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.
I saw this earlier today, and it seemed so minor, it barely registered on my own (usually hyperactive) radar. He's way more popular on the show than Ana Lucia and Libby COMBINED, plus it wasn't a DUI. I doubt the big wigs will even reprimand him.
