Brief Synopsis:
The Virginian and Steve arrive in Center City to find the townspeople gathered angrily outside of the bank
that has closed due to a money panic. The Virginian, concerned for the money they are in town to collect
from the sale of Judge Garth's cattle, heads for Mr. Moody's office, the Judge's lawyer. Though Mr. Moody
managed to secure the money before the bank closed, getting it back to Medicine Bow poses an interesting
dilemma and unfolds an interesting turn of events. How is he to carry $40,000 back to Medicine Bow?
This episode takes many twists and turns as The Virginian sets out to get the money safely back to Medicine Bow,
with a disgruntled townsperson close behind. The Virginian ends up being thrown off of a train he hopped,
"married" to a girl who is running away, and has to solve the mystery of who stole the money,
rebundled with newspaper. Watch this episode to find out who really did steal the money. [arl]
