Episode Summary

EDIT
Homeland
AIRED:
Carlos is overjoyed and Ben and his sons are amazed when Carlos beautiful and spirited eighteen-year-old sister, Isabella, appears at what until recently had been the Rivera family's ranch. Carlos had presumed she'd died in a fire in Mexico. Isabella is overjoyed at being reunited with the brother she'd feared had died in the Mexican-American war, but she's also heartbroken to learn that her former home has been sold to Margaret Davis as a war reparation. Since she's now homeless, Ben takes Isabella into the already-crowded Ponderosa, but events take a dismaying turn when a sheriff from Texas arrives in town on the trail of a "killer" and discovers that Isabella rode in on the murdered victim's horse. The sheriff threatens to arrest Isabella, but Ben takes responsibility for her custody, offering to stand trial for whatever crime, if any, the sheriff decides to try her for if she flees. Fearful for Isabella's life, Isabella and Carlos do flee, but when they learn what Ben has done, they return to town. When they arrive, Carlos steps forward and confesses to the murder before Isabella can protest. Now the sheriff intends to extradite both Carlos and Ben, but in the end, Isabella stands up at their trial and explains that she killed the man in self-defense after he raped her. Carlos and Ben go free, and Margaret, now contrite and sympathetic to Isabella's ordeal, takes Isabella into her home, as "living at the Ponderosa with six men is no place for a lady."moreless
