    This was a good episode. It was a surpise for me to see Ray Teal in a serious role, because when I watched him on Maverick and Cheyenne, he tended to play more of a comedy character. He was very good as Judge Whitehall, and really made a coolheaded defense of his character being known as the Hanging Judge. Whoever, the guy was that played Dexter really came across as a vindictive nutjob. His father commits a murder, but yet its the judge's fault for hanging him. Tandice realized he was just doing his job, but until the end Dexter would not accept it. Dan was really a back ground player to the guest stars in the episode, just essentially being there to get in a few brave words, and then arrest and/or shoot the bad guy. Johnny appear briefly in the beginning and the ending scenes. Lily only appears in the opening scene. With him having the last episode off, and the way it started, I thought maybe it might be about Johnny putting the moves on Tandis, but aw well.moreless
