“Let’s GO!”

Deadwood Banner ©JBoardmanPREVIOUSLY: Keller’s Gang rode towards Flyspeck and as they did—came across a Conestoga wagon heading in the opposite direction, towards Rapid City.

They would never reach Rapid City.

The victims were a family just looking for a new life in Dakota Territory—they meant no harm to anybody—now they wouldn’t have the chance.

“Well, gentlemen,” Keller observed, “This has been a profitable day.”

“I’ll say,” Rafe Smith agreed, “Let’s continue to earn even more profitable days.”

“No more today,” Keller advised, “Let’s head for Sioux Falls—the so-called posse is probably aware of our activities in Rapid City.”

DEADWOOD, Episode 3—Scene 3… Several hours later the Posse™ rode into A Ghost Town… The first thing they saw was the Conestoga wagon—Chris was the first to reach it.

“They’re all dead,” Chris Earp said, “Keller?”

“Probably, Chris,” Mac rumbled, “We can’t leave them to the buzzards—we must bury them.”

Season 18, Adventure 4, DEADWOOD, Episode 4—Scene 1… Flyspeck, Dakota Territory… The Posse™ rode into Flyspeck, “Okay gang, spread-out and see what you learn.”

“You got it, Mac!” Chris exclaimed, “Let’s GO!”

Let’s GO!”

The only commercial place to visit was the “Flyspeck Saloon.”

DEADWOOD, Episode 4—Scene 2… Inside the Flyspeck Saloon… Chris & Wyatt Earp went into the Flyspeck Saloon, and found Cassie Jones, Susanna Wilson, Bradley Schmidt, Will Thomas, Rufus Strange, & Jack Peterson, hanging-out there—although they didn’t know their names—yet.

Chris & Wyatt also didn’t know they were new hires to Keller’s gang.

Chris & Wyatt also didn’t know they were new hires to Keller’s gang.

They had an amicable conversation—you know—weather and such—fortunately for them.

Fortunate because had they mentioned their line of work; they might not have survived their visit to the saloon, right Gentle Reader™?

DEADWOOD, Episode 4—Scene 3… An hour or so, later—Keller on the road out of the Black Hills…

His new hires would follow the in the next day or so, “Do you think they’ll catch-up with us?”

“Do you think they’ll catch-up with us?”

“Yes Rafe,” Keller replied, “In a week or so.”

DEADWOOD, Episode 4—Scene 4… A week or so later, on the Dakota Territory Prairie… The new hires met Keller on the Prairie.

(And to think Gentle Reader—Keller said he wouldn’t hire women again!)

“It’s about time you caught-up, gentlemen & ladies,” Keller said not unkindly, “We have some riding ahead of us—let’s ride!”
