At the onset of this episode when Lucas and Mark are captured by the vaqueros, during their capture, the main vaquero grabs Lucas' rifle away from him and ultimately hits Lucas on the left side of his throat with the stock of the rifle. Lucas falls to the ground, grimacing in pain. A few scenes later, when Lucas is struggling, it's the right side of Lucas' throat that is very bruised and injured, not the left side. See more
