Soon-Taik Oh, seen previously in the first season episode "Sun and Cloud Shadow," plays a different character here, Chen Yi, who, after defeating Caine in an honorable challenge was expelled from the Shaolin temple, now residing in a prison cell after confessing to the murder of a man who came between him and his fiancée, Louise Coblenz (Marianna Hill). Chen Yi is also a master craftsman, and has left his valuable collection to Louise to help her take care of her wheelchair-bound older sister Rita (Bethel Leslie). Although never close to Chen Yi back in China, Caine decides to find out the truth about what happened, beginning with a mild attempt at bank robbery to land himself at the same prison. Robert Cornthwaite appears as a frightened bank teller, Robert Middleton plays the town marshal, and James Hong (in his third of eight episodes) cameos as an elderly priest. A veteran of HAWAII 5-0, Soon-Taik Oh would return the next season in one more entry, "The Devil's Champion."
