For the show's seventh season only, its length was expanded from 60 to 90 minutes and was filmed in color.
Robert Fuller joins the series in this episode as scout Cooper Smith.
Barbara Stanwyck would reprise her character of Kate Crawley later in Season 7 in The Kate Crawley Story.
This episode takes place in 1868.
Ray Danton and Myron Healey, who both seemingly made careers out of playing heavies, play sympathetic roles for a change in this episode.
Barnaby: (about Kate Crawley) She must really be something. Everytime you mention her name someone gets mad.
Hale: (to Barnaby) For every Indian you can show me in this part of the United States I'll show you a steamboat sailing across the prairie. There just aren't any Indians around here anymore. (cut to two Indians stealing horses)
Kate: What did you mean when you said you'd go back afterwards?
Molly: After I finish what I came here to do.
Kate: What's that?
Molly: Kill a man.
Kate: (to Molly) You're full of surprises, aren't you?
Kate: There's a lot you don't know.
Molly: Look at my face. That's all there is to know.
Doc: (to Molly) Are you really his wife?
Hale: She's really his wife.
Doc: Won't that blow the cork off the bottle?
Molly: You made an Indian out of me now I'm gonna make an Indian out of your daughter.
Coop: Boy, if I let you up, will you listen to me?
Rome: All right, but I won't believe a thing you say.
