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

Quotes

George Hearst: [to Cy Tolliver] The Sheriff recently put me on notice. He is vigilant of my possible transgressions.
Seth Bullock: You sound drunk to me.
George Hearst: Whom are you addressing?
Seth Bullock: You. You sound drunk.
George Hearst: Do I?
[Seth nods]
George Hearst: Hmm. When I say, "Go fuck yourself, Sheriff," will you put that down to drunkenness or a high estimate of your athleticism?
Seth Bullock: Did you just tell me, "Fuck myself"?
George Hearst: I think I did. And to shut up, or I will quiet you myself.
Seth Bullock: You're under arrest.

On Par with "Sold Under Sin" and "Something Very Expensive"
19 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I never imagined this series (best show on TV, period) would match "Sold Under Sin" or "Something Very Expensive" in this young final season, but "A Two-Headed Beast" just put my butt in check, with a vengeance. I'm utterly speechless, so forgive the lack of a well-thought out analysis here. Deadwood's writers have once again raised the bar to unimaginable heights with this episode. The oft-referred to fight between Dan and the Captain is one of the most gruesome things I've seen on television. It reminded me of a bad car crash you'd pass on the highway- disturbing and tragic but you can't bring yourself to look away. Just downright frightening in every sense of the word. So much more worth writing about happened in this hour, but I literally can't compose the words, so I'll just leave it at that.
