Butterfly Dreams
28 December 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode is actually narrated by one of the supporting characters -- perhaps our first clue that this is best seen as an "Americanized" fairy tale. Certainly all the Archetypes are present -- a beautiful princess, a fatal curse, and princess's stalwart protector, who falls completely under her spell.

I have as yet found no reference to "The Lady of the Five Moons", represented in an exquisite statuette Paladin accepts in exchange for escorting the daughter of a slain friend to a rendezvous with the ship that will return her to her aristocratic family in China, before a vengeful Tong appropriates her as payment for her father's gambling debts -- or simply kills her. But this story does manage to incorporate one of the most famous musings of the Chinese Philosopher Chuang Chou regarding dreams, men, and butterflies.

Kudos to Bethel Leslie for her performance as both the young Kim Sing and as the elderly matriarch determined to save both her granddaughter and her Family's honour. And to the equally talented William Schallert, as the faithful retainer who sadly watches events unfold and move slowly to their inevitable conclusion.
