A millionaire embezzler sneaks back across the border to prevent his daughter from becoming a nun. On the way, he hijacks Buzz and Tod.

A mild episode, at best. Not much happens even though the premise tries to play up some kind of menace. Reviewer shappe1 is right: Fairbanks plays embezzler Clayton as too nice a guy to generate any real suspense. I suspect that's why the script has tough guy Antonio (Tolan) pull a gun, but as it turns out, to no particular effect. Then too, this is a religiously themed show, so the answer to whether Bonnie (Bethune) will become a nun or not is all to predictable. It might help if Tod and Buzz were given something to do besides tag along, but they're not. Then too, we don't even see much of location Dallas.

The ending is thought-provoking and maybe the entry's only notable feature. I'm guessing it was the writers' effort to compensate for the generally lacklustre remainder. Plus, it also explains why embezzler Clayton has to be a good guy. However that may be, for all Buzz and Tod get to do, they could have mailed this one in.
