  • This episode marks a return to the fine storytelling that graced the first season's offerings. The stilted dialogue of this season's early episodes has been trimmed, one must think for brevity's sake, and the results are most welcome.

    Swearengen is back, and not a moment too soon! Not only that, but the characters are talking believably again. My assumption is that the story arc has been established beforehand by the creator, and as such the episode writer minimally fulfills the goal of advancing the plot. That being said, the elements have come together to provide for an enjoyable experience in this episode. As in real life, and the life depicted by this wonderful series, there are ups and downs. We should not be surprised that production levels should fluctuate as well. I am here to report that they have met, and exceeded my expectations!
