“Helpless—INDEED!”

Deadwood Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 13—Adventure 11—Deadwood! Episode 6—Scene 1… Ragnar’s parlor… “As I expected—they are law enforcement gunslingers.”

Ragnar met with the Eagle Rider Leader ©Jack Boardman“As I expected—they are law enforcement gunslingers.”

“Do you want us to kill them?”

“Not just yet,” Ragnar replied, “I want to observe them a while longer—besides, it will be at least two weeks before the next gold shipment.”

“So, you have nothing for us?”

“On the contrary,” Ragnar said, “Dress in your regular clothes and hang-out in town. When the enemy returns, get near them—congratulate them on their success in protecting the gold shipment.”

“Easy enough, Ragnar. May I ask why?”

“One of them killed my brother.”

“Do you have who it might be?”

“It was a woman.”

“How do you know?”

“I don’t know how—I just know.”

What Ragnar didn’t know—he was observed by Karma, the queen of all eagles—with far better vision than he possessed in his eagle form—and who followed him to his home.

Episode 6—Scene 2… Outside Deadwood… Karma intercepted the Rootin Tootinest Posse, “We need to talk.”

“You’ve been spying on us,” Boomer cracked-wise. Karma ignored him—BIG surprise there.

“He knows, or at least thinks he knows that it was a woman who shot and killed his brother.”

“Oh great,” Chris said, “Now I gotta watch my back all the time.”

“Maybe not,” Linda had an idea, “Let’s stage a shooting-match between all us women…”

“…And have it be a draw,” Sarah finished Linda’s thought, “Brilliant!”

“We’ll talk it up in the saloon when we get back to town,” Linda continued, “That way, Ragnar will quickly find out about it.”

“And send his spies to watch the match,” Chris added, “That may keep him off my case—but may force him to try to kill all of us.”

“Gee—what a great plan,” Ralph muttered.

“It’s all we can do—there’s always risk in our business.”

“Of course you’re right, m’dear. I still don’t like it.”

“By now the cavalry has met the gold wagon, so we can expect Hickok and Lacy to return to Deadwood,” Big Mac thought out loud, “That will add another straight-shooting woman into the mix.”

“And another male gunslinger to help cover our helpless women folk.”

“Or get quick revenge, cuzzin.” Linda shot back, “Helpless—INDEED!”
