Deadwood Season 3 Episode 1: masterpiece of plot building

image

So many gently intertwined stands of story. Starting with an almost incomprehensible insult and killing, they were speaking cornish was there offence. EB gives inadvertent offence to Bullock and gets a beating that is almost lyrical (offscreen). Trixie is more lyrical than the school room couplets, when she betrays Stark for not anticipating Al’s plan for her to service Stark through a hole in the wall. And all the while Al and Hurst are jockeying for power.
This start to season three jumps in effortlessly to plot, power and people.
