Storyline

In the second part Ranie and Col. Hillary join the wagon train. Ranie plans to leave later to join her sister and brother-in-law. Hillary tries to court Ranie but her interest is with Adams. Hillary tries to scare Adams away by telling Adams that his style is to take what he wants. Ranie rides with Bill and Emily Hawks who are close friends with Adams. Emily tries to help Seth in his attempt to woo Ranie but Ranie has a secret that she doesn't want Seth to know. She has a lung disease that is getting worse. When Ranie continues to spurn Hillary, he tries to take her in his arms and kiss her but Adams breaks it up. Hillary pushes the issue into a fight in which Seth almost kills Hillary. When the beaten Hillary pulls a gun, Hawkes is forced to shoot and kill Hillary. Seth tells Hawks he has decided to leave the train and marry Ranie - not knowing her secret. Written by Anonymous

The Major's lost love
28 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode of Wagon Train is the concluding episode of a two part flashback story telling of Ward Bond's one true love. The first part covered his Civil War service and the fact both he and Virginia Grey had timed events all wrong and lost their chance for marriage.

Now on one of his early trips west Bond is reunited with Grey as she joins the Train mid point in the trip. Her journey is to conclude in Arizona where Grey is to join her sister and her husband. But also she's now in bad health suffering from consumption which is what they called tuberculosis back then.

Also on the trip is Douglas Kennedy a quick tempered but at heart cowardly lout who sets his sights on Grey. Bond truly loses it with this loathsome character.

Ward Bond never exactly played romantic characters in his big screen career. So it was left to Wagon Train to bring out the romance in him in this story of his lost love.
