An unexpected ending saddens this wonderful tale
7 June 2013 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

I will say that the episode started out with a bang when Chester and a large man name Groat is in a fight on Front Street. But the most surprising part is Kitty is doing all she can trying to get the large brute off Chester that was defending her honor against words made by Groat.

After the scuffle the regular group is in the Marshal's office when a young attractive woman named Ann walks-in wanting to know where she could find a childhood friend named Shomer. Ann advises that she is making this surprise visit in order to marry him. But little does Ann know that Shomer is a no-good drunk and the laughing stock of Dodge.

Matt, Doc and Chester go out to Shomer's shack and advise him that Ann is in town. They sober him up and say they will make a story up to give Shomer a few days before seeing Ann. But things are not going to end as planned.

Was really not expecting much from this episode but was pleasantly impressed with the results. A stiff ending makes this entire episode even better. Good show.
