(dramatic Western music)

BRIAN: When last we left off, you found out Mayor Farnum was killed. You took his body to Doc Cochran's and examined it. Both front and back. (stifled laughing) You found evidence (laughter)--

MATT: You all laugh. (laughter)

ANJALI: Yes, we all do.

BRIAN: You found lots of snake bites and evidence that something had tore down his throat and into his body and you found scaly, ashy stuff inside of there. You went to Mr. Swearengen. You talked to Mr. Swearengen, told him your findings, he offered you more money to continue and to finish the mission. As you there were at the Gem Saloon, you heard commotion in the street and undead Wild Bill Hickock was there, unfortunately with your sister, Cynthia, also undead. After a battle that went better for some than for others, you successfully managed to disintegrate the remains of undead Wild Bill Hickock and you, by stroke of luck, landed the kill shot on your own undead sister.

MARISHA: Not sure if I'd call it luck.

KHARY: Better you than anybody else.

MARISHA: You're not wrong.

BRIAN: Cynthia's body still lay in the street. There is almost nothing but dust and remaining threads of some of Wild Bill's clothing. His hat is even disintegrated, his guns are disintegrated. There's just dust and ash where his body was. Your sister's body still lay in the street, you are still on the balcony. Fogg, you are on the roof of The Gem. I believe Reverend Mason was there at the bank. Our sharpshooting Clayton Sharpe-- our Clayton Sharpe-shooter was in between the Bullock Hotel and the Gem Saloon. You are where we left off. What would you like to do?

KHARY: I'm going to head down off of the roof and I think we should probably examine poor Cynthia, see what we have left here.

ANJALI: I'm going to stay with Arabella until I'm sure she's composed herself and make sure that she's not looking towards Cynthia, to get her inside.

MARISHA: Yeah, I'm going to... I'm just inconsolable with you.

BRIAN: Okay.

KHARY: I might ask Mr. Swearengen if he would, as I descend to the second floor if he would accompany me to the to the outside to see the remains of Cynthia Livingston.

BRIAN: He says, "I've got some other business to attend to, "but feel free to take any one of your friends, "they seem quite capable. "Wild Bill was a much better shot when he was alive." (chuckling)

KHARY: Stay close, I'm sure we'll have more to talk about.

BRIAN: "I'll be here if you need me."

TRAVIS: I'll stand up in the bank, reload my double barrel shotgun. Is that hooplehead still trying to get into the vault?

BRIAN: He is, he's made about, probably like a half an inch of his way into the safe of about, I would say, 12 inches, so he would finish sometime around the Reagan presidency.

TRAVIS: (shotgun cocking) Can I level both barrels at him and say: Now son, you're about to get yourself in a world of trouble. I'mma have to ask you nicely to clear the fucking bank!

BRIAN: He turns around, stops what he's he stops the picking, he turns around to look at you and he looks you up and down. Make an intimidation check for me, please, Reverend.

MARISHA: Yes! Fear of God!

TRAVIS: Three. (laughter)

BRIAN: He looks at you and he says, "Howdy, Reverend. "Plan on donating some of this to your church." Turns around, keeps picking at the thing.

TRAVIS: I have bigger fish to fry. You guys might want to come out from behind that desk, he's going to be at that for a while. Come on!

BRIAN: Everybody trepidatiously, they're looking out the windows, they're not even looking at you, they're just looking out the windows and seeing you know, a lot of crazy shit's gone down in the last two or three days here, so they're filing out into the front to the windows, but they're not really going out into the street just yet. It seems a little scary.

TRAVIS: Keep an eye out while you're working, there are demon snakes afoot. And I'll leave the bank and head over to the Gem Saloon.

BRIAN: Okay.

ANJALI: Throwaway there.

MARISHA: Demon snakes afoot!

ANJALI: B-T-dubs.

BRIAN: Who's going outside to take a look at Cynthia?

MATT: I'm heading there as well, probably to meet you when you make your way down. I'm checking specifically to look inside her mouth to see if she suffers the same wounds that Farnum and other individuals have.

BRIAN: Okay, okay. Do you, you two are staying inside Al's office?

ANJALI: I'm bringing her inside but we'll make our way downstairs as she can.

MARISHA: Yeah. In time.

BRIAN: Okay.

ANJALI: In time.

BRIAN: You're going to go over there, too?

MATT: Mm-hmm.

