Expected, but Surprising
15 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We know when we hear about the deed just who is guilty, yet we're not sure that matter will ever be resolved. A lawman's life is tough. He has to serve an eviction notice even if he doesn't have all the facts. "Evict them now, figure it out later." that seemed to be the motto in this episode.

My favorite scene in this episode is Kitty and Doc's sitting on the stairs together. In Season 1, Kitty is so pretty and young. Like the first episode, we get a hint that Kitty and Matt have a thing going. Kitty's comment of "Why don't you ever tell me down in the daytime." is a classic line. The whole scene is classic, actually, since it nicely sets up the show for future episodes. I haven't figure out who my favorite character is yet. I like them all for different reasons...
