According to a book on "Gunsmoke"'s history, Amanda Blake saw a draft of the script during the 1973-74 season and refused point-blank to do this episode, which has Kitty getting raped, beaten, exposed in the desert and getting into a cat fight with another woman. Producer John Mantley dug in his heels and planned the episode for the following season - without Blake, who left "by mutual consent." The role was not rewritten and the character was Kitty in all but name.
