Great acting saves this episode
23 August 2012 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

Perhaps not the most interesting show, but one thing you will carry from the episode is that a villain need not be uneducated. In this story we have Malachi Throne playing Frank Colder. Even if you do not remember anything about this episode, you will remember Frank Colder the leader of this band of criminals.

The story begins when an old friend of Victoria named Elaine Jason comes to Stockton. Elaine and her husband, Bert, are on their way to opening a general store in the growing Stockton community.

However what is unknown to Elaine is that her husband has plotted with Frank Colder- and since the store is next to the train station- they are to dig a tunnel to steal gold that is to be used for Barkley's payroll.

When Audra accidentally discovers the plan, she and Elaine are tied up in the basement of the store. And when the criminals hit a gas line, it fills the basement knocking out Audra and Elaine.

Frank Colder now has the gold and tells the others to leave the women in the basement. Bert Jason now has to either see his wife die or go against the tough Frank Colder.

Really not a bad episode but rather unremarkable. The story is predictable which lessen the interest in the show. The highlight was the actors. The regular, and guest, cast do a great job of making the characters come to life.
