  • Trivia

    • Unecessary apostrophes on welcome Barkleys sign hanging across town street in beginning and end of episode.

    • Goof: When Heath shoots the gunman by the bridge he is not wearing Tom's boots(and his horse is not on the buggy), but when they get back to Stockton he is now wearing the boots. He must have put them on while driving the buggy!

    • Goof: After Heath rescues Victoria from the town of Strawberry, they are in the carriage headed home with NO horse tied to the carriage (I guess Heath must have walked to Strawberry). But then, when they get back to Stockton, there is his horse, tied to the carriage. A slight oversight...
