When I saw that Eileen Heckart was in this episode I was excited. From the time of my childhood I have always liked her acting ability and thought she was entertaining. However before the first commercial break I was ready to turn the channel to something more interesting. But I continued hoping that it had to get better before approaching the ending of the show.
An eastern missionary teacher is to arrive near Dodge and Festus is to meet him, with supplies, as he makes his way many miles from Dodge to beginning teaching. Much to Festus surprise when the person arrives it is a woman named Athena Royce. And when Festus tells Ms Royce that it will take two weeks to get to her destination he feels led to accompany her. (Why Festus can take two weeks off to help this one person is beyond me)
Anyway they encounter a group of hillbillies set on taking all there supplies. And with Ms Royce being so naive, she cannot see that they mean harm to her and Festus. And so the story continues as Ms Royce begins accepting that the hillbillies is not an innocent as she first thought.
There was little to this episode. Even with the writers trying their best to inject humor in some of the scenes - it just did not play well. The final scene was humorous but that was about all that even stirred interest. Not one of the better shows.
