  • Paladin is asked to find Chaplain April, who, in an earlier episode, helped him when the chips were down. Paladin enlists the help of a former prisoner who is in April's moral debt, and they go out in the cold winter snow to rescue their friend.

    This episode would make an instant Paladin addict of anyone. Confronted with a mountain covered with heavy snow, freezing temperatures and a bad to the bone bad guy, Paladin and friend set out to rescue Chaplain April, succeeding despite the odds. When the former prisoner/friend is shot by the badguy, Chaplain April responds by helping Paladin rescue him and the bad guy, who pretends to be suffering from exposure. Chaplain April is an easy mark for someone in need, and although he, himself, has been exposed to the elements and is not well, works side-by-side with Paladin to get them all off the mountain. Paladin feels a loyalty to Chaplain April that he reserves for few men. As the story unfolds, you come to understand what sort of man could elicit such loyalty in a hero. This is an excellent tale well told.
