In the scene where Mark and the Judge are riding together, and the Judge's horse stumbles - there is nothing but trees in the background. Mark dismounts, goes to the fallen judge, they talk for a moment - then you get a background shot showing the slope with the first season's stone wall in the background. Thanks Renewed Fan!
Did you notice that in the general store scene Mark is wearing his own Lucas-style shirt, the kind with frogs instead of buttons? Mark looks like a little version of his 'Pa.' Mark wears a bow tie along with it, which I don't think Lucas ever does. I wonder who thought up that shirt for Lucas--I've never seen frogs on men's shirts, except on Chinese shirts. Thanks Pete Villafea.!
