Marshal killed Corneila's husband, now she wants him dead
18 November 2012 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

Oren Conrad is a man that comes into Dodge with the purpose of gambling and seeing women even though he has a wife at home. When he thinks his saloon girl is wanting to see another man, Hank Ives, he gets into a gunfight with Hank inside the Long Branch. Marshal Dillon just happens to be in the saloon while all this is going on and tells Oren to stop. But Oren draws hitting Hank which makes Matt have to shoot and kill Oren.

When Dillon goes out to tell his wife, Cornelia, about the death, she becomes enraged to the point of saying that she demands a eye-for-an-eye which means she wants Marshal Dillon dead.

She tries to hire some gunman that turn her down. She even tries herself to kill Ms Kitty, Marshal's girl, but cannot muster the courage. Then she happens to run into Ben Harden. Ben is a nice single young man that is smitten with Cornelia Conrad. At first Cornelia is just using him so that he will accept the duty to kill Matt. But later her feeling change as she begins falling for the young Ben Harden.

But with the dye already cast, will she have time to change the plan? Will she be able to halt the murder that she has been longing?

Even with the very predictable script, the show played out nicely on the screen. Not the most popular show of the season but enough to hold the viewer's interest.
