a less-dishonest portrayal of white/native relationships
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an outstanding episode. Contrary to another review, it makes perfect sense. We know from near the start who the "renegade white" is. There is nothing "abrupt" about the ending, as it grows logically out of everything that came before. (My only complaint is the clumsy way Matt is brought into contact with the Indians -- his horse stumbles, then he conveniently bumps his noggin on a large rock.)

My reason for giving 9 stars is that I was impressed with Matt's conversation with Wild Hog. (Yes, that's his name in the credits, though it sometimes sounds as if he's called Wild Hawk.) Throughout the series, "Gunsmoke" treats white/aboriginal relationships in an intelligent fashion, without apology or lecturing. Wild Hog is allowed to present his point of view without making him look like some sort of deranged savage, bent on killing everyone in sight. (This is one of the problems with the later "Chato".)
