Suzanne Pleshette is the bright spot in this episode
22 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have never been a fan of Suzanne Pleshette -since I had mainly seen her on other TV series and never thought much of her acting ability. However, in this episode she is the person that makes this show interesting and watchable with her tough acting playing a character that a times is hard as nails and at other times showing her soft side. She was the bright spot in this episode.

The episode begins as Lewis Stark, a bounty hunter, comes up on an escape prisoner Adam Bramley. Instead of collecting his money for Adam's return, he instead takes Adam back to his father's ranch where he eyes a way of making more money.

John Bramley is the father but has a heart condition that has taken his toll on his health. Adam tells his father that he owes Stark $1000 and wants his father to pay him. John refuses causing an argument that resulted in another heart-attack for John.

The rest of the episode feature Ms Pleshette as Glory Bramley as she take control of the situation and brings some order to the Bramley farm. But with just a taste of money- Stark decides he wants more than what was first asked. And will John and Adam come to terms with their relationship as father and son?

This is not an episode that is top of anyone's list but a nice story with some good acting. A good watch for viewers.
