Poor Candy! The wanderer considers settling down with he new family, the Cartwrights nearby, and what happens? He falls for a woman being blackmailed by a crooked marshal!

Tisha Sterling and David Canary had some nice chemistry going in this one.

The scenes between Joe and Candy are wonderful - the earliest where we see how they've bonded as friends and how easily that bond can be tested when a woman is tossed into the mix. It's the first time we see just how far Ben will go to let Candy know he belongs on the Ponderosa, too.

Not gonna lie, when I first watched this one, it brought me to tears. If anyone deserved a happy ending; it was Candy.
I have changed my signature so many times that even I'm getting sick of seeing what it is changed to.

Just watched this for the first time and I have to rate it one of my top 5 Bonanza episodes. It's emotional on so many levels. This is the first time you see true affection on the programme which was nice and romantic. It is a good Candy Episode which really if you hadn't already you would fall in love with him.

I agree. This is a really good Candy episode. Tisha loved Candy but was being forced into a relationship with Joe by her cruel uncle. When she fought him, he killed her. Just like all of the girls a Cartwright wanted to marry. :sob
