While riding Betsy and Randy find a cave with $1000 and a skeleton. A man going by Johnny Kane arrives at Shiloh looking for work. In reality he is Randy's older brother who Randy has not seen since he was very young. Johnny is wanted by the law but tells Randy he is innocent. He has a girl friend who sings at the saloon. A government investigator, Duggan, arrives telling the sheriff and The Virginian there is another $250,000 in negotiable bonds to be found on Shiloh. The money is loot from a bank in the old CSA. He pretends to be surveying while searching the ranch. Johnny, thinking Duggan is after him, has his girl friend help learn what Duggan is after. Johnny then decides to go after the money. Steve returns from a trip to Texas with a wanted poster identifying Johnny and why he is wanted. Johnny follows Duggan abandoning Randy. Randy trails Johnny to where Duggan has found the cash and been killed by Johnny. The Virginian goes there, too, when Johnny and Randy cannot be found. ... Written by Anonymous

Strong ending to season
17 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Season two ends with full-blooded story, ably directed by William Witney, that adds a tinge of sadness to inevitable victory of good over evil. Drama spotlights curly-haired Adonis Jeremy Slate, one of those attractive players, like George Reeves, who always seemed a step away from major stardom but never got there. Slate nails his challenging role as a smiling sociopath who lies to his kinsman Randy about everything except his honest affection for him. There's also a nice part for amiable former singing cowboy Dick Foran, who stopped several times for gigs on "The Virginian" on his long, winding journey up and down the show-biz trail.
