Did You Know?


Although the name of the territory in which this episode takes place is never mentioned, Colorado was the only state admitted to the union during Grant's presidency, with the proclamation being signed on 2 August 1876. The next states to be admitted were North and South Dakota, on 2 November 1889, twelve years after Grant left office (and four years after his death). It's unlikely that politicians in Dakota Territory would be anticipating statehood that far in advance. The last territorial governor of Colorado was John Long Routt, appointed by President Grant on 29 March 1875; he also served as the first state governor until 14 January 1879. See more »


When West and Gordon use the tunnel to arrest the Governor, the explosions in the tunnel that were supposed to kill them apparently block it off, as Gordon says, "Well, there goes that as an exit." Yet, after arresting the Governor, they leave the mansion through the tunnel. See more »


Zeke Montgomery: I am the power, I warn you, not Brubaker! Me! You fools - Brubaker was nothing! It was me! His ideas were mine, his speeches were mine, everything he did I was responsible for, me! Come back! Come back! I will lead you, came back to me!

Zeke Montgomery: It was meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Zeke Montgomery: It *was* me.
Jim West: Yeah, we know.

Another interesting story

What I find unusual here is that you have a kind of climax which look like a MISSION IMPOSSIBLE episode ending, with a rather unexpected fate for the villain. Besides this, nothing really special. The usual W W WEST procédures.
