You are not sure how to feel- but you know you were entertained
12 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When the writer has the viewer unable to comprehend if they are suppose to feel sorrow or happiness when the show ends, then you know that you have a nice script. This is one of those where the ending makes you torn between two different emotions and the viewer is left to decide the feeling.

This episode begins when Matt and Festus find a dead body along a creek. They ride to the closest house which was suppose to be vacant. However a woman named Nora Brand advised that her husband had died and she move into the house. She has not seen or heard from anyone for months. After Matt and Festus leave a person comes out from the bedroom and they start kissing. Matt keeps searching for the identity of the dead man.

Later back in Dodge, Millie Scott comes riding into town with her six small boys. She asks Matt if he has seen her husband Roy. Roy has been gone over a month leaving the family nearly starving. Matt advises Millie that he will look for him.

Roy Scott was known as a woman's man and Matt goes to the Long Branch to talk with a saloon girl, that was sweet on Roy, named Gert. Gert does not want to tell about Roy in front of her new and jealous cowboy so later, at night, she tells Matt that Roy is with another woman but she does not know who or where.

Matt gets a lead on Roy when Harper Pruitt comes to town and advises that Roy had worked for him and had stolen money and an appaloosa horse. Matt remembers seeing an horse at Norma Brand's house.

Before Matt arrives at Norma's house, she had already told Roy to leave. Roy rides into town and goes to the Long Branch. Gert thinks Roy has come back to her but the jealous husband has other intentions for Roy. ---And all the time the viewer can do nothing but think of the wife home along with six small boys.

A very good show with mix results. When the closing credit roll you are not sure how to feel. But you know you where entertained.
