Leathery old stationmaster Teaspoon Hunter moves his Pony Express way-station from Sweetwater, Wyoming to the larger, more urbanized community of Rock Creek, Nebraska, as The Young Riders begins its third and final season. Now a US marshal, Teaspoon has left the care and maintenance of his station in the hands of his loyal young riders, including The Kid (Ty Miller), Billy Cody (Stephen Baldwin), Jimmy Hickok (Josh Brolin), Ike McSwain (Travis Fine), Buck Cross (Gregg Rainwater), Noah Dixon (Don Franklin) and "token female" Lou McCloud (Yvonne Suhor). Also making the big move to Rock Creek are the station's secretive cook Rachel (Claire Wren) and enterprising storekeeper Tompkins (Don Collier). And in the second episode of the season, a brash 14-year-old Missouri refugee named Jesse James (Christopher Pettiet) signs on with the Pony Express. The most startling event of the season is the sudden death of the taciturn Ike McSwain, who dies while protecting the only woman he has ever loved. Less startling but definitely out of the ordinary is one of the few episodes built around the half-Kiowan Buck Cross, in which he is reunited with the woman of his tribe who'd been promised to him in marriage years earlier--and who now is apparently possessed by an evil-spirit. In the not uneventful series finale, Cody signs up as an Army scout (he's getting closer and closer to those Buffalo!), life turns sour for Noah when he is denied entry in an all-white military regiments, Lou and the Kid finally get married, and hotheaded Jesse James is inveigled into joining his brother Frank in a new and less reputable line of work. ~ Hal Erickson
