Ray says that the six shooters in the Old West at this time were actually 5 shooters because they had hammer blocks. This is incorrect. The revolvers at this time did not have hammer blocks to prevent the hammer from hitting and firing a bullet accidentally if a gun was dropped. The guns did hold 6 bullets but the chamber under the hammer was usually left empty to avoid accidental discharge so most guns were loaded only with 5 bullets.. See more »


Leonard Snart: So, basically, we're hiding out in the Old West in hoping your boogeymen don't find us here.
Mick Rory: The Hunters aren't boogeymen. And you better hope they don't find us.
Ray Palmer: Well, at least not until I get a chance to "punch a few doggies" or "bust a bronco" or two. Not that I condone to animal cruelty. It's just I watched a lot of Westerns.

With the Time Masters after the crew of the Wave Rider, the crew found a home in 19th century western United States and turned out a slightly more entertaining episode than in the weeks past.

Taking a science fiction television show/film into the west is a difficult task as the only real time I remember it being successful is with Firefly. So I had little to no confidence that this episode would do anything to further my interest in the show. Although it did have its entertaining moments, it once again suffered from the overly filler feel to the story. Why is it that Vandal Savage has only been in around 5 episodes? It's blatantly obvious that the writers were forced into writing 16 episodes for CW when the show was much better off on a 8- 10 episode run.

With that said, I enjoyed the presence of Johnathon Schaech as Jonah Hex. He doesn't get a ton to do, but he brought a different dynamic to a show that needed something to keep my interest. If they decide to shift the cast around next year, I would welcome Hex into the equation. As convenient as it was that they ended up in the same town as Hex, it was even more improbable that they ended up curing HG Wells of tuberculosis. First Bill Gates and now HG Wells? Perhaps the show is trying to be a little too clever.

Speaking of which, I'm really over any of the characters trying to fix something that may affect the future. Hasn't Stein been watching the implications each of his crew mates has made when they try stunts like that? I just don't like to see rehashed story lines.

Kendra and Sara went on their mini trip as the former apparently ran into her former self coincidentally. Yep, yet another 'random run in' for the crew. Anyways, this episode did little to further the plot at all or my interest, but it had its moments, and it was at least watchable television.

+Jonah Hex

+Different setting helped give some life to the show

-Rehashed arcs

-A little too many coincidences
