Victor Jory returns in season 7's 'Fox, Hound and the Widow McCloud' as the same character.
An unusual episode in that all the regular cast members appear. However, the appearances of Elizabeth Grainger and Emmett Ryker are exceptionally brief and only cameos. The episode features mainly Trampas and the Virginian with Clay and Stacey Grainger in support.
Taking over for the ill and later deceased Charles Bickford with Season 6, episode 8 ("Bitter Autumn"), John McIntyre, as Clay Grainger, is listed in the opening credits as a "Special Guest Star", a billing he would receive until he became a regular cast member and replaced Bickford in the opening credits later in the season.
