[discussing Stace's dog]
Stace: Now take Mug back there. His tongue is hangin' out about a yard long. I can't understand that, either. It's the first time beer's ever given him a hangover.
Luke Perry: I'd hate to have him after me - even with a hangover.
Stace: He's very gentle, really. He'd eat right out of your hand.
Davey Kane: I bet he'd eat right out of your leg, too!

An entertaining episode from all angles.
10 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

In one of the series best shows, James Drury gives a great performance as a blind man out in the rural west with intentions of killing. Mr Drury plays a man named Stace that is known as great shooter even though he is totally blind. We learn that Stace robbed a business sometime back and was found guilty of the crime. He was sent to prison for many years. Stace was clinging to the hope that one day he will be release from prison and return to his girl, Della, who has the stolen money and he will marry her and live happily for the rest of their lives.

But things do not go as planned. While in prison Stace went blind. And after he was release from prison, he found out that his girl, Della (Ruta Lee) had married an older man and wants nothing to do with him. This does not set well with Stace. The only way he knows to get back with Della is to kill the man that she married.

Stace along with his eye-dog, is now riding the west looking for Della and her husband, Harmony Bell. Since Harmony plays the piano and Della sings, they have been traveling from town-to-town entertaining the saloons. They stay in a town until Stace makes an appearance and then they move on. This time they are at Outpost and Harmony is tired of running. The piano player, even at a poor disadvantage, will finally face the man that is gunning for him.

Even with this short review this episode seems enjoyable. But there is much more to this story that will make this episode one of the most entertaining situations the viewer has witnessed. The writer even found time to throw in some humor which has been lacking form the series. This is an episode that you have to watch to get the full effect. From beginning to the eventful ending, this episode was pleasing. One of the better shows in the series run.
