“That one is the one!”

Deadwood Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 13—Adventure 11—Deadwood! Episode 8—Scene 1… At the event on Stagecoach Road… The five female gunslingers walked to their respective positions on the firing line along the road—bantering with one another.

High above the range—Ragnar the changeling observed the ladies getting into position—and wished his ears were as sharp as his eyes.

“No matter,” he thought, “I’ll be able to see who among them draws first and who fires the most accurate shot—she’ll be the one who killed Olav—she’d be the one who will die.”

Deadwood! Episode 8—Scene 2… At the event on Stagecoach Road… The last-minute betting ended as James Butler “Wild Bill” Hickok announced, “Ladies—at the sound of my gun—draw and fire one round, and one round only!”

He fired—a split-second later the ladies had fired their round and holstered their weapons.

ALL hit the red circle—with Linda scoring a hit dead-center on the target.

“That one is the one!” Ragnar thought, “But—perhaps I should eliminate them all as that would ensure Olav’s killer is dead. That shot may just have been luck.”

Ragnar flew home as he didn’t need to rush his revenge—and preferred to savor the thought of killing the ladies one at a time.

Deadwood! Episode 8—Scene 2… In Boomer & Mac’s Room… Leaving all but the “female gunslingers” and themselves outside and on guard, Boomer and Mac wanted ideas on how best to proceed—seeing as how their feminine friends had become targets.

“Ideas, anyone?” Mac asked.

“Oh—well, now that you mention it—maybe a little time travel the hell out of here?” Chris laughed, “Or—just turn us loose on those asshats!”

“Don’t mince words Chris,” Debra said, “Tell us what you really think!”

“Oh—Debra,” Sarah replied, “You REALLY don’t want to go there.”

“How about we just go about our business?” Linda suggested.

“You stole my line,” Lacy added, “If we take any special actions—that will tip him off.”

“We could ask Cujo to contact Karma,” Chris suggested, “We know she’s already around.”

“There’s a thought,” Sarah agreed, “Oh Cujo—we need you.”
