Let’s say 2021 as long as I’m writing this with a full time job. When we meet Ellsworth here, he is confessing to Al Swearengen over a gold bought glass of whiskey. And with one sentence, he paints his rebirth with his own language. How did it turn out for Ellsworth? I’ll have a lot to say about it. Over that drink, he confessed to Al, “I may have fucked my life up flatter than hammered shit, but I stand here before you beholden to no human cocksucker.” These first few moments of the pilot are the only taste of freedom any of those in Deadwood would ever know going forward.

But this will be Al Swearengen’s story and it is a tragedy with a comic ending. The sad clown gets one true laugh on his way out.
