Candy's early life is revealed in this nice western story.
22 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Ben, Hoss, Joe and Candy are riding the ranch when they come across a severely injured Cavalry officer who is able to get out that his unit needs help right before he dies. They end up finding a Cavalry united pinned down by a group of bandit who is lead by a man named Montana.

We learn that Candy literally grew up in a Cavalry unit and is known to many of the older officers. Also in the unit is the wife of the lead Officer Captain Jim Harris. It just turns out that Captain Harris's wife, Ann, is also the ex-wife of Candy.

During the story we learn that Candy had married Ann but her father, a Colonel, thought that Candy was not the best for his daughter. He sent Candy on patrols and then moved his daughter back east and annulled the marriage. Candy still has feeling for the Captain's wife. So we are placed in the middle of two men that love one woman but who will be the better man?

They needed a story for Candy and by golly the writers came up with a whopper. With very little known about Candy's early life the writers took all liberty into writing and inserting Candy. But overall this episode did provide suspense and interest that kept the viewer watching to the very end. That what all series strive for.
