i didn’t quite understand why Kyle sought Little Joe and how he knew of him. I can assume he had a relationship with his mother before she met Ben, but how did he know she had a son so many years later?

I also don’t quite know why he needed Joe. Kyle was able to do business in other cities by himself. I don’t see how this was different.
You know, I've never even thought about that, but it's a great point. And why did Kyle think that "Little Joe Cartwright" of all people would be able to influence the movers and shakers of Virginia City?

Kyle must have known Marie pretty well, since he had her picture. In fact, you would think Joe would have had a lot of suspicion about why he had that picture. I suppose in the present day it wasn't that big a deal, but back then it would have been pretty unusual for someone who wasn't a spouse, child, or intimate friend to have someone's picture.

I never really thought about it but you're correct. Pictures weren't as assessable back then the way they are today. The episode never really explained how he had Joe's mother's picture. They couldn't have been that close. :think
