  • A young indian boy prays for a spirit helper which coincidentally comes in the form of Caine. They eventually catch up to a group of men who pillaged his parents. In the end, the boy must make a choice if taking a life in revenge is really worth it.

    A well thought episode as well as it is very cool to see and hear a young Don Johnson as the guest star. It definitely shows his versitality before he ever got the Miami Vice gig. It also has some good kung fu scenes in it with both one on one as well as multiple subject battles. It's a great reminder of how revenge is actually a double-edged sword (as said in a quote) and that killing the one who wronged you isn't always the answer to get satisfaction. I also noticed in the flashbacks of how Caine's parents were killed, the general responsible, is played by the same actor who played a theif in an earlier episode. Definitely check this episode out if you can!
