Hal Williams returns as Caleb Brown, also L. Q. Jones
28 August 2010 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

Season 3 Episode 19- Hal Williams, Mae Mercer, George Spell, and Ta Ronce Allen all return as the Brown family, introduced in episode 16 "The Well," the second season opener. Speeding through the final 8 entries, Caine has made a temporary stopover from his destination of Lordsburg, the home of Serenity Johnson (the plot of the following story "Ambush"), to visit Caleb Brown and his family, only to learn that their son Daniel has been kidnapped, along with his friend Jimmy Cooper (Craig Hundley). Major Clarke Bealson (L.Q. Jones), leader of a small band of former Confederate raiders, blames Jimmy's father, Doctor Cooper (Charles Aidman), for the deaths of his wife and son, during Sherman's march through Georgia, killed by Confederate gunfire that failed to hit its proper target. Forced to pay ransom for the boys' safe return, the doctor recognizes the Major's band as "worse than Quantrill's." A straightforward chase melodrama, there are moments that recall the period racism of its predecessor, as when the sheriff (Charles Haid) refuses to take a hand when Caleb first reports the disappearance of his son; he later changes his tune after he learns that Doctor Cooper's son was also kidnapped. Also, the doctor's housekeeper (Anne Seymour) would rather dismiss the 'colored man' and the Chinaman, despite their obvious worry, before her employer dresses her down in their presence (she does bring them the ransom note left by one of Bealson's men). L. Q. Jones again displays a despicable villain, if a bit less vicious than his previous appearance in episode 4 "An Eye for an Eye." In his rush to Lordsburg, Caine is absent from the final dinner scene, with only five more broadcasts to come. Next up- "Ambush"
