Storyline

Enabled by Leon, Alma reverts to her bad habits, though she's able to get Merrick to endorse her bank's liquidity during a time of crisis. Swearengen, still trying to decipher Hearst's intentions, finally finds use for E.B. after a long chill. Steve and Hostetler work out the arrangements by which the livery will change hands, but all's not ending well. Dority rises to Captain Turner's challenge, driving Hearst to the Bella Union, where Bullock hands him an earful. Written by WyattJones

One of the best episodes ever....
30 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When the song that played over the end credits, Bama Stuarts "I'm Coming Home", I had a very bittersweet feeling.. This episode showed that anybody, even very powerful, brutal, men... have their limits.. Everyone can break.. From Steve the drunk and Hostetlers situation, to Dan and Captain Turners brutal fight to the finish.. Men have their limits.. Dan is visibly very shaken, and we never see him like this... he is actually afraid... and saddend by what occurs... Wonderful acting by W. Earl Brown. Stunt coordinator Alan Graf as Captain Turner, George Hearts number one thug, also delivered far above par in his small, yet interesting role.. For once someone bigger and scarier and with a worse reputation has come to the town of Deadwood... and I am not just talking about the Captain Turner/Dan situation, but also the George Hearst/Al Swearengen situation as well... Al and Dan may be perhaps thinking they have met their match? But regardless, neither would ever back down from a fight..Dan literally in this case... Check this one out... its wonderful...... also learned that next fight I get in I should cover my whole body in a greasy lubricant of some kind.. LOL.. Enjoy.
