This Maverick episode has Jack Kelly running into Wynn Pearce on the desert who has two goals at the moment. Getting to a railroad board of directors in St.Louis on time to cast his vote against a hostile takeover against his father and getting a rare cactus species back to develop and propagate.

For once it's not a woman who tricks a Maverick. Pearce says he wants to travel incognito and wants Bart to be him. Lots of poker money is offered so Jack Kelly agrees.

What he doesn't tell him is that folks are more hostile than usual and might want to kill him. Meanwhile as a baggage boy Pearce finds a bit of romance with Pippa Scott, daughter of tycoon Edgar Buchanan.

So Bart is dodging bullets and all manner of hostility while Pearce enjoys some nookie. As the Good Lord intended.
