As Deadwood readies for a celebration, George Hearst's arrival in camp brings upheaval. Hearst cuts ties with Wolcott and makes separate arrangements with Swearengen regarding the camp's "celestials", and E.B., who suffers from gastric difficulties. Tensions in camp boil over between Andy and Cy, as well as in "Chinaman's Alley". Swearengen orchestrates new elections, and sends Bullock home to his wife. Written by WyattJones

Deadwood Spurred The Trip To South Dakota
20 November 2007 | by biznichemarketingSee all my reviews

After watching the first season via DVD over a one week period and falling in love with the characters as well as the scenery, I couldn't help but plan a trip to the town of Deadwood. Deadwood is a place that holds many ghosts and is definitely a place you should visit as it contains much history. The trip came after watching season two, again all at once on DVD. Going to the town and seeing the actual burial sites of Wild Bill, Calamity Jane and Sheriff Bullock is something to hold in the memory bank forever. I haven't seen the third series yet, but am much anticipating its arrival. Walking through the town streets, sitting in the bars and even watching mock ups of the show really brought this movie to light and even drove me to look into further history of the area. Great series and dreading the day it becomes extinct!
