  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Although early comments by Hannah about the women having the vote in Wyoming suggests that Curtis Wells may have been located in Wyoming Territory, the voice-overs refer to the times that Newt spent in Montana Territory.

    • Hannah's mother died two years prior to this episode taking place. Josiah was always worried that something would happen to his daughter.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Canadian actor Jaimz Woolvett was originally cast in the role of Call, fresh off the New Zealand based series White Fang, but even though his checks had stopped coming weeks earlier, White Fang producer Guy Mazzeo refused to allow Woolvett to take the role, insisting he was still until contract, and the producers had to go with second choice Scott Bairstow. In 1996, Woolvett, who had been offered $3.2 million to play Newt Call, won that amount in a lawsuit against Mazzeo, who successfully kept him from pursuing many career opportunities while still not paying him.
