Part 4 - the final episode
29 August 2010 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Season 3 Episode 24- "Full Circle" delivers what it promises, the finale to a great series. Kwai Chang Caine accompanies his older brother Danny (Tim McIntire) to the San Francisco ranch of General Cantrell (John Vernon), who plans on keeping Danny's son Zeke in his home as his only surviving relative and heir. Not keen on seeing his former father-in-law, who forced his daughter to divorce Danny when their child was only six months old, Danny is aware that his former partner in the Barbary House, Vincent Corbino (Leslie Nielsen), is still itching for the opportunity to punish his disobedience. Running the ranch is the young ramrod, Tigre (A Martinez, previously seen opposite John Vernon in "My Brother, My Executioner"), who has lived there his entire life, the offspring of the General's secret affair with an Indian woman. Eventually, all ends happily as the entire family sits down at dinner together, without prejudice. Danny and Zeke want to buy their own ranch and keep in touch with General Cantrell and his son Tigre, but Kwai Chang Caine never stays in one place. "My journey ends and comes full circle at my death." With these words, David Carradine bows before the camera, the screen goes black, and the series is over (the next phase of his career began with 1975's "Death Race 2000"). Also seen in the very last sequence is Keye Luke's beloved, blind Master Po, the sage of such comforting thoughts, who would return for the 1986 "Kung Fu," a TV movie sequel that also brought back Mako ("The Tide"), Benson Fong (the pilot, plus "Blood Brother," "The Brujo," and "The Vanishing Image"), Roy Jenson (the pilot,plus "Superstition"), an unbilled Tad Horino (8 episodes), and introduced Brandon Lee, son of the late Bruce Lee, playing the son of Kwai Chang Caine (his mother appeared in "The Forbidden Kingdom"). To say the least, this series finale deserved to be so much better, but it is what it is.
