Once Again, An Out of the Wagon Train Loop Episode
18 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

Heather Mahoney (Jane Wyatt) wasn't even a passenger in the wagon train. She and her mother were in a runaway carriage and John McIntyre rode after them and stopped the horse. As soon as he and Mahoney gazed at one another, it was love at first sight.

McIntyre chose to leave the wagon train biz and went off to see Heather.

What then emerged was what became the usual formula, yet again; she has to convince him that he loves his work and she can't take him away from that.

Not a lot of depth or substance, as usual, but an interesting bit was a rival suitor's admission that he isn't the marrying kind and McIntyre is welcomed to Heather.

This was the last episode of Wagon Train on NBC, it seems, which clearly was paving the way for the show to end, with the wagon train troup disbanded.

Someone must have gotten word that the show was going to ABC, hence the final conclusion in all its glory.
