EDIT
The Widow
AIRED:
Mattie Arthur arrives on the stagecoach. She is the wife of Captain Frank Arthur, killed by the Kiowa four months ago. Corporal Johnny Jennings was the only survivor of the battle. She has come to find her husband, who she thinks may be a prisoner. She wants him or his body. Colonel Ebert can't help due to the treaty. Matt tells her he agrees with the colonel. She offers a reward to anyone bringing her husband back dead or alive. Jennings says the captain was run through with a lance. A wolfer, Emil Peck, agrees to take her to Lands Creek, the site of the battle. The Hotel clerk tells Matt, Mattie skipped out. Colonel Ebert won't send troopers. Matt asks for Jennings who goes. Peck is ready to ax Mattie. Matt saves the day. She pulls a "gun" on Matt. A large number of Kiowa appear. Little Bear takes them to Lands Creek. The Kiowa have given Arthur an indian burial wrapped in a chief's blanket. All Mattie has wanted all along is proof of his death for the will and insurance.moreless
