Alma and an increasingly self-destructive Bullock face an abrupt decision on their future. At the Gem, while Swearengen readies for another showdown with Bullock, infighting between Silas Adams and Dan Dority yields more feed for Wu's pigs. Doc Cochran is surprised by Calamity Jane, who has returned to camp in a state of inebriated deterioration.
Did You Know?
After she arrives in camp, Martha (Anna Gunn
) tells Seth (Timothy Olyphant
) she removed the bundling board she noticed he had installed in their marital bed. A bundling board was a long piece of wood installed like a fence to divide a large bed in two. It was commonly used in courting rituals in Colonial America, before a couple was married, to allow them to respectfully share a bed. However, it was not a very reliable deterrent, based on the pregnancies that commonly resulted. Seth installing the board would confirm that he and Martha had not yet been intimate since their marriage. See more
