Feeling of being trapped by obligations for two young people
2 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jenny Parker is set to arrive in Dodge by stagecoach. She has been in a convent school back east and is returning to live with her harsh father that over-protects Jenny from the outside world.

But before the 19 year old makes it into Dodge the stage is held up by a young man later be named as Will Jett. During the hold-up Willie pulls his scarf from over his face and kisses innocent Jenny. But the viewer could tell from the kiss that Jenny was more taken by the kiss that horrified.

When the stage arrives in Dodge the driver and shot-gun man could not agree on the description. And Pa Parker vowed to kill anyone that used force on his daughter.

When Willie Jett arrives in Dodge, Matt is suspicious that Willie is the criminal that held up the stage. Seems Mr Jett's father was a known outlaw and Willie wants to live up to the Jett name. But when Matt take Willie out to the Parker house so that Jenny can identify him- she says that she has never seen him before.

Later, after Pa had left the house, Willie returns to talk with Jenny. Now the true felling of each person comes out. Willie feels trapped by his father's name- and Jenny feels trapped by her father's actions. Both are wanting to be free of the obligations that each feel like the owe.

When Pa returns home, he knows that Willie has been to the house. He goes to Dodge to finds Willie and is set for a gunfight. With Pa counting down to shooting Willie- Willie is pleading with him not to draw. Will someone finally be free?

This is an episode that half the viewers will like and the rest dislike. For me the story was interesting but the characters were lacking. Jenny was written too shy and humble while Willie was written to green and harsh. The same plot with another set of characters would have worked better. But by its on merit it was worthy due to the great ending. An extra star for an ending that does not follow the norm.
