Roving eye and evil intent
15 September 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The running thread in the Maverick series is that for all their shrewdness at the poker table and life in general the Maverick brothers seem always to have the ability to fall for a woman's wiles. They do tend to think with the male member.

But I don't think anyone had such evil intentions as Joanna Barnes in this episode. She's the wife of Howard Petrie who has political ambitions to be governor of Colorado. But Barnes has a roving eye and she's in an affair with John Reach.

So she gets something going with Jack Kelly. But that's just a come-on. She has some real evil intent. Petrie's no prize, I'd hate to think of him as governor of anything.

Joanna Barnes stands out in this one, what a vixen.
