Storyline

With ten days left to reach Sacramento, missionary Abigail Newkirk loses her driver to the higher paying mines. While in town trying to find her driver, she meets Sam Livingston who tries to help her. Sam has a pet pig, Endicott who he introduces to Abigail while telling her part of his history. That night still unable to find a driver, Abigail's prayers are answered when Sam and his friend Cass Fleming arrive offering to drive her as both have made the trip before. Cass owns part of a bank that was in financial trouble until Sam put up the money to bail it out now owning the controlling interest. Cass is running for US Senator in California. As they travel to Sacramento, Sam frequently has the wagon stop so he can reminisce about events in the past. Most involve the rough treatment he received as a sixteen year old from Cass and his friends. He lost his horse, was forced to work at gunpoint, and had one of the biggest gold claims stolen from him. Cass's plans for the bank and senate ... Written by Znonymous

The Quality Of Mercy in 49ers
2 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Despite what the Bard said, The quality of mercy is definitely strained for Charles Drake. Both he and an associate Onslow Stevens sign on as drivers for missionary Barbara Eiler on a last leg of the Wagon Train's journey to Sacramento. Both are wealthy men, Stevens is a bank president and a candidate for State Senate. Drake is even wealthier having come to California as a teen in 1849 as a kid with Stevens.

As the journey is made Eiler hears more and more about Stevens from Drake and how he was tormented and bullied by Stevens and the older men. Later on when he made his money in Montana Territory he hatched a scheme for revenge as calculating as anything the Count Of Monte Cristo formulated.

The Wagon Train regulars take a back seat to the guest performers in this episode as a man's soul might very well be in jeopardy.
