In an earlier episode, Blood Fury, mention is made of Mrs. MacWherter. However, in this episode, Mrs. MacWherter no long exists, no explanation, and Wendell is courting Sally.
Willie and his father are preparing to board a steamer to go to France when Jack comes across them. Willie says to Jack, "I knew you wouldn't leave without saying goodbye." WILLIE is the one who is leaving, not Jack.
As Jack and Clive are tracking the outlaws, Jack comments that the rain washed away the tracks, but finds blood on the ground. Wouldn't the rain have washed away the blood, as well?
In this episode, Jack says that during Bull Run, they took a lot of Union prisoners, and that one of them was from North Carolina. North Carolina was a Confederate state, not a Union state.
Jack and Arthur Harrington are seen in a buckboard, and Jack is driving a team of matched grays, but by the time they reach the ranch, one of the grays has turned into a paint.
In a scene that was edited from the Family Channel airing, two men are seen loading the caskets carrying the bodies of the Pinkerton agents onto a wagon. The ease with which the men are lifting the caskets make it apparent that the boxes are empty.
When Jack makes his horse rear to unsettle the Pinkerton, he is seen wearing handcuffs. The cuffs disappear when he jumps onto the Pinkerton's horse, and then reappear when both men are wrestling over the pistol on the ground.
Jack is accused of having been present at the James farm when Pinkerton agent "John Witcher" was murdered. In reality, the agent's name was Joseph Witcher.
When Bennett and Craddock finish putting the "No Guns Past This Point" sign up, Bennett says that it is to stop people from bringing guns into Canada, and Craddock says that he'll still allow guns in the US. Well the sign is facing the wrong way, as people can only see it when they are leaving Canada.
On the DVD of the Complete Series, this episode is presented after "Killer With A Smile", thus returning the episode to its correct chronological order.
This episode is further evidence that the episodes were not aired in the proper order. At the beginning of this episode, it is stated that President Garfield has been assassinated, but later in the season, in "Killer With a Smile", Garfield, alive and well, passes through Bordertown on a tour of the west!
As Marie rides up to the marshal he tells her to "Catch yer breath Marie". Why is she out of breath? She hasn't been running, she's on horseback.
As Bat is riding into town, a wedding ring is plainly visible on his hand, obviously belonging to the actor. Still, it creates some continuity problems, for Bat did not marry until 1891, ten years after this episode takes place.
When Jack and Clive are saddling their horses to go after Bat, Clive remarks that his cinch has been cut. Jack says that his has been cut too. Jack's cinch is hanging in full view of the camera, intact and undamaged.
In this episode, Jack asks Wendell to help him create a will, and as he signs his name to it, he says, "Thanks to Marie, I can do this now."
As of this episode, it had not yet been established that Jack was illiterate. That came out three episodes later, in Craddock vs Bennett, which leads me to think that these episodes were aired in a different order from which they were filmed.
When Jack looks through his field glasses at the boy, you see a full length shot of him seated near the Indian's campfire. But when Jack hands the field glasses to Clive, we see a close-up of the boy's face. Did Jack's field glasses have a zoom lense?
When Barry Joe is at the gallows the camera zooms in on Craddock & Bennett, Craddock removes his hat.
The camera pans back out and Jack is now wearing his hat.
Another close-up of the lawmen shows Jack with no hat!
In this episode Jack Craddock reads a letter (very well, considering that he was reading a portion of a torn-up letter) intended for Corporal Bennett. In later episodes it is established that Jack is unable to read, and usually relies on Bennett or someone else to read stuff for him.
