    From what we've seen in the trailer, Hearst knows Jen wasn't the woman who shot him, and he knows Trixie is still alive. It's also possible Johnny is harboring some hard feelings against Al all these years later. God, I can't wait to find out. I've got to see if I can borrow somebody's HBO account.

    Unfortunately, Titus Welliver was too busy filming Bosch. He's not the only one who had scheduling conflicts: I just read yesterday that Molly Parker could only film on weekends because of Lost in Space, so her role is reduced.

    All things considered, we've been pretty damn lucky with the entire cast when it comes to scheduling, especially since how last minute it seemed everything came together.

    And other than that, the only other major absences are because of death: Powers Boothe and Ralph Richeson (Richardson; died in 2015).

    Yeah, it breaks my heart that Powers Boothe died before this film was finally produced. I'm also sad we'll never get to see Richardson again. I had forgotten how much I loved that rascally guy during my rewatch.

    His growing friendship with Aunt Lou was especially a favorite aspect of season 3 for me

    It's heartbreaking to read about the effects of Alzheimer’s for any person, but especially for someone with the creative mind such as Milch's. To slowly lose one's faculties and memories must be outright terrifying. It's truly one of the worst diseases. :(

    So, who does everyone have in the Deadwood death pool? I'm going with Charlie Utter, Dan, Hearst, and the Gem (burns down).

    I'm bummed Richardson can't join us. I loved his character. Fucking pagan.

    Not any of the historical characters which would include Utter and Hearst (although Hearst did die two years later so...).

    I worry terribly for Trixie, but I imagine they won't go that way because that's the obvious choice.

    I would say someone finally puts Farnum out of his misery but he's a historical character, so I doubt it.

    So...that leaves Doc Cochran. Is he still coughing up bile after all these years? :lol:

    Yeah, I was really hoping they would get him in there as a cameo at least. :D

    For anyone in Canada, it's not airing in Canada tonight. Instead it's slated to air on Sunday night.

    Damn...the cocksuckers really threw history out right on its ass, didn't they? All for the sake of good drama and why the fuck not?

    Poor Charlie Utter. He was probably the most principle and honest person in all of Deadwood and that cocksucker George Hearst had him killed all because Charlie had the guts to stand his ground. Just like poor Whitney Ellsworth. At least this time, Hearst got a good beating out of it this time, and if they're really going to throw history into the wind, perhaps some actual justice? Yeah, probably not, but it was still a mighty good note to end on anyhow.

    Even though we knew the core cast would all return (sans Silas Adams), I was still pleasantly surprised to see Jewel, Aunt Lou (!!!), Con Stapleton, Harry Manning (and turned traitor!), and even Merrick. I was especially surprised that Jeffrey Jones returned considering he's a registered sex offender and I even thought for a moment that they had a stand-in for faraway shots until he actually had some lines during the auction.

    Despite the interview I read a week ago about Molly Parker being able to shoot only on the weekends, Alma had a significant role in the film, appearing during all of the major events (shootouts aside). In fact, it was William Sanderson who felt a bit more on the absent side, although that didn't stop good ol' E.B. Farnum from having some pure gold moments, from his secret peepholes (because of he would!) to the one moment of verbal brevity that had to happen in unheard whisper form. :lol:

    For a two-hour film with a couple dozen characters, I have to say I'm pretty impressed how it managed to juggle multiple storylines and arcs, all weaved into each other, giving wonderful and necessary closure for our beloved characters, especially for Seth, Sol, Trickie, Charlie, Jane, and poor old Al.

    I think I spotted Garrett Dillahunt's cameo: He was the last rioter (with a large, rubbish beard) to yell out at Hearst (something about his father) before Bullock brought Hearst into the marshal's office to be locked up.

    Just about my only complaint about the film was lack of mentioning of the infamous fire that destroyed most of the town in 1879. I always imagined if the series kept going, it would've been the season four finale (or near to it) and Hearst would be the one responsible for it.
