The Rangers are on stake out hoping to stop a bank robbery. They kill the robbers except for Wayne Emerson who they capture resulting in a big reward for the Rangers. Reese's enlistment in the Rangers is up the next day. He spends all of what is left after paying his debts on a parcel of Texas land from Conrad and Sally Fletcher who are really con artists. When they inspect the land, the Rangers find it is covered with water containing deadly alkali. Erik suspecting Reese might have been fleeced has traveled with the Fletchers posing as a Duke wanting to buy land. After hearing what happened to Reese, the other Rangers lock Reese with Emerson to allow Erik time to get Reese's money back and catch the Fletchers breaking the law - but not without several miscues.

Reese the man of property
12 December 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Shades of Gunga Din as Reese Bennett decides to become a man of property and leave the Rangers. And as in Gunga Din his buddies do their level best to stop him by hook or crook.

But for their 'last' job as a team the guys pull off a Dalton style capture of notorious outlaw Leo Gordon after killing all the other gang members during a robbery. They've got to take him to Laredo.

But before that Neville Brand who gets conned mercilessly every episode by his pals gets taken by an uncle and niece team of swindlers, Ahna Capri and Gene Raymond. They sell him a lot sight unseen which turns out to be an Alkali Lake.

So while Robert Wolders starts working his own con against the con artists, William Smith and Peter Brown try to get Leo Gordon back to Laredo and get Brand to re-enlist. Not unlike what Cary Grant and Victor McLaglen were doing to Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. in Gunga Din.

The two plot lines gel gloriously together for a very funny episode.
