One of the better episodes from season 12
30 July 2012 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

With good acting and an interesting plot, the writers really come through on this episode from 1967. Guest cast members Stephen McNally and a young Kim Darby plus regular Amanda Blake make this show one of the better episodes of the season.

It begins as Ms Kitty is on her way back to Dodge by stagecoach where she encounters some private lawmen that are determined to catch a murder suspect Dal Neely (Stephen McNally). The lawmen have a lure in form of Dal's daughter Carrie Neeley (Kim Darby). They have brought her from St Louis, after paying off the mother, in order to catch the criminal.

Ms Kitty gets caught up with the entire situation when she is taken by the lawmen in order to keep the trap secret from all parties. They force Ms Kitty off the stage even though she is due back in Dodge in a few hours.

When the stage gets into Dodge City, Doc, Festus and Matt are waiting. Ms Kitty is no where to be found and the stage driver tells Matt he knows nothing about her. But she does leave a little present behind for the people in Dodge to know that she was taken off the stage. They finally get the driver to confess they she was left back at a stop some hours ago. Now Matt and Festus are on the case.

Not only does the viewer get the conflict of the kidnap of Ms Kitty but we also get the conflict of father and daughter. And the latter will make the show one of the better episode of the season.

A good watch for any 'Gunsmoke' fan.
