This review is actually for this episode and the two that come after it, because I feel things really started rolling with this one. Let\'s dispense with the niceties; dialogue has been getting clearer, while still remaining elusive and poetic - bonus point. Plot has been getting thick with hard emotions, with hard fists and hard foretelling. Bonus point two. Love and hate rule, and things are moving toward a crescendo so creepingly sharp that I have literally been catching myself tense up and rise up off my chair on a number of occasions and mutter to myself something like, well \"f**k...\"
From the incredible hard fight between the colonel and Dan, to a tender moment between Jane and Joanie, and ever increasing impending doom of the camp, this show is the hard hitting monster of television right now, not only surpassing in these three episodes the highs it usually offered us maybe two or three times per season in the first two seasons, but far outgunning anything drama has or had to offer in the past 12 months.
It\'s a keeper, and i see it captivating us until its violent, bitter end - which I will gladly stare down with my eyes wide open and mutter again \"Thank you so f****ng much Deadwood...\" Thank you indeed.
