A Wild West sheriff resigns and is kidnapped to another town, where a malevolent Judge tries to force him to drop his new pacifist principles.
This episode provides examples of:
- All Just a Dream: The whole episode is revealed to have been the result of a drug-induced hallucination.
- Blackmail: The Judge blackmails the "Sheriff" into staying to protect Kathy.
- Cowboy Episode: This episode takes place in an apparent Elseworld Wild West setting. Number Six is a sheriff who turns in his badge and gun and tries to leave town. It turns out to be a Virtual Reality Interrogation created in-universe with a stage set and hallucinogenic drugs.
- Geographic Flexibility: The Village apparently has a full mockup of a Wild West town, within walking distance, which previous episodes had never hinted at.
- Jump Scare: Number 8 does this to The Girl.
- Kangaroo Court: The Judge sentencing Kathy for helping a Prisoner escape.
- Insane Troll Logic: Although no crime was committed (the prisoner was under "protective custody"), Kathy is liable "because she didn't know that."
- Kubrick Stare: The Kid/Number 8.
- Lost in Character: In a rare variation, both Numbered agents return to their characters after the experiment is over.
- Nice Hat: The Kid's top hat.
- Out-of-Genre Experience: The series' plot is transplanted onto a Western setting.
- Psychopathic Manchild: The Kid. Naturally.
- Quick Draw
- Showdown at High Noon: Naturally.
- Special Edition Title: The episode completely replaces Number Six's usual resignation and kidnapping with a Wild West equivalent.
- Stalker with a Crush: The Kid to Kathy.
- Title Drop
- Virtual Reality: Not quite, but this is as close as the 1960s could get: lots of hallucinogenic drugs and paper cutouts.
