Episode Info

Al (Ian McShane) and Seth (Timothy Olyphant) discuss the possibility of using Seth's purported Montana connection to get them more leverage with Yankton. Seth reluctantly agrees to play along. Wolcott (Garret Dillahunt) writes to George Hearst to let him know they've bought up every major gold claim in the region except Alma's (Molly Parker), and that they haven't yet reached the point where they can bring in Chinese labor and start operating 24 hours a day. In the meantime, Captain Turner (Allan Graf) is keeping the Cornish workers in line. Wolcott meets with Mose Manuel (Pruitt Taylor Vince), who made a large gold find with his estranged brother. Wolcott offers a massive sum to buy the claim, knowing that Mose's brother will refuse to sell, and that the hot-tempered Mose will find a way to obtain sole ownership. Charlie (Dayton Callie) sends a broken down Jane (Robin Weigert) to look after his friend, Joanie (Kim Dickens), who is sitting alone at the Chez Amis, waiting for a less friendly caller to arrive. Martha (Anna Gunn) confronts Seth about his relationship with Alma, and what it means to their future together. Alma, in a fit of pique, confronts Miss Isringhausen (Sarah Paulson) about her treachery, inadvertently showing Al's hand. Tom Nuttall (Leon Rippy) receives the bicycle he's ordered, prompting excited wagering in the camp over whether he can traverse the thoroughfare atop the contraption. Ellsworth (Jim Beaver) comes to a decision about Alma, but she's not ready to decide anything. A telegraph operator, Blazanov (Pavel Lychnikoff), arrives in the camp, and sets up shop at the newspaper office. Al asks Merrick (Jeffrey Jones) to print an article about Seth's "unconfirmed" meeting with Montana officials.
