Trapped by a flood with Dandy Jim Buckley, the Maverick brothers while away the time by explaining why they can't return to Texas. Soon after the Civil War, the boys return home and discover that the town's unscrupulous storekeeper is plotting to grab enough land in three counties to form a 5000 square mile ranch. When the Mavericks agree to lead a cattle drive for the storekeeper's principal rival, he frames them for murder. Now Bret must lead the herd across Comanche territory to Fort Adobe with the army in pursuit, while Bart searches for the only witness to the shootout. Written by David Bassler

Maverick: Trail West To Fury
22 May 2015 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

In "Trail West To Fury," the Maverick brothers and Dandy Jim Buckley wait out a flood. We learn why the brothers cannot return to their home town in Texas. They were framed for murders they did not commit. Bret and Bart became Indian fighters after the Civil War to stay out of prison. They are trail bosses on a cattle drive in this episode. I think the nature of the brothers' characters precluded the series from running longer than five seasons when Gunsmoke ran 20 and Bonanza 14. Bret and Bart were gamblers and while they were more interesting and more human than Matt Dillon, the Puritan TV audience would tolerate them only to a point. Roy Huggins' situational ethics ran its course.
