Had series finales been a staple in 1972, this would have been it. Heyes and Curry get a telegram from Wyoming sheriff Lom Trevors that the Governor has at long last given them amnesty, and rush to meet the sheriff (Western veteran John Russell takes over from Mike Road, who had played the role in the first two seasons and still voiced it in the opening credits). But the day the amnesty came through is also the day the Governor was removed from office (as a territorial governor, he was appointed by the President -- when the Executive Mansion was occupied by a President of a different party, in this case Grover Cleveland, he appointed one of his own party men to the post). The new Governor, George W. Baxter, is a friend of Trevors and agrees to keep the amnesty on the table, and maybe approve it if the boys will track down his missing daughter. Our heroes succeed, but return to find that Baxter has been removed from office ("Seems he fenced in some Federal land"). Trevors doesn't know ...

While riding off the Kid tells Hannibal he "can be replaced". Of course he WAS replaced when Ben Davis took over the role of Hannibal after the suicide of Peter Duel. See more
In the opening credits, Heyes and Curry discuss their dubious amnesty with an unseen Lom Trevors, voice provided by Mike Road. (This is the sequence filmed late in the previous season when Roger Davis became Hannibal Heyes, and Road's dubbed-in voice is used for the entire series.) At the end of this story, Heyes and Curry exactly replicate the conversation with Trevors - but now he's played by John Russell. (Russell would play Lom Trevors a second time in the last show filmed, "Witness to a Lynching" - and again the opening-credit voice would belong to Road.) See more
