Well played plot centered around a young beautiful woman
8 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young beautiful woman named Rena Decker rides a stage into Dodge with Matt and Chester. Matt sees that the young woman is vulnerable and has already stopped a man that was getting fresh with her. So Matt take the young girl under his wing and tries to get her a job at the Long Branch.

But when Kitty tells Matt that something is not right with the woman, it makes the entire Marshal's office laugh. The girl is too nice and good looking to cause any trouble in Dodge. Kitty goes ahead and hires the woman and it only takes a few minutes before Rena makes a liar out of someone.

A different plot that centers around a young woman entering the rough town of Dodge. With some fine acting and creative writing, this show was interesting throughout. Good show.
