A routine script that was not ordinary.
10 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

This episode opens up as an unknown man has just killed a relay station operator and is dragging him to be buried. The scene then switches to Timberline where the stagecoach is loading for a trip to Fort Tremaine with two passengers. One of the passengers is a man claiming to be John Rhodes and a female passenger Anne Marston. Ms Marston is going to visit her husband, Lt Marston, at the Fort. While Rhodes is a cattle salesman.

During the trip to half-way house, we learn that there has been trouble with the Indians near the Fort. We also learn that the man claiming to be Rhodes really is a gambler and wanted man by the name of Rupe. Luke refuses for Rupe to ride any further and tells him to get his own horse. So the stage leaves with Ms Marston and Davey in the cabin and Luke and Simon on the top.

When they get to the relay station, they found that the operator has been killed. Inside the house is a cavalry officer that has been wounded by the Indians. He tells them that the Indians are on the war-path and someone has given them rifles. In the meantime, Rupe has made it to the relay station due to buying a horse on the way. With the Indians attacking the house, we will learn more information about Rupe and also why the Indians are attacking.

This is one of the routine stories that most western series experience at least one time. The reason this story is not ordinary is the interaction between the characters. There is more to this story than meets the eye as some of the minor characters make the tale much more entertaining. An interesting way to tell a routine story that made the viewer feel more beneficial for watching.
