Did You Know?


The scene in which Chuck Norris is staked out, spread-eagle style, to be tortured by scorpions has two antecedents. In the 1959 "Timbuktu," a bare-chested Victor Mature is staked out in similar fashion, only his torture is to be administered by a venomous tarantula. Just as Norris is eventually rescued by his horse, so too was a bare-chested Richard Boone rescued by his horse after he'd been staked out and left to die by Indians in a 1957 episode of "Have Gun Will Travel" titled "The Yuma Treasure."

Alex Cahill tells Victor LaRue she has recorded the phone-call between them and is going to use it in court as evidence. Federal law requires that at least one party taking part in the call must be notified of the recording. For example, it would be illegal to record, without notification, the phone calls of people who come into a place of business and ask to use the telephone. Several states require that all parties consent when one party wants to record a telephone conversation. So, what she has done means the recording cannot be entered as evidence. See more »

User Reviews

One of the most intense episodes.
10 May 2013 | by jsn_hylndSee all my reviews

This is one of those episodes that really keeps you watching all the way through because it was that damn good.

I have to say that Wayne Pere who played Victor Larue was great at making you hate him and he delivered a terrifying and sinister performance. It really felt like Walker and Alex were going to die at the hands of Larue but of course Walker came through and gave one of the most satisfying beat downs ever given to a villain.

This episode featured a return of Victor Larue from the 2nd season of Walker Texas Ranger. "spoilers" Victor Larue is a vicious Criminal who in his last appearance on Walker Texas Ranger kidnapped Alex Cahill and some other innocent people for money and in the climax of the episode Larue stuck Alex and the others in a car compactor in which they were almost killed but walker saved them and took down Larue. In this episode Larue gets released from prison on a technicality and begins taunting Alex and Walker just waiting for the right time to extract his revenge on them.

Eventually Larue finds Walker's ranch where Walker was hiding her and ties up Alex and knocks Walker out cold. While Alex was tied up on the bed Larue took Walker out to the badlands and tied him up but Larue doesn't stop there seeing as he had a jar full of scorpions reserved especially for Walker. Larue then opens the jar of scorpions and pours them onto Walker's body. Walker's horse Amigo soon springs Walker from his predicament and Larue returns to his captive Alex. Larue then attempts to get freaky with Alex but Alex's knight in shining armor returns and gives a struggling beat down to Larue which ended in Larue getting kicked out of Walker's window that he is going to have to replace. Larue gets sent back to prison and Walker and Alex hopefully got it on.
