I have to admit, the first time I saw this episode, I wasn't sure that Johnny Mule was going to be innocent.

The tension between Hoss and Candy as they disagree on the verdict is well done. But I do find Hoss's behavior when he speaks to Joe and Pa and asks them what they have to say about his decision a bit un-Hoss-like.

I guess I missed it, but how was it that neither Cleve nor his brother Virgil knew that it was Marcy who killed their father? Were neither son at home when she did it just after Johnny Mule was there? I noticed the official cast list has Tom as Deputy Sheriff, but they call him sheriff in the episode. Do we ever get to see Roy together with all his deputies?
