A young man is picked up at a train station, taken to a nearby monastery, and met by Father Vincente, who is in charge of the monastery. The visitor introduces himself as Mr. Unser, and asks to see a friend named Rocco who is temporarily being cared for by the monks. But the priest realizes that the visitor is not Unser, but rather Clements, who blames Rocco for robbing him and ruining his life. Knowing that Clements has come for revenge, the priest returns the money that Rocco stole from him, but refuses to let him see Rocco. The priest urges Clements to forgive Rocco, but the young man remains consumed by hatred and anger, and persists in his efforts to gain revenge. Written by Snow Leopard

It's not possible for a person to die standing up. When Floyd Unser is shot as he stands in between two trunks that he had used to hide behind. That would not have allowed him to remain in the position shown. Once he died his knees would have buckled and his body would have slumped. It's possible he might not have hit the floor. But, he never would have stayed in the position seen here. See more »

Religiously themed show, featuring pretty boy Mark Damon, an unusual appearance for the series. Damon's youthful Clements travels to a monastery to wreak revenge on a man housed there who stole money from him. Father Vincente, the authoritative Everett Sloane, tries to talk him out of it through their shared religious background. Clements wavers, but will he give it up.

It's not a very riveting entry. Only a little suspense builds as we wonder what the lad will do. But the casting of an innocent-looking Damon pretty much telegraphs the outcome. Still, the ending is subtly ironic if you think about it. Note too, that Brother Jared's appeal to Clements is made on humanitarian grounds, not explicitly religious as might be expected. That way the episode avoids sectarian entanglements with its audience. And I agree with the reviewer who observes that these early episodes appear very cheaply produced. My guess is the money went into casting as it does here with movie vet Sloane. Fortunately, story and acting were uppermost in this superior dramatic series.
