Storyline

The scouts come across the wreckage of another wagon train that was attacked by Comancheros. The only person they find alive is a young Comanchero who warns Hale that his group is planning to attack this wagon train as well, and tells them how and when. Though Hale is inclined to believe the young man, Hawks is skeptical, believing his story may be a trap. Many of the train's passengers believe this as well, and are angry when Hale recruits some of the young men to come with him to check. When some of the young men are killed anger turns particularly against Hale and the young Comanchero, and a mutiny develops. Written by rbecker28

Dan Duryea speaks treason
18 September 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

As you can tell by the title this Wagon Train episode is concerned with a mutiny that John McIntire is facing because of a decision he made regarding some Comanchero raiders. Denny Miller comes across a previous Wagon Train that has been wiped out, but one wounded Comanchero was left behind, a young kid played by Jose DeVega. He tells McIntire that he was abducted in a raid on his village and has played along to survive. He also says that the band that did the raid on the previous and much smaller Wagon Train was only part of the group.

McIntire makes a decision to launch a first strike against the camp. It does not go down well with the members of the Wagon Train. Even Terry Wilson questions the wisdom as he doesn't trust Comancheros on general principle. Wilson goes along though, but Dan Duryea stirs up trouble after that raid nets a few casualties including Jane Wyman's young son.

Wyman gives a gut wrenching performance as a grieving mother who is caught between anger, revenge, and grief. They all register at the same time with her. Duryea is his usual nasty self.

These two Hollywood icons are enough reason to see this Wagon Train story.
