How to Rob a Bank in One Hard Lesson - S2-E2

Plot hole: Heyes convinces the deputy that they're not Heyes and Curry and rightfully pins the bank robbery on Harry, who forced him to break into the safe. But it had been previously stressed that only Heyes could have cracked that particular safe, something the governor knew. So the neatly tied-up ending doesn't really work. The governor would still know that Heyes (whose nitroglycerin method was based on a real bank robbery of the era) opened the safe.
