#4 - "Rendezvous At Arillo"
1965 - 1966
The story opens with Reese waking Joe from a nap and rousting Chad from a lady's boudoir after spotting a wanted man (Durkee played by Bruce Dern). After chasing Durkee into the Captain's office, Chad and Reese argue outside about whether he's there for a meeting or to kill the Captain.
On the way to Arillo, they meet Annamay, a widow with two children who thinks the Rangers were sent by the Governor to straighten out the title dispute on her farm. As it turns out, Sam Burns is trying to claim the title to her farm because the Jamisons have converted their loot to silver bars and buried them in Annamay's barn. After the obligatory saloon brawl and a little home cooking from Annamay who has her eye on Reese for a husband, the boys take the gang and the silver.
NiteOwl Review: This episode plays like a premiere episode with a humorous story, good guests stars and a display of the rangers typical foibles. It's one of our favorite episodes.

Joe suggests the Captain could be getting his throat slit while they argue. They rush in guns drawn, which the Captain takes as a sign they're volunteering to accompany the amnesty-seeking Durkee to round up the Jamison gang at the border. To this end, they're sent to Arillo with a vain warning not to get into a brawl.
