Little Joe is in hot water again.
19 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode begins when Little Joe wins a poker hand from two visitors while in Virginia City. Little Joe believes that one of the visitors had put up a horse on his bet, however the bet turns out to be a Chinese young girl name Su Ling. And needless to say, Ben is not happy when Little Joe brings the young woman to the house.

Su Ling was actually brought over to American by a war-lord named General Mu Tsung that is looking for her when she was basically kidnapped by the two visitors that were playing poker with Joe. It seems that the General has feeling for Su Ling and goes to lengths to find the young woman and wants her to return with him. But Su Ling not only has the Cartwright's but also is now working for a Chinese Doctor where she feel that she has finally found a place in a foreign country. When General Tsung finds out that Su Ling is living with the Cartwright, his knife toting buddies and himself will make the Cartwrights pay.

This episode is somewhat more interesting than the regular Chinese outsider visiting the Cartwright ranch. Instead of being introduced to a stage full of laundry cleaners or servant, this episode shows that Chinese people contributed to life in the rural west. Lisa Lu is excellent as the young Chinese girl that has more talent than just smiling at the camera which makes the episode better than expected.
