Will's mother attempts to get a blood sample from Bandit. She wants to
have it tested to prove that the horse belongs to her. Dori and Jim promise
to fight her every step of the way. Caitlin, however, takes matters into
her own hands and hides Bandit at an abandoned corral near the river. Bandit
gets loose during a thunderstorm and is nowhere to be found when Caitlin returns
the next day. Caitlin and Will begin to search for Bandit. They find him
trapped on the rocks near the flooded river. Will and Caitlin rescue Bandit
but Caitlin is nearly swept away in the attempt. Will eventually decides to
let Caitlin keep Bandit. Caitlin decides not to be adopted by the Lowes because
she wants to keep the name that she has, Caitlin Seeger.
1. Will confronts Caitlin at school and shouts, "You stole my horse!"
When Caitlin declares that it is her horse, Will responds, "Yeah, well if
you don't give him back, I'll have you arrested! I'm sure you'll be all right.
I've heard you're used to jails!" Griffen steps in and tells Will to take
that statement back. When Will refuses to take the statement back, Griffen
and Will begin to fight. Caitlin breaks up the fight shouting, "Knock it
off!" She says to Will, "Your fight is with me!" She says to Griffen, "Are
you nuts? I don't need you or anyone else to take care of me, alright?"
Griffen is confused and doesn't understand why Caitlin doesn't appreciate
what he did.
2. Jim has a talk with Griffen about his fight. Jim says, "I'd be a lousy
father if I supported you on this." Griffen responds, "Dad, I was defending
her!" Jim says, "Really? Was she in physical danger? Maybe you just lost
3. Caitlin and Will have a talk after they rescue Bandit from the flooded
river. When Will says that the blood test will prove that the horse is his,
Caitlin responds, "It won't prove anything." Will says, "My father gave me
that colt before he died. When he left it was like all the light went out
in the world. I figured that if I could find him, maybe my dad would come
back too, you know? But I never found him. Until now." Caitlin says, "Ever
since my mom died, I've had nothing of my own. When I came here it was completely
different than anything I've ever known. I saved Bandit's life. And he
saved mine. I love him more than anything in the world." Caitlin says that
she doesn't know what to do. Will says, "If we take him, I don't think he'd
ever be ours. Bandit belongs to you. Here. Take him. Happy birthday,
