Storyline

Wishbone buries his brother "alive" to keep Kiowas from killing him for romancing the stony chief's wife. T.J. turns out to be a comical embarrassment: a pot fixer whose customers fight to scalp him for his shoddy tinking, which is his ploy for woman chasing. For years, trail cook Wishy's fellow drovers heard the cook laud his misplaced little brother's prowess as a warrior, politician, you name it. But angering the Kiowa at the moment is deadly serious, because the tribe is divided over signing a treaty. Young braves oppose old Chief Wankawa inking the doc. Written by David Stevens

Quotes

Gil Favor: It takes three things to make a trail drive: cattle, horses and men. And some say two because a man without a horse is no man at all. There are mornin's when I think a horse without a man would be better. I should know men by now, but I keep learnin'. I'm Gil Favor, trail boss.

Wishbone's brother
18 August 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Rawhide episode finds Gil Favor and the drovers coming across Indians chasing and nearly killing Regis Toomey who is none other than Paul Brinegar's brother. The drovers help Toomey by faking a burial, but the Indians still don't quite buy it.

Paul Brinegar has done a lot of bragging on his brother so it's a bit of an embarassment to him to find he's nothing but a tinker and not a very good one at that.

But Toomey has something or knows something some Indians want and they'll kill him if they have to. And of course he's not quite all he seems.

Highlight of this episode are the scenes between brothers Brinegar and Toomey. The Wishbone family honor seems to be at stake.
