Brilliant and wonderful
6 January 2015 | by (Bellevue, WA) – See all my reviews

It seems like when the Virginian, or any character is away from Shiloh, the episodes are more thrilling.

The pace of this, and the tension building up, because of the evil sheriff, makes this great. The Chinese lady, was brilliant in her acting, and for those of us knowledgeable about western history, there were often relationships with Chinese. She was tender, full of wisdom, and it actually worked well with Trampas.

I thought they should have described the outcome with the sheriff better, but overall a fine episode, and a plug for herbal medicine, which is good.
