2/21/64 "Follow the White Dove With the Broken Wing"
3 March 2016 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

The last serious episode and therefore the last good one. The boys stop in a bar for a drink and observe a fight between a troubled youth, (Lee Kinsolving), and a rival for a girl he imagines to be his girlfriend. He runs off and a popular local beat cop follows him to a warehouse where the policeman is fatally injured in an accident. The kid has been hurt as well and, having taken the officer's gun, he forces Tod and Linc to help him hide out and get him medical attention. While holding Linc hostage while Tod goes for some medical supplies, the kid tells Linc how he's been misunderstood all his life and how no one has ever reached out to try to understand him. LInc isn't sympathetic: he recognizes that the kid needs redirection more than sympathy.

Meanwhile the local neighborhood gang, who liked the cop, decides to take matters into their own hands and become a bigger threat than the police. They are led by a self-appointed avenger type who finds his power dissolving at the end when the gang finds out it was an accident and starts to see things from the young man's point of view. This is the best aspect of the episode: an examination of the irrationality of the mob mentality and the weakness of the bonds it creates.
