Storyline

General Crook rolls into Deadwood with his troops, known as "Custer's avengers," and the Yankton magistrate, Clagett, prompting a parade and business solicitations from E.B. Farnum and Cy Tolliver. Al Swearengen delivers a tortured soul from suffering, and Bullock reacts decisively to Russell's intentions regarding Alma. Stapleton's new commission as sheriff proves short-lived, and Bullock and Alma have a late-night meeting. Written by WyattJones

"What kind of man have I become, Saul?" (dialog) (Seth Bullock)
31 December 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

... and Saul replies, "I don't know. The day ain't $#%^$# over..." Film historians of the future will not only sing the praises of Tim Olyphant's work in film and TV, but, I assure you, they will not fail to mention how audiences of the era (that would be ... us) failed to fully appreciate him.

The same cannot be said of David Milch who produced and wrote this excellent series. I am in awe of the way Milch introduced Olyphant off the top of the series and then kept him in reserve until the 12th episode -- the same way you keep your rook back in a chess game -- until here, in this instalment, he is literally unleashed.

Let me be clear. The writing is excellent. The acting is excellent. The direction and staging excellent. But even against such strong odds, Olyphant at the top of his craft can steal the entire episode to the point that it just seems to be all about him.

And you know what? It is.
