Chester again lets himself be used like a tissue
20 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chester is set to make a trip to his cousin's house about four days ride from Dodge. He happens up the Dell farm house asking for water and some grain. The only person home is a teenage girl named Callie.

Callie's father is a strict disciplinarian that happens to be away from the house with his son. They had heard about a run-away Indian in the area and was possibly looking for signs of his whereabouts. What they did not know was that the Indian was being hidden by Callie. So when Chester comes riding to the farm, the Indian comes out of hiding and jumps on a horse. Chester shoots him wounding him in the shoulder.

Callie makes Chester feel so bad that he agrees to take the Indian into the woods and care for his wounds. He must get the Indian out of the quick since Callie's father would be returning and they would surely kill the run-away Indian.

We have come to learn that Chester can be manipulated into doing almost anything when a woman is around. This situation is no different. Chester will find out that he should have kept on riding to his cousin's house than to help Callie with her attraction to the Indian brave.

This really is not a bad story but one that the viewer felt would end differently than how the show played out. I am sure no character got what they were wanting or expecting- especially Chester.
