A very sad conclusion of one of the greatest characters of Deadwood
29 July 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A very sad conclusion of one of the greatest characters of Deadwood. Only four episodes, but he won't ever be forgotten. This is a very important episode which sets up most of the characters. Mainly Jane, she goes downhill from here and turns into a depressing uncontrolable drunk.

This episode dealt with the aftermath of Brom's death. He's gone and Al had to keep Alma happy, but she is not numb. She hires Wild Bill to find out what happened to her husband. Wild Bill had two very memorable lines in this episode, 'Listen to the thunder' and 'Let me go to hell the way I want to'. He was a good, but tragic man wasted on a cruel world.

Meanwhile Ellsworth confesses to Dan, he saw it and now Dan has to decide what to do about it. Ellsworth is a great man and everybody loves him, especially Trixie.

This episode also introduces Andy Cramed, new in camp but deeply ill. He brings a plague into the camp. 'Here Was A Man' concludes with Jack, a whimpering fool shooting Bill in the head from behind. A very sad ending to a once powerful man.
