Gil Favor: You sound pretty bitter, girl. It aint that difficult to see you standing around in a starched apron. I bet just about anything that, what you seem to be and what you really are, are two entirely different things.
Lottie Denton: Gil Favor, you may be a cattle driving genius, but you just don't know nothing about women.

A dark end for a great series...
1 October 2018 | by stellaarwennicolinaSee all my reviews

I know, the series went ahead after this episode but the great time was over. The 'Gray Rock Hotel' is a very dark episode and on my opinion the title 'Grey Rock Hotel' would have fit much better. The story hast nothing to do with a cattle drive anymore. (Cattle aint even mentioned.) And really... A big sikness all over the drover-crew aint no reason to fire any of the drovers. I mean... There actually aint no, I mean a absolutely no reason why they shouldn't appear in the next episode!!!
