William Colton rides into an Inn one dark, rainy night. As soon as he goes inside, he realizes something is wrong. Maria announces that she and her father no longer run the place, the man behind him does. But Billy Ford doesn't run the Inn for long. He collapses with a terrible pain in his side. Colton thinks his illness is serious, and when he finds out a doctor is upstairs he goes to speak to the doctor. The doctor turns out to be a bitter surgeon who lost his hand when his horse spooked, causing a wagon accident and his hand to be severed by the wheel of a train. Colton delivers a fiery speech and begs the doctor to come look, though the doctor had already given his diagnosis: Appendicitas. Then Colton comes up with an idea: He'll do the surgery if the doctor will tell him what to do. Did he pull it off? Written by
There were two other actors in this episode that went uncredited. I'm not exactly sure why they weren't credited since their parts were quite significant.
I don't know either actor's name. The first uncredited actor was the father of Maria, and the owner of the inn. He spoke throughout the episode and was in almost every scene. In all rights, he should have been given as much credit as Joby Baker or Vivienne Ventura since his lines were just as much...
The other uncredited actor came at the very end. He was the gunfighter who rode in looking for Billy Ford. He had several lines as well...
If anyone knows who they are, they should add them to the IMDb as uncredited actors, or let me know. My address is: email@example.com.
Overall, this episode was okay. I don't know that this is too believable. I'm sure a lay person doing surgery like this would have been next to impossible...And I can't believe the man came in so easily to come down and help when he was so bitter.
Also, I must have totally missed the reason for the title being "The Oath."
