The story left too many loose ends.
23 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

During the first few minutes of the episode it look as though we were in for a heck of a show. However when the climax of the plot was revealed it was so overplayed that most of the real story was lost.

It begins when Johnny saves an old man, Sam, from some bandits and the old man asks Johnny to take him home to the city of Perdition. Upon arriving Johnny finds that the old man is unwanted. In fact they threw the old man out of town when he was seen taking valuables from the soldier's cemetery.

Johnny has just hours to get Sam out of town or the town may turn upon him. But for some reason the old man returns to the cemetery with a shovel to continue his unearthing of graves.

Even though this episode had the interest of the viewer, the ending played out without tying up all the loose ends. We left open the relationship of the old man with the town, the relationship between the old man and his daughter-in-law and the grandson. Felt like we were left in the dark on this one.
