been played out many times. But this episode was a nice change from the regular leaving a very interesting and entertaining show. Victor French and Carroll O'Connor were nicely cast in this show that was a good watch.
