The relationship between Hearst and Aunt Lou is one of the more compelling parts of the show for me. I keep wondering if it will lead anywhere now that the inevitable death of Odel has occurred.
This slow build this season is really well executed. Nothing feels rushed, yet they are all compelling enough to keep the show interesting. With the Pinkerton's showing up, there is a palpable tension in almost every scene.
I'm also somewhat surpised to see the Wyatt Earp portayed as less than the heroic, upstanding lawman that almost every dramatic account paints him.
Finally, some Swearingen woop-ass looks to be taking place next week.
NEver in my life had I been looking forward to an asskicking more thna this one. Count me in as those who thought for sure he would get out of it. Then to be pleasantly surprised and rewarded with the beatdown of the year was perfect.
