Did You Know?


April Curtis, Bonnie Barstow's replacement, is introduced in this episode but is not explained why she is there. In reality, Patricia McPhearson, who played Bonnie, was written out due to disagreements with the producers but with lobbying by fans, David Hasselhoff (Michael Knight) and Edward Mulhare (Devon Miles), Bonnie was written back in. While April's departure wasn't explained, Bonnie's return appeared as returning from a university where she had been studying although this isn't exactly explained in the episode (Knight of the Drones Part 1 from season 3) where she was persuaded by Michael to return to the Foundation.

When K.I.T.T. scanned Goliath for weaknesses, he could only find one "vulnerable" spot - the hitch pin - that was later attacked with the laser. Yet he was able to use his laser on the rear loading doors on the trailer to weld them shut - how could the laser melt the doors if they were fitted with the secret impregnable material that made Goliath invulnerable?

Elizabeth Knight: I believe you two already know each other?
Devon Miles: Yes. It's been quite some time. Before your African experience.
Garthe Knight: You know you're amazingly like my late father. Perhaps that's why I dislike you so.
Devon Miles: Garthe, I came here to reason with you and your mother.
Garthe Knight: It's too late for reason, Mr. Miles. It's too late for anything but war. Our victory, your defeat. And you will be defeated. You, the Foundation for Law and Government and Michael Knight. Especially Michael Knight.