BRIAN: The three of you approach the body of Cynthia, you don't see any snake bites on her face, she's started to decompose because she passed away a few weeks ago, so she's decomposing, but she's not as decomposed as, say, Wild Bill, who was basically just a skeleton. Her mouth is open, you do not see any of the same sort of markings that you saw on the other victims. No snake bites.

KHARY: It seems that the that bodies of the risen are not necessarily the ones that were bitten by the snakes.

MATT: Right, right, right.

TRAVIS: Unless they were previously bitten. Like an incubation period. Bit, went on their business, got sick, died.

KHARY: Well, they weren't killed by the snakes is what I mean.

TRAVIS: That's true. Hickock's been dead for years.

MATT: One of them snakes crawled down and bit a long decomposed bony corpse of Wild Bill, unfortunately, doesn't follow logic.

TRAVIS: Yeah.

KHARY: (sighs) The one place that I believe that we hadn't investigated was the was it the Number 10?

BRIAN: The Number 10 was one of the you guys found the list in Doc Cochran's office with his handwriting.

KHARY: That was the name of the proprietor, was it not?

BRIAN: With the names crossed out, yeah, Tom Nuttall.

KHARY: I think that's the one place we haven't investigated that we probably could find some more information.

MATT: Let's do it.

TRAVIS: Mm-hmm.

ANJALI: As this happens, the two of us--

BRIAN: Yeah?

ANJALI: Slowly come out and I still have my arm around her making sure that she's all right.

MATT: Are you all right, Arabella?

MARISHA: Sure. Yeah, I'll be all right.

MATT: Good. Because we're moving.

MARISHA: Just let me... Give me one moment.

MATT: All right.

MARISHA: I go over to Cynthia. Does she have anything on her, any jewelry, any...?

BRIAN: She does not have any jewelry on her, she just has a dress that she was buried in. But she has no jewelry or other effects on her.

MARISHA: Hmm. Mr. Sharpe?

MATT: Mm-hmm?

MARISHA: Can I borrow that knife of yours?

MATT: Go ahead and procure my Bowie knife and hand it over.

MARISHA: Cut off a lock of her hair, tuck it away in my kit.

BRIAN: The second the blade hits her hair, you have this weird sensation in your mind, like you did a few minutes ago when you were successfully casting that Mind Link spell. Suddenly, the image of your sister appears in your mind and then disappears. You hear a familiar voice from a giant snake pit say to you, "You weak fools! "This game is coming to an end, "but I still have some unfinished business, some revenge. "Come to where we first met. "Or watch me burn this place to the ground." And the Mind Link ends.

MARISHA: Did anyone, did anyone else hear that?

KHARY: Miss Arabella, you all right?

MATT: What's what? You kind of left of us for a second there.

MARISHA: It was... It was a voice in my head, it said that the game is almost over. And to go back to where we first met. Does that mean the snake pit?

TRAVIS: Where we first met?

ANJALI: Where we all had those dreams.

TRAVIS: All right.

MARISHA: I think we need to go back to the pit.

MATT: Well, if we're going to do that, then we know what we're going into. Need to pick up some supplies.

TRAVIS: Read my mind.

ANJALI: Agreed.

KHARY: Should we properly dispose of what's left of Miss Cynthia?

BRIAN: If you guys are going to go out to that snake pit, you remember you will pass the graveyard on your way out of town because it's up to the northwest. Should you choose to do that. If you want supplies, there are two places in town you can purchase them. The Bullock Hotel and Hardware Store or you can go back to Cy Tolliver at the Bella Union and see if he'll sell you supplies.

ANJALI: Well, there's no one running the Bullock Hotel right now, so I don't know how we'd get the supplies, we'd just take them?

BRIAN: There might be someone there.

MATT: Yeah, in the Bullock, probably.

BRIAN: Sol Star operates the hardware section of the Bullock Hotel.

MATT: Well, I do have tenuous connection at the Bella Union, I don't think, unless we require anything that's under the table necessarily, we can just go to the Hotel.

ANJALI: Agreed.

MATT: I'm going to go ahead and I guess, if you're wishing to handle your sister's remains, I'm going to go ahead and make an expedition to the hotel. Anyone who wants to come along and pick up some supplies.

ANJALI: I'll do the same. I want to go back to my room for a moment.

TRAVIS: We'll need light, lanterns, fire.

KHARY: Horses?

MARISHA: Dynamite.

TRAVIS: Things to make fire. Dynamite?

MATT: That was what I was thinking

TRAVIS: Oh, well now, uh... You want to mess with dynamite?

