Storyline

Matt Dillon and Kitty Russell are escorting a notorious outlaw back to Dodge City to stand trial. A member of another outlaw gang sees them traveling by stagecoach and switches out cotter pins on the yoke that keeps the stage tied to the horses. The pin obligingly breaks on a mountain road, causing a spectacular crash. Kitty crawls out unscathed and checks on Matt, who's unconscious but will be okay, and the outlaw -- who's comatose and dying. When she hears the outlaw gang approach, she takes Matt's Marshal's badge off his shirt and puts it on the outlaw, then spins a deceptive web for the gang, who believes her until the outlaw awakens and uses his last breaths to tell the gang what really happened. Most of the occasional-player cast of Dodge City is on hand for Kitty's later speech asking the citizens of Dodge to ransom Matt. Written by Peter Harris

A very nice start to season 13.
20 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Matt and Kitty are on vacation together when Matt spots a convict and arrests him. Like always Kitty is disappointed that her holiday is now ruined and they are on their way back to Dodge riding a stagecoach with a prisoner.

A gang of bandits sabotage the stage to rob the cash box. When the stagecoach breaks away from the horse team, the stage flips severely injuring the prisoner and knocking out Matt. When Kitty hears the bandits outside she removes the Marshal's badge from Matt's chest and places it on the prisoners.

After the prisoner dies it is not long before the bandits know they have the famous Marshal Dillon. The only chance of saving the Marshal's life is if the town of Dodge to pay ransom money. But there are no givens when it comes to these bandits.

Amanda Blake gives a very strong performance as she is in some very physical scenes during many parts of the show. Even though the ending was kind of odd- the story was strong and the action was entertaining. One of the best parts of the show was when Louie, the town drunk, ask to delivery the ransom money because he has no money to donate and Matt is his friend. A very nice start to season 13.
