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.
That was nutrageous. So much stuff! I wonder if they're going to reattach the hand before the start of the next episode, 'cause if they don't do it then they kind of never can, but it seems like there's so much hook-related material they'd be giving up....
