Review of "Badge Without Honor," episode 3 of season 2 of Bonanza

Review of

Badge Without Honor, episode 3 of season 2 of Bonanza

Five out of five stars

A wolf in lawman’s clothing

 When two men attempt to gun down an unsuspecting Adam Cartwright, a man claiming to be a deputy U. S. Marshall kills them. He is a charming man, deft with words and a quality swordsman. A woman close to the Cartwright’s and considered equivalent to a sister to the Cartwright boys is married to a man that has a dark and unknown past.

 The Marshall states that he is there to escort the husband back to San Francisco in order to testify at a trial. However, uncertainties are developed as there are some inconsistencies in his story. Adam decides to accompany the two men to San Francisco, a development that the Marshall does not like. He is in fact a hired killer whose mission is to kill the husband. This forces am armed confrontation between Adam and the Marshall.

 This is an excellent episode, the supposed Marshall is many things, even a ladies man as he charms the woman, taking what would be scandalous liberties with her in the days being depicted.
