    This was a good episode, but not great. It Edd Byrnes makes a guest appearance as Joe Knox, and does a decent job. To me, he was a little too wooden at times. I liked the story of him taking care of Dory, because of the guilt over Bob's death. There were some sweet moments that would have been better if they would have let him show a little more emotion. Dan came across almost like Sherlock Holmes in the scene where he explains to the doctor why Joe is lying about who he is. The shootout with Dan, Johnny, and Joe against the gang of outlaws was very well done and exciting. Lily was underutilized in this episode. She was more or less just there. The closing seen where Joe is lying in bed after getting shot, and Dory now looking after him was a nice twist.moreless
