Full Recap and images Coming soon
Lucan rescues a lonely boy from falling to his death off a bridge, and the spectacle is televised. The boy grows attached to him and Lucan begins work for the family’s Kennel. He is curious about the over-protective father and all the precautions he takes to stay isolated. The television broadcast of Lucan’s rescue brings danger to the boy’s family.
The Pariah was another favorite episode. I enjoyed Lucan’s interactions with the young boy, especially when he helped him fit in and avoid bullies by reasoning from nature. I liked the daring bridge rescue at the outset. The show featured good stunt climbing. The plot twist regarding the family was intriguing.
