Too much going on for a thirty minute show.
21 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode begins in a higher class gambling house in Virginia City that is run by a hard-headed lady named Sal. A man, Jed Harper, is sitting at a table and has drawn a picture of Sal and calls her to his table. When Sal comes over she takes the drawing from Jed and tears it up. There is obviously a history between the two.

With Jed upset, he goes over to one of the card dealers and shows that she is cheating the players. One of the players, Conway, demands his money back. Sal plays high card with Conway for high-card and he again loses.

Later we learn that Jed and Sal use to have a relationship in New Orleans. In fact, they were to marry but Jed never showed up at the wedding with no explanation. Sal has been hurt ever since. But now we find out that Jed had been arrested for spying and was in a prison camp. Jed is there to smooth out their situation.

But when Jed shoots Conway while attempting to hold Sal at gun point, Sal decides to turn the table, She tells the police that Jed's story is false. She said she was never in the room. Jed is arrested.

There is just too much hate/love things going on in this episode between Jed and Sal. In one scene they cannot stand each other and in the next they are in each other arms. Carolyn Jones did a nice job in the episode and really came through as the hurt female that holds a grudge against the person she felt left her at the alter. However, the story was jumping around so much that the thirty minute format did not do the plot justice. A nice story that had to be done too quickly.
