  • James is shot during a bank robbery and lapses into a coma. Charles, Mr. Edwards and Albert track down the robbers.

    I would have enjoyed this episode more if they had focused on the drama of James, his operation, the reaction of Caroline and the girls when they heard the news. Instead, the first part of this episode focused on trailing the bandits. It would have been better if the robbers had been caught in the first half of the episode, and the rest focused on the issues above. The familial drama would have been more intense building up to the incredible part two episode which I gave a 10. The way the first part of this turned out was nothing more than a Western filled with outlaws and saloons. It misfires terribly.
