Storyline

Four men escape from Yuma Prison by hiding in barrels with a thirst for revenge against a man named Aben Starr who turned them in after their first escape. One of the barrels falls off the wagon causing the driver to stop. The barrel contains Cutler who is slightly injured in the fall. One of the other men shoots the driver when he goes to inspect the barrel. Starr works at the Saddle Creek Way Station and Randall shows up there expecting the men to arrive also. Soon two of the escapees, Martin Ash and Henry Turner, do arrive taking Josh and Starr captive while waiting for their partners to show. Before they do a stage rides in carrying a Quaker and his deaf-mute sister on their way to a school for other deaf-mutes. They all wait for the other two men to show up so they can carry out their revenge against Starr. The Quaker is killed going for a horse when he goes out for water leaving Josh and Starr with the woman who does read lips and understands Josh's silent request for help. Written by tomtrekp

Good suspenseful episode, featuring two of the most popular box office stars of the 60's & 70's, Coburn and McQueen. Four convicts escape in barrels and take over a stage waystation to get revenge on Aben, the station master. Josh is there but mostly as a bystander. Meanwhile, Meeker gets the screen time and mugs it up as the lead outlaw. Fellow outlaw Coburn's almost unrecognizable in a really big eye patch, but the voice is unmistakable. Kudos to the writer who included the deaf-mute girl who stumbles in with her escort. Her presence gives the episode unexpected pathos. Anyway, it's an unusual thirty-minutes, almost like a stage play for some very well-known performers.
