While on a mission for the Continental Congress, Dan (Fess Parker) and British-accented surveyor David Watson (as David Scott) stop at a ranch for some water. There, they meet attractive sisters Joan Hackett (as Theodora) and Donna Baccala (as Leslie). "Educated in Europe," and sporting what could either be a natural coonskin-cap hairstyle or a Beatle haircut, Mr. Watson seems interested, but there is no real romance between the foursome. However, and quite strangely, Ms. Hackett decides to make the men her slaves. She orders them to mine salt, at gunpoint. We later find out that Hackett has a beef with Bo Svenson (as Warren Haskins), who arrives to take over the villain role. This is an interesting change in the regular series' situation, but the story is too cartoonish and it doesn't even get started until halftime.
