Storyline

Lucas and Mark McCain have a new neighbor in the form of Abel MacDonald and his son Carey. The elder MacDonald is not very friendly ordering them off of his land which he has just acquired as a homesteader. Mark and Carey become friendly however and he learns the MacDonalds lost everything due to his late mother's excessive doctors bills. When Carey has a serious accident, Abel refuses to let Doc Burrage anywhere near the boy. It's left to Lucas to act or the boy will die. Written by garykmcd

Lucas has to teach a nasty neighbor that everyone is not evil
13 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this entertaining episode, Lucas and Mark have a new neighbor. Mr Able MacDonald and his young son Carey- who happens to be right around Mark's age. But there is a problem, it seems Mr MacDonald hates everyone he meets includes Lucas McCain.

However we learn in the episode that Mr MacDonald has had a rough life and it seems that he takes it out on everyone including his young son. With Mark and Carey becoming friends, his father is bound to keep the McCain's away from the land at all cost, including risking his son's life.

Even though the writers let Lucas takes some liberties in this episode it was still a nice way to spend thirty minutes of TV. The show was entertaining to the very end. Good watch.
