Storyline

Favor and Rowdy are trailing some missing cattle when they lose their trail in a ghost town. A man Matt Lucas says he is alone in the town as a caretaker for the mine. As the men start to leave, they hear organ music leading them to two women who were seized from a stage coach ambush and held for ransom. The women (mother and daughter) are being helped by Ed Cory who had stayed to care for the church. The mother, who has never forgiven her husband for abandoning her for a saloon woman, has tried to turn her daughter Angie against men causing them to quarrel amongst themselves. Having only pistols to go against Lucas and his son Waldo's rifles they decide to try to sneak out that night. However, Angie decides to stay with Waldo who promised a new style of life. Favor and Rowdy capture Matt but Waldo threatens to kill Angie so they are forced to turn over Matt and their guns before they escape. They find their missing cattle and horses so Favor has Rowdy ride for help but he is hit. ... Written by chipe

one of the worst Rawhide episodes: boring, slow, implausible
24 January 2012 | by (Brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

I was beside myself watching this awful episode. The only thing good about it was the ghost town backdrop (with quaint old building signs) and Rowdy arguing with Wishbone over the biscuits.

**spoilers**

Since I like the series so much, I had to gird myself to sit through the whole wretched episode. Whew! It started out so boring as Gil and Rowdy went looking for some missing cattle. Then began the implausible (in every way) story about two women stagecoach passengers held as hostage in the middle of nowhere for a ransom. There is a lot of shooting, and the two bad guys can't hit Rowdy and Favor. Finally Rowdy is wounded, and the bad guys don't kill him; instead they imprison him. The younger woman is attracted to the younger bad guy, a real lout. .. ..... The worst part is when Rowdy and Favor give up their guns to the bad guy, who was pointing a gun at the worthless young girl -- a move that should have been certain death to them. Since Rowdy and Favor had the drop on the bad guys, Rowdy and Favor should have called his bluff and ordered the bad guys to leave without the girl. .... ..... Then Rowdy and Favor, without guns, somehow come out on top even though they are being chased by the two bad guys who have guns. I forgot to mention that in the middle of all of this, Favor and the old lady discuss how she mis-raised her child and repulsed her husband. Ugh The acting of the bad guy was pretty bad: he seemed nonplussed when his son died at the end. .
