    This one had a little more sexual tension then the usual Lawman episode. There was the cutesy stuff between Dan and Lily. They haven't actually shown them dating yet, but their remarks seem to indicate that there is a mutual interest there. The scene where Johnny finds Chantay under his bed, and then keeps trying to cover himself, even though he's not really naked, was hilarious. Then when he got dressed and came over to Dan and Lily, Dan's reaction was just priceless. Johnny then takes Chantay back, and finds more trouble than he expected. Back then they couldn't not actually say rape, so they did a good job here of dancing aroudn the word, but still getting the point across. Johnny also did a good job of playing detective in this episode. It showed he has learned a lot from Dan. It was also sweet with Johnny promising to get Chantay all of the peppermints from that candy shop in Laramie, and her giving him a peck on the cheek. And in typical fashion, he gets out of there before things get too serious.moreless
