Episode Summary

EDIT
Twenty Miles from Dodge
AIRED:
You'd think Kitty would have learned her lesson about taking stagecoach trips. On this one, while returning to Dodge (and a very impatient Matt), Kitty, Eleanor Starkey and her son, gambler Will Helmick, a railroad magnate, another young man, the stage driver and shotgun guard are kidnapped by Grant Shay and his gang. They are force marched over rough terrain to a cabin in the cold hills where they are kept in an open corral, exposed to the wind, and unfed. Kitty is somewhat put off by the gambler who seems to be no help at all in remedying their situation. There seems to be little or no compassion from their captors. Escorted by one of Shay's men, Eleanor is sent to Dodge to deliver ransom demands to Matt. The money is gathered and they go to the cabin for the exchange. When Matt and Festus show up with the money Shay's plans are altered.moreless
