Storyline

The camp turns out to vote - but as Bullock notes, the election may already have been decided. In light of the populace's mood, Langrishe delays the opening of his theater, and ponders his future in Deadwood. Hawkeye arrives at the Gem with "almost 18" men to complement Wu's contingent. Alma works out a deal for her claim. Joanie reaches out to a frustrated Tolliver. Through E.B., Hearst issues his conditions for departure, forcing Swearengen to finish what Burns can't.
