  • Trivia

    • This episode should have been a standout in the season. In the scene where Adam is gifted a gun by Joaquin, it was actually re-written to show that Adam, at age 21, already knew how to handle a gun and demonstrated his prowess to Joaquin by effortlessly picking off the cans on the fence in rapid succession. The series producer, Beth Sullivan, opted to go with the original version which shows a very naive Adam struggling to use the weapon. This became one of the most criticized episodes among true Bonanza fans as many believe that Adam was always the essence of strength.
