The story leaves a lot to be desired

This episode begins inside a boxcar where three black nuns are caring for a women and her two small kids. The women is very sick and is on her way to Dodge to give the kids to their father Pack Landers (Jack Elam).

Before the train arrives in Dodge City the women has died and the two children are in the care of nuns; Mother Tabitha, Sister Charles and Sister Blanche. They meet up with Festus that explains to the nuns that Mr Pack Landers is a backwoods ornery old man that did not care for anyone. However, the nuns will carry the kids to Mr Landers per the request of the dead wife.

So now the Nuns will take evaluation of Mr Landers in order to make sure that the children will be taken good care. This will prove to be harder than first thought as Landers wants nothing to do with the kids until he finds out that money may be involved.

Even though this episode is played well by the cast, the ending did not leave a warm and fuzzy feeling. The show at times was funny and at other times heartwarming. But when the final scenes of the show are played out- the viewer feels almost duped by the writers. Not really a poor show but do not expected too much from this episode -you could be disappointed.
