Storyline

Benson and his boy, Healey, kill Mr. and Mrs. Dawson and take over the toll road and home they own. Upon arriving back from a cattle drive, Davey, who's in love with the Dawson's daughter Ellen, rides into Santa Fe and tells Sam about the couple's disappearance. Sam is upset when he finds Ellen Dawson inside the house with Benson and Healey. He becomes even more upset when Healey declares she is now his wife. Benson tells Sam that if anyone tries to open the gate to the toll road they will be shot. Sam informs Coleman and his boys about this, but when Davey sees Ellen come out to fetch water he becomes enraged and goes to get her. Sam has no choice but to shoot Davey before he gets himself killed by Benson. But this is only the beginning. Written by Michelle

Another Excellent Episode!
8 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Again I ask...Why did this show only last a season? This is a wonderful show! Paul Fix was playing Micah at the time on "The Rifleman," but he wasn't too busy to go to TR spin off. I'm glad he did. He did a wonderful job. I don't know if I was imagining things or not, but there were a couple places where he looked like he was in Micah's character and held his arm sort of limp...

Bert Freed, of course, is always a great bad guy. Richard Rust was also on The Rifleman. He played a good guy on there, but in this episode he was purely evil! Sam did nice to leave him among the living!

I was disappointed that the man who played Mr. Coleman at the beginning was not credited. Does anyone know who this actor is?

I must again give this episode a ten!
