The Posse™ rode into Deadwood

Deadwood Banner ©JBoardmanPREVIOUSLY: After finding an abandoned cabin, in good condition, in the woods outside Deadwood, Joey Keller set about recruiting a new gang in Nuttal & Mann’s Saloon, “No more women this time,” he thought to himself.

He ended-up hiring Thomas Wilson, Wilbur Smith, Herbert Jones and Rafe Smith—all with impressive credentials—at least, according to Henry Carlson, the barkeeper.

“Okay, fellows, Let’s ride.”

“So—what’s the plan, Boss?” Jones asked, “Bank robbing?”

“Not around here,” Keller replied, “Maybe in Rapid City.”

“That’s a big town,” Thomas Wilson observed, “The banks must have some money.”

“We’ll take our time getting the lay of the place before we do anything—just listen to conversations in the saloons and shops.”

“That sounds good to me,” Rafe Smith grinned, “How about women?”

“Only for recreation,” Keller laughed.

Season 18, Adventure 4, DEADWOOD, Episode 2—Scene 1… The Posse rode into Deadwood, Dakota Territory, slowly, to theme from The Magnificent Seven… “No sign of Keller, that I can see,” Mac rumbled as the Posse™ rode into town.

“Maybe he’s out recruiting?”

“Maybe he’s out recruiting?”

“That could be, Mrs. Earp,” Wyatt replied, “Maybe we should stop-in to Nuttal & Mann’s Saloon.”

“We should.”

The Posse™ dismounted and went into the saloon, and Mac showed aa sketch of Keller, “Pardon me, barkeep, have you seen this guy in here?”

“Yes, Marshal,” he replied, “He came-in alone and left with Thomas Wilson, Wilbur Smith, Herbert Jones and Rafe Smith—all trouble-makers.”

“Do happen to know where they were headed?”

“No sir,” he replied, “I was too busy tending bar.”

“Thank you,” Mac said as the Posse™ left the saloon.

“Now what, Mac?” Debra asked.

DEADWOOD, Episode 2—Scene 2… Inside a Rapid City hotel room… Keller met with his gang, Thomas Wilson, Wilbur Smith, Herbert Jones and Rafe Smith, “Gentlemen—it’s time to earn some money.”

“I’m ready, Boss,” Wilbur Smith replied, “Where first?”

“Where first?”

“I suggest you wait,” Juco appeared out of thin-air—causing all but Keller to just about leap out of their boots.

“Why?” Keller asked.

“Because the Posse may be on to you.”


“It’s just a feeling I have.”

“Not good enough for me Juco.”

Juco replied, “Very well—don’t take my word—at your own risk.”
