As Deadwood is overrun by Hearst's men, Bullock issues contingency
plans to Martha. Wu is caught in a Pinkerton stampede and delivers a
cryptic message, that is solved by the unlikeliest person, to
Swearengen. Barrett makes Merrick
pay for embarrassing Hearst in "The Pioneer", while Morgan Earp calls
out one of the "Pistoleros". As night falls, Langrishe mines Deadwood's talent pool with an amateur-night performance in front of his future theater, financed in part by a "loan" from Alma's bank.
