Nearly unconscious, two men walk up and deciding that he won't make it, take his horse, guns and money and ride off. He staggers to the nearest town only to discover that the information he gathered about these men could apply to most of the town. Now how will get back his property. Written by
Paladin is robbed of $2,500 by two unknown men following a puma attack. Now he scours the nearest town for the culprits and his money.
Average episode, at best. The screenplay never generates needed suspense or tension, coming across instead as rather muddled in development. Perhaps the most interesting feature is the puma attack. It's not shown. Instead, we segue from Paladin on a horse to flat on his back and being robbed. So we wonder what happened and only find out later. Perhaps the producers lacked a stock shot of a big cat attack and staging one was too expensive. Anyway, our knight- without-armor goes through the rest of the entry with a shredded shirt and a load of mad. In the acting department, Moreland makes a rather poignant impression as the sympathetic saloon girl. Otherwise, it's a forgettable episode.
