The Pioneer edition featuring Bullock's letter is published, raising concerns about Hearst's response. Erstwhile lawman Wyatt Earp and his brother Morgan ride into town, ostensibly having defended an incoming stagecoach against sabotage. Some town folks question their supposed heroics. Langrishe grants Chesterton a curtain call, and offers to perform long-term therapy on Hearst's chronic aching back. Fields' departure is delayed by an injury at the livery to Steve the Drunk.

This is the second time that a character played by Powers Boothe has faced Wyatt Earp. Boothe played Curly Bill Brocius in Tombstone (1993). See more
In a conversation between Cy Toliver and George Hurst he mentions the term gunsel. This term was used in hobo slang around 1915 to refer to a young male companion of an older tramp. It wasn't until the 1929 novel "The Maltese Falcon" by Dashiell Hammett when the term came to be used to refer to man who was good with a gun. So it's unlikely that it would have been used in Deadwood in the 1870's. See more
