Claude Akins makes the unique story enjoyable.
12 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode begins with a bank robber, Carl Miller, in jail at the Marshal's office. And now three men ride into town, Schroeder, Mogan and Tom Benton (Claude Akins) with a sinister plot of breaking the bank robber out of jail. The plan is that Tom is going to get arrested and provide a pistol to the prisoner and they will escape and split all the money from the bank robbery. But Tom runs into trouble when Lucas recognizes him as a former Captain while in the army.

Tom does manage to get arrested but much to his chagrin, Lucas bails him out. So he tells Lucas that he is secretly working for the government and needs to get back in the jail house to find the hidden loot. Lucas is too happy to oblige.

Without ruining the rest of the story just let me say that the viewer is caught right in the middle of the plot. Is Tom really working for the government or has he just hook-winked Lucas into helping with an escape of a criminal? It will all be revealed in the last part of the episode which includes some gun-play by many in the cast.

Entertaining episode.
