Escape to Ponderosa - Bonanza S1|25

Adam is bushwhacked by three deserters from the Army who are hiding out on the Ponderosa. When Ben pursues them, he is hindered by a Captain Bolton, the arrogant commander of a military posse who is also after the men. Three army prisoners have escaped Ft Dayton. Mertz still has chains around his wrists. Of the three, he's the big, dumb, strong one. Paul Tyler is trying to use a rock to break through the chains. He's not having any luck. The third escapee, Sutton, leans against a rock complaining. He chastises Mertz for having killed the guard on the escape. He says they'll never get the chain off with rocks. Mertz says maybe the friend Sutton's taking them to will have a chisel. "Sure, we'll tell her you always go around wearing chains." Tyler is surprised to find out they're heading to a woman's house. Adam, who's out looking for strays, hears them talking and goes to investigate. Unfortunately, they overpower him, and he's knocked out. More on https://bonanza.fandom.com/wiki/Escape_to_Ponderosa
