A new day is dawning in the Black Hills outlaw camp of Deadwood.
Governmental and legal interests, as well as those of powerful commercial entities, begin to enter the town as Deadwood prepares itself for entry into Dakota Territory.
The series charts Deadwood’s growth from camp to town, incorporating themes ranging from the formation of communities to Western capitalism.
The show features a large ensemble cast, and many historical figures appear as characters such as Seth Bullock, Al Swearengen, Wild Bill Hickok, Sol Star, Calamity Jane, Wyatt Earp, E. B. Farnum, Charlie Utter and George Hearst.
The plot lines involving these characters include historical truths as well as substantial fictional elements. Some of the characters are fully fictional, although they may have been based on actual persons.
Tonight, Swearengen spends a sleepless night, as a drunk wanders the deserted streets.
“I am not the fine man you take me for,” shouts the man as he climbs the hustings and proclaims his sorry lot – then topples to his death.
Preparing for the day, Martha and Bullock discuss whether the speeches will take place that night.
Doc warns Alma that she needs surgery if she wants to avoid a miscarriage.
