Storyline

While enjoying the pleasure of her new marriage to Victor Harp, he tells Kitty that he has married her while still married to a woman named Martha who he must join on the wagon train to San Francisco. There he plans to divorce her. As they hate to be separated, Victor hires former Harvard classmate and disbarred attorney Miles Brisbane who is in jail to pretend to be Kitty's husband so Kitty can go along and Victor will not be discovered as a bigamist. Victor will pay Miles enough money to follow his dream to go to the South Pacific. Later on the train, when Harp tells Kitty that he can not leave the wealthy Martha, Kitty gives Victor an ultimatum which he mocks and in anger she shoots Victor to death and then flees the wagon train. Martha offers a reward of $5,000 for the return of Kitty and Miles pursues her for the reward to fund his dream. While returning her, the pair develops feelings for each other. Miles leaves her with the wagon train to face trial despite the fact Kitty will... Written by Byron Nelson

Four sided triangle rocks the Wagon Train
17 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

TV's former Johnny Ringo plays one of the most despicable cads in the history of Wagon Train. As the show opens he marries Diana Hyland and then informs her that passion carried him away and he jumped the gun and married her before divorcing rich and older Jeanne Cooper off whom he's been living. But when he gets to San Francisco he'll divorce her and so things look respectable pays his rather iconoclastic friend from college Bradford Dillman to pretend he's Hyland's husband for the trip.

Lovely arrangement for Durant with conjugal visits to both women. But it all comes to an end when he gets shot by Hyland very tired of being used.

This episode comes right out of an afternoon soap opera. Yet the four people involved put it over. Jeanne Cooper is most vicious in fact. She knows she married a rat, but he's her rat. And Durant, all I can say his cad came right out of the George Sanders playbook.

If you like westerns tinged with soap opera this episode is for you.
