A cryptic note delivered by Captain Turner tips off Swearengen to another bloody incident at the Gem; later, Hearst makes his intentions known in a more straightforward message. While Jane finds a captive audience for her oratory skills, the candidates for Mayor and Sheriff aren't as fortunate. Alma's health raises the issue of Sofia's stewardship. Newly reformed Andy pays an unexpected visit to Tolliver, with a different agenda and outcome. Written by WyattJones

In the scene at the Gem when Al brings the beer to Hearst's man, the beer he pours is just a little over half full. In the next shot the beer is almost full to the rim. See more »


E.B. Farnum: Could you have been born, Richardson? And not egg-hatched as I've always assumed? Did your mother hover over you, snaggle-toothed and doting as you now hover over me?
Richardson: I loved my mother.
E.B. Farnum: Puberty may bring you to understand, what we take for mother love is really murderous hatred and a desire for revenge.
Richardson: Will you give your speech to be Mayor tonight?

one of the best episodes
14 March 2010 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

Deadwood surprised me from the offset and quickly became one of my favorite shows. I like all kinds of Western, but the excellent camera work, the impeccable play of several actors, and the great script achieved such a dramatic force that I can hardly believe that anything will soon best this series. This episode is outstanding, and the best one so far in the show, although I haven't watched it to the end yet (together with perhaps the last episode of the second series).

SPOILER ALERT!!! Just think about the bloodcurdling play Cy makes when the Reverend visits him, the scene between Bullock and his wife and the tea, the action in the Gem, Alma's abortion, and Adams' joke which made me laugh out loud, although I rarely do that when I am sitting alone :)), about them being ducklings trailing Al. Just love it! So sad there were only three seasons.
