Trivia

The character name "Reiko O'Hara" may seem intended to be incongruous, but, in fact, "Ohara" (without the apostrophe) is a not uncommon Japanese family name (actor Pat Morita starred as police lieutenant Ohara (1987) in the eponymous TV series). "-hara" is an ending shared by a fair number of Japanese names (e.g.: "Fujihara" or "Sinohara"). See more »

Goofs

When West chases the man with the facial scar out of the martial arts training facility West's horse is missing. Both actors run over the area where the horse had been left. See more »

Japanese adventure

After Serbia, France, Russia, Mexico, Hawaii and many more countries and territories which whom our team has to take care of, in the diplomatic, cultural or political way, this is now Japan that it is about here. And which means Japan, means of course samurai, the most emblematic picture of this country, but also the most testosterone like element, which for this kind of series, is more adequate than lotus flower, house of bamboo with geishas galore...But after all, this doesn't prevent that. Unlike the previous episode, which was very unusual for the show, because one hundred percent western, this one gets back in the atmosphere of W W WEST series. Watch out for the lead villain, you'll get a surprise.
