The dandy gent from Orleans was just too obnoxious.
7 August 2013 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

New Orleans dandy-man, Billy Chris, arrives in Dodge to see Ms Kitty. It seems that Billy is the brother of an old friend of Kitty's, many years ago, before Kitty moved to Dodge. Billy is on his way out west and offered to ride and see Kitty for his sister. However Billy is horrified to find that Kitty is a saloon woman and even part owner. Billy finds himself wanting to defend the honor of Kitty Russell even when Kitty feels her honor does not need defending.

When Billy wants to start trouble with some rowdy cowboys Kitty tries to find a way to keep Billy from getting hurt or even killed. When Matt refuses to get involved, Kitty will have to take drastic action to avoid the death of a man defending her honor.

Even though the ending of the episode is actually heart-breaking, for the most part the show did not carry much interest. It was like a child was running loose on the streets of Dodge and no one in the cast would scold him. It was nice to see some of Kitty's old friends but perhaps they should have some valuable information before getting off the stage in the rural west.
