User Reviews

One of the better two part stories in the series.
26 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this conclusion of a two part episode, Doc and his lady companion, have been captured by a renegade group of bandits headed by an ex-confederate military officer. And Matt, Festus and Newly have penetrated the hideout by pretending to be gunrunners.

Matt will have to pretend to be a hard-nose criminal in order to convince the gang that he is on their side of the law. He will have to battle a suspicious group and also take on a man, in a knife fight, that wants to kill him.

Matt has a plan to get the five out of hideout put it will take planning and the help of diversions to get them all out without injury or death. But when a paralyzed gang member hears the plan it could jeopardizes everything.

Everything was set up nicely in part one making part two more action packed without relying on dialog to set up the scene. This is one of the two part shows that the first part should be watched before trying to understand the complete story. One of the better two part shows in the series. A complete western that is very hard to beat. Good show.
