Episode Summary

EDIT
Long Ride to Wind River
AIRED:
Medicine Bow storekeeper, Benjy Davis, a friend of the Virginian, is sentenced to death for murdering Hobey Kendall, a man who sexually assaulted his wife. However, Benjy says he had met a man near the murdered man's home named Jonah McIntosh and the Virginian traces that man to a colony of mountain men near Wind River. Jonah admits he killed Kendall in self-defence but will not return to clear Benjy. The Virginian takes Jonah a prisoner but has a difficult time getting Jonah back to Medicine Bow due to the pursuing mountain men and an encounter with a murderous trapper. He manages to accomplish his task thanks to the help of a beautiful young Shoshone widow, Hapamawa and to a growing respect and trust between himself and Jonah.moreless

    A lot of good things and some not so good things in this episode.

    Some complain that there are too many twists to the plot.

    But, in this one, in the scene where he is sitting on the ground speaking back to the mountain men, Drury gets the elusive Virginia (NoVa, upper Piedmont, lower Shenandoah valley) accent spot on.

    • Walter Woolf King was a semi-regular playing the Judge in the Medicine Bow court. Usually he is not given a name. However, he is referred to here in the closing credits as "Judge Plant" in contrast to an earlier episode ("Rope of Lies," Season 2 episode #25) where he is listed as "Judge Bradford", another earlier episode ("A Gallows for Sam Horn," Season 3 #12) where he is listed as Judge MacDonald, and the later "Deadeye Dick" (Season 5, episode #9) where he is referred to as "Judge Winters"

    • The Virginian and Emmett Ryker are the only regulars to appear in this episode and Emmett's appearance is relatively brief in scences at the beginning and end of the episode.
