    • When this episode was first shown, before it began they showed a few scenes that showed how Gillespie who has been kidnapped in the previous season's finale, was released and would meet with everyone and Virgil would say they don't know what happened or why?

    • Interstingly, this was the first episode broadcast for the season. Executive producer, and star, Caroll O' Connor felt the issue was so powerful that he decided to lead off with this episode rather than the continuation of the storyline of Gillespie's kidnapping.
