Though in a way, that's exactly what is going on in 'Mirror Image' - the events in the mine keep playing out for Stawpah until Sam leaps in to save Tonchi & Pete.
That's a good point about Mirror Image. It just seemed odd to me that if they wanted to do a holiday show, they have the perfect film to emulate

On another note - in "Leap of Faith", Tony actually beat the death penalty because there weren't any witnesses (Father Mac admits he pretended to have seen it), and so was only ever convicted of the attempted murder of Father Pistano (Sam), which actually DID have a witness.
