Goofs

When Heath Barkley's back is whipped inside the encampment of the religious sect, there seem to be no scars visible from the previous two floggings he suffered in the past 15 months, once in The Big Valley: Legend of a General: Part 1 and again in The Big Valley: The Iron Box See more »

Quotes

Hemit: [after supervising Heath Barkley's flogging] I hope by now that you have learned the hopelessness of trying to escape, for the next time your punishment will not be so simple.

A good ending but just too long to get there.
24 October 2012 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

Heath is captured by a strange religious cult that is lead by a man only known as Hermit. They believe that Heath is responsible for the death of one of their members years ago. So now they have their own court and sentence Heath to be a slave the rest of his life.

It seems that the member that died was to have married one of the woman members named Bettina. So Heath is to be her slave. At first Bettina is hateful toward Heath but as time pass she begins having feelings for the young Barkley. It will be those feeling that will lead to an unexpected ending to the story.

The episode appeared to be long. There was little supporting action but much unimpressive dialog. The ending was good but nothing else to support the show.
