When a defiant young brave and his mother turn up at a wagon train stop, the town's female boss won't release needed provisions, to keep the caravan at a standstill. Nothing about the situation is as it seems, including that the mother's hiding a knife to murder the town's most prominent citizen. Wagonmaster Christopher Hale is caught between getting his wagons rolling, keeping his men and the brave from killing each other, and satisfying the town's woman boss one way or another.

Too much has passed
31 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Season 7 kicks off with John McIntire ready to get his Wagon Train moving and also to see what that new scout he's hired is made of. This was also Robert Fuller's debut in the role of Cooper Smith.

Old friend and freighting outfit owner Barbara Stanwyck is holding up the Wagon Train by withholding their supplies because she needs McIntire's help. Two white captives have come to town and she's got her hands full keeping the town from lynching them. Carolyn Jones sadly remembers when she was a wife to Ray Danton and a mother and vows to kill Danton for deserting her and leaving her to be captured. The boy she raised played by Fabian has known nothing but Comanche ways and has a difficult time adapting to white society.

It's a nice story, but personally I have my doubts whether Danton and Jones could ever make a second try at marriage, too much has passed between them.

As for Fabian maybe he can adjust, but it will take time and patience for those around him.

Interestingly enough Barbara Stanwyck played a mother with a small child who escaped Indian captivity in Trooper Hook. And Fabian appeared with cast member Michael Burns in Mr. Hobbs Takes A Vacation with Jimmy Stewart a few years before.

Barbara Stanwyck's character was introduced here, later on she would have an episode to herself in the season.

A lot of familiar faces kick off Wagon Train's 7th season in grand style.
