Storyline

While resting, Flint is attacked by Ute Indians and sees a priest killed. He finds three nuns with two Mexican men helping them and several Navaho orphans camped nearby being attacked. They are on the way to the St. Joseph Mission to help the Indians. Flint drives off the Indians but one of the two Mexicans is mortally wounded. Once they help the wounded including Flint, Flint leads them toward the wagon train but his sighting of Indians forces him to take a different route to a water hole. The other Mexican leaves them during the night and the group is surrounded by the Utes.

Blood Enemies
27 January 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Wagon Train story has Robert Horton doing his scouting thing when he comes upon three wagons besieged by a band of Utes. His surprise help drives the Utes away, but they'll be back. The party consists of three nuns Vera Miles, Frances Bavier, and Sylvia Marriott and a group of Navajo orphans. They're going to a mission school and it is hoped that Flint McCullough can intercept the Wagon Train and give them protection if they can hold out.

The Utes are blood enemies of the Navajo and having just wiped out a village where these kids came from hope to make a clean sweep. The nuns however are their protectors though they might need a little protection themselves.

The episode gets a little hairy when Robert Horton starts showing an interest in Vera Miles, he's not been around nuns and Miles has not taken her final vows yet. She's intrigued with Flint McCullough as well, but decides her prior commitment must hold.

Some brave women are shown in this Wagon Train tale.
