         Written by:
 John Hawkins
         Directed by: Leon Benson

         When on a cattle drive on Ponderosa land, the Cartwrights and Candy find a dying cavalry officer on the trail.  With his last breath, he asks them to go help his commanding officer, Captain Harris.  Riding atop a slope, they see Captain Harris and his soldiers fighting off Mexican bandits who are trying to steal the four kegs of gold hidden in the Army ambulance.  The Cartwrights and Candy cut right between the soldiers and the Mexican bandits, in a spectacular chase through a little valley and wind up at a high and rocky outcrop, taking cover and assisting the soldiers.

         Candy soon gets a few surprises: the head of the outlaw gang, Angel Montana is an old childhood friend, of Mexican/Indian descent.  That's nothing compared to the other surprises: Sergeant Ordy, who raised him while he was a boy and his former wife, Ann, who is now Mrs. Harris.  The Sergeant explains Candy's youth to the Cartwrights; Candy and Ann grew up together when their fathers were in the Army.  Immediately after their marriage, Ann's father sent Candy away and had the marriage annuled.  He felt Candy wasn't good enough for Ann.

         To impress Ann, Candy sneaks into the enemy camp to steal water and ammunition, using a trick his old friend once taught him.  Afraid of competition from Candy, Captain Harris tries the same mission, and, not knowing Candy's helpful tricks, is captured by the Mexicans.  We get some insight into Candy's past.  Candy's father was a war hero who died when Candy was nine; and his mother died of "loneliness and the frontier life", when Candy was only four.  To rescue Captain Harris from the bandits, Candy and Sergeant Ordy, who is a expert demolitions man, must come up with a sure plan or they will never get out alive.  Third episode filmed for the tenth season.
