Series regular characters appearing in this episode: The Virginian

Brief Synopsis:
On a business trip for the Judge, the Virginian meets 3 missionary women
on the train to San Pablo. Trying desperately to convince them not to
continue with their plans to travel to Sonora and into Yaqui territory,
which holds almost certain death for them all, he finds they go against
his wise advice and continue their search for a guide. When the only man
who is willing to guide them robs and deserts them in the middle of the
desert, the Virginian reluctantly agrees to escort them. What they didn't
tell him was the Indians they are going to witness to are the same
Indians who murdered their husbands just one year ago. The episode takes
some interesting turn of events as the Virginian and the youngest widow
fall in love, and she questions her dedication to her quest and to the
other 2 women whom she took a no-turn-back vow with. (arl)
