A claustrophobic episode
9 December 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Other than the four regulars, only guest cast members Jack Kelly playing an outlaw on the run and his daughter Gina Gillespie are the only members of the cast in this episode. Most of the action takes place within Kelly's home where he's wounded.

The Rangers are after him, but so is the gang he ran with because he absconded with the loot after overhearing they were going to do him out of his share presuming he died. He wanted it to go to Gina Gillespie.

Gillespie is one spitfire juvenile who can take care of herself. The three cast members with Kelly and Gillespie are besieged in the house the Morgan gang trying to take them any way they can.

Even in a life or death situation the same clowning these Rangers always do is present here. Wouldn't know a Laredo episode without it.
