    This was kind of a middle of the road episode. It wasn't really bad, but it wasn't really good either. The concept is unique with a prisoner wanting to collect the reward on himself. Did Gard actually think that was going to work? Johnny's presence was missed though it is always great seeing Chubby Johnson. He has been in a lot of westerns in his time, and always has good comedic timing. The whole story with Lily recognizing Gard from her past was kind of pointless just seemingly thrown out there to give her some input in the storyline, but didn't really have any meaning with regard to the final outcome.moreless
