A nice Ted Post directed episode.
17 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Slim, and other employees, have a meeting in with a big-wig in the Overland coach company. Daisy rides along with Slim and plans to spend the night at the hotel.

Allan Winters is the district manager that is hosting the meeting and has big plans for the district in expanding the company's mark in the west. But Winters also had a dark side. He is seeing, behind the back of his wife, a saloon girl named Carla Morton. When Carla threatens to make their affair public, this will mean the end of Winters' job. Winters is seeing Carla that evening at her hotel room. In the room, Winters and Carla get into a shoving match. Carla hits her head and is dazed. Winters decides to take care of the his predicament and he murders Carla. Then he plants evidence on the town drunk. Soon the drunk is arrest for the murder.

But little does Winters know that Daisy has seen him coming out of Carla's room right at the time of the murder. But because of Mr Winters stand in the community, people find that hard to believe. Winters just might have to get rid of the only person that could send him to prison.

Enjoyed the story and thought the concept of the plot was entertaining. However, I was just not impressed with Spring Byington's performance in this episode. She played the character with all the sweetness and innocents that her acting is so well known. This plot needed a much stronger woman and not someone's naive granny that cannot see what is happening right in front of her. I like Ms Byington but in her entire run on this show, she seemed out-of-place.
