A lot of excellent material untouched in this episode
10 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Boone Shadler, a robber, is set for hanging at the state prison. A priest comes in to give him his last rites when Shadler knocks him out and escapes wearing the priest's robe.

In another part of Kansas, Newly is stopped by some people wearing sheriff badges and told the town that he was to enter has a breakout of the plague and he cannot enter. Newly does not like the way these men look and when he shows his Deputy Marshal badge the men try to jump him.

Newly gets away to a farmhouse where Shadler has just arrived. Newly, thinking Shadler is a priest and asks him to go with him so they can enter the town. This is fine with Shadler since he has money hidden in the small town. The rest of the episode deals with the sickness, Shadler's attempt to get to his money and the villains set on robbing the town.

The show was interesting in the approach of the town but could have concentrated more with the interesting people. However, with the fine actors and the and nice writing this show was at least interesting to the end. There was a lot of good material untouched in this show which would have made the episode much more enjoyable.
