Trivia

At the beginning of the episode, Del is pen-shopping in a gift shop called "O. Henry". O. Henry is the pen name of short-story author William Sydney Porter, after whom James Purcell's character is named. See more »

Goofs

William Porter drives a 1972 Chevy Impala in the car chase. At the beginning of the chase scene, the bottom of the car's grille is straight, but for the rest of the sequence it alternates between straight and warped from shot to shot. See more »

Quotes

William Porter: You want to kill me Jimmy? You want to do that? Go ahead.

Due South at its best
8 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the episodes that combines all the aspects that made this such a wonderful series: credible (for television, anyway) crime plot, great cast which allows wonderful character studies (one feels depth of character from the stars to the smallest of parts), magical realism that seems perfectly "natural", sly literary references that give a chuckle to those who get them but do not alienate or lessen the impact for those who do not), wonderful eclectic music choices, and that wonderful quirky sense of humour that manages to poke fun at everyone. Paul Haggis' scripts always impressed me with their ability to juggle all those aspects and this episode was one of the best.
