Storyline

Aunt Lou's long-lost son, Odell, arrives in Deadwood from Liberia, but she soon attempts to orchestrate his immediate departure. Bullock and Swearengen contemplate a preemptive strike against Hearst, whose ire has been inflamed overnight. Alma's bad habits lose her the bank services of Trixie and, possibly, the attentions of her husband. Her indisposition also makes her vulnerable to Heart. Joanie offers Jane a place to stay, again.

Quotes

E.B. Farnum: Hearst... is he Caesar? To have fights to the death for diversion, murder his workers at whim, smash passages in the fucking wall? A man of less wealth would be in fucking restraints!
Al Swearengen: We are in the presence of the new.
E.B. Farnum: Fuck the fucking new! Jesus Christ, Al... is it over for us here?
Al Swearengen: Go back to the hotel, E.B.
E.B. Farnum: Save us. Think of something!

Gerald McRaney is extraordinary
5 May 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Having already done a number of reviews of individual episodes in this extraordinary series, I intend something unusual in this particular epistle.

Among a long list of superlative performances, is it possible to focus on one that stands out from all the others? The answer is yessir, and I respectfully draw the viewer's attention to the performance, in this episode, of Gerald McRaney.

McRaney is one of those TV character actors you have probably seen a dozen times but may not remember. Up until this point I thought his best work had been in TBAA (and related spinoffs) but his work in Deadwood reaches new highs.

There is a scene at approximately the 23:00 minute mark in this episode where his character, already irritated at spending a night in jail, finds that the adult son of his Negro cook has joined his mother in the hotel (a hotel owned by McRaney's character) without prior permission.

In a startling scene that boils with undercurrents of stark racism, McRaney delivers to the young may what superficially seems like a pleasant welcome to the inn, but as the camera moves closer and closer to a closeup on McRaney's eyes, the viewer suddenly gets an entirely different interpretation of what is actually going on.

I repeat: McRaney does a scene almost entirely with his eyes, and it is a stunner. That is the quality of the acting he brought to this series, and that is the quality of the acting I wanted to observe in this review.
