A woman manipulates the relationship between two brothers.
3 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode we have two brothers, Pinto and Curly Renner, that live on a farm their father left them. Pinto, being the older brother, has always kind of protected the younger Curly but now that Curly has meet a woman, Karen Dean, he has been wanting to prove that he is a man around the farm. When Curly gets back from selling a herd of cattle he refuses to give the money to Pinto saying that he will take care of the bills. Now there is a feud-like difference between the two brothers and Karen is right in the middle stirring the pot.

It will all come to a head when Curly and Karen decide to run away together taking the money with them. In the stable the two brothers meet but only one will be seen leaving the area. Matt will make a trip to a nearby town to bring one of the brothers, in the company of the Jezebel, to justice.

This was a nice story but left much about the brothers relationship untapped. It mainly centered around the young dance-hall girl, Karen, and the way she uses people to get what she thinks she deserves. With such as serious manner being discussed, the filler part where Festus gambles with Doc's dollar seemed way out of place in this episode. It took away from a serious drama and tried to insert some lighthearted humor that just did not help the show in the least. There is nothing wrong with the story it just left so much interesting material, about the brothers, untouched.
