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 »

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.
