Episode Summary

EDIT
Hostage!
AIRED:
The greatest bad-guy character actor of our time, William Smith, plays Jude Bonner, a bad guy who kidnaps, brutalizes, and shoots Miss Kitty in retaliation for his brother having been caught by Matt Dillon and hung for his crimes. Probably for the first time in seventeen years of Gunsmoke, Dillon takes off his marshal's badge before going after Bonner, with the intent of killing him.moreless

  • Kitty is kidnapped and beaten and Matt takes off his badge to exact revenge.

    9.1
    I found this episode to be very revealing. We really get to see Matt’s devotion to Kitty and we find out how far he will go to exact revenge for her beating and close brush with death. We also find that Kitty can’t live without him. The townspeople also show their feelings for Matt and Kitty as well by joining up with Festus and Newly to follow Matt. William Smith shows why he is “ the best bad man out there” not only does he beat Kitty within an inch of her life but he shoots her in the back in front of the whole town. All around I found the acting in this episode was excellent.moreless
