Dean Jones is a baby-faced military commander with a gung ho sargeant trying to find two deserters. Things progress with the sargeant to the point where he shoots John McIntyre (in the arm), kills three innocent indians and fights Robert Horton (who actually appears in this episode) over the water barrel.
Then there is a final showdown with the two deserters who are trying to turn themselves in.
Stands as an early Jones appearance, and Jones actually shows his capability, again as compared to all the extreme performing going on around him from the sargeant and the young girl smitten with one of the running soldiers.
Jones makes it all worthwhile, but in watching four episodes so far, I can't help but notice how these plots could just as easily be placed in a NY delicatessen or LA restaurant with a series of incoming and outgoing characters. There really seems to be very little Wagon Train to be seen.
