A dull uninteresting story.
23 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In an episode that began with such 'high hopes' the story ended with very little fanfare. Lt. David Marr from the Confederate Army has written to resign. His resignation has been approved but this comes as a shock to his unit. They are claiming that Marr is afraid and begin to call him yellow as Marr heads back home to Springfield that is now under Union control.

As he approaching the town, the Union army are not to happy to have a former Rebel officer living around them and say they will be talking with him soon. In the meantime, Marr gets a job helping the local doctor, Jim Randolph, that has been called to work at the Union campsite. That is when we learn the reason for the show and the reason that Marr left the army.

Perhaps there just was not enough flow to this story but it just seemed to be stuck in mediocrity. With such a good beginning, the story lack any productive structure that would cause a viewer to become interested. To be honest, this episode was just boring.
