I thought that this one was, by far, the worst one I've ever seen. Ramon Bieri I first seen guest starring in a different series, and to see him in this one was just plain ridiculous. All the actors did was talk in riddles. I watched it anyway, but it was rather confusing because of how cryptic the lines were. It was just awful! I read somewhere that the writers, since it was close to the last episode, just took bits and pieces and shoved everything together.
Wait a minute, wait a minute. What you're saying is that at your age, you don't know the difference between a girl and a horse?

I actually like this episode because Duffy is an unusual character. But the storytelling is a bit jerky.

This was actually the last episode filmed, so it's makes sense that they just threw together some of the scenes. They chose to switch the order aired with "The Hunter", because it at least that episode centered on a Cartwright.