ANJALI: Yes.

MARISHA: Fuck whatever this snake demon deity is that is trying to take over this town. Fuck that oil. Fuck all of it.

TRAVIS: All right, she wants to fuck with dynamite.

MATT: Very well.

TRAVIS: I'll help you with your sister.

MARISHA: Thank you, Reverend.

MATT: You coming, Fogg?

KHARY: Sure. We do need horses, I imagine? Should I...?

ANJALI: We should probably get two more, since we only have the three.

KHARY: Sure.

MATT: All right. (laughter)

KHARY: Let's try to hold onto these this time, gentlemen?

MATT: We'll try to avoid a stampede second time out. Absolutely. (knowing laughter) All right all right, so yeah, let's go ahead and buy some equipment while they're finishing up. We'll head to the livery, pick up ourselves two more horses and then we'll regather here at the outside of the hotel, sound good?

TRAVIS: Mm-hmm.

BRIAN: You know where you got the horses the first time.

MATT: All right.

KHARY: All right, so we'll head to the Bullock?

MATT: Yep.

BRIAN: Okay, you guys head to the Bullock Hotel. You walk in, you see some of the remaining residents of the hotel just looking out the windows and ducking still, just very terrified, thinking that with the events of what's happening anything could happen any moment. They're terrified.

KHARY: Could I do a notice check?

BRIAN: Sure, please. What are you looking for?

KHARY: Nothing in particular.

BRIAN: Okay, yeah.

KHARY: Just anything that might be of use.

BRIAN: Cool.

KHARY: A four explodes and a five, so.

TRAVIS: Reroll that four!

KHARY: And that's a one, so.

BRIAN: Okay.

KHARY: Five, 10.

BRIAN: You look down the street as you guys get close enough to the hotel and you see that Garrett from the livery has abandoned it and the horses are all still there. Two of them have been shot in some of the crossfire, but there's still about four or five horses left at the livery and Garrett is nowhere to be found. He's probably fled, you assume, with some of these people and left the livery abandoned, so.

KHARY: Maybe I'll make... Why don't I go ahead and take care of grabbing a couple of horses before they run off? You think you'll be fine here at the Bullock, I'll just, when I get back, I'll bring the horses to you?

MATT: Yeah, come on back.

ANJALI: I'm going to head up to my room and grab a couple of things.

MATT: Pick up a few lanterns for the troop, pick up a few other packs of matches just in case. Pick up some general trail rations, just for the travel portion there and possible return. As far as dynamite goes...

MARISHA: All of it.

MATT: How much dynamite do they have available?

MARISHA: Fucking all of it. (Matt chuckles)

MATT: Which I assume they have, given this is a mining town, that's probably

BRIAN: There is dynamite available.

MARISHA: Marshal, can I say that I would have handed some gold over to Mr. Sharpe before we separated?

BRIAN: Of course, yeah, that's fine. But what he's going to purchase anyway would not equal up to, you know, he got 250--

MARISHA: Gold.

BRIAN: 250 Dollars in gold from--

MARISHA: So I give you 50 gold from my stash to help.

MATT: I'll take it, ain't going to argue.

BRIAN: So Clayton, you want to buy some dynamite?

MATT: One of a few things, yeah, but dynamite is the most important one.

BRIAN: Okay, how much dynamite would you like to get?

MATT: How much are they? As far as like, how much do we want, I guess I would say? I know they probably come in clumps of like four sticks, eight sticks.

BRIAN: One, two, four, and eight.

MATT: There we go.

ANJALI: I have no concept of how much what does.

MARISHA: How, do, okay.

MATT: Well, the heavier it is, the harder it is to throw.

ANJALI: Right, but if you have like several clumps and stuff.

MARISHA: But can you place it?

MATT: Yeah!

MARISHA: So if we wanted to collapse a tunnel inward? Man, I am not a demolitions expert, but!

ANJALI: But if we wanted to collapse the pit inward or collapse a tunnel inward...

MARISHA: Yeah, how much (stammering)?

MATT: It's probably a decent amount.

TRAVIS: One stick of dynamite would probably do it, two would definitely do it.

MARISHA: One stick?

KHARY: One stick?

TRAVIS: Yeah.

MARISHA: But it's a pit!

MATT: That's a big pit, though.

KHARY: It's a big pit!

TRAVIS: Yeah, I thought you said a tunnel. A pit in the ground is different. A tunnel, you just need to hit one structure point. Yeah.

ANJALI: Would it be wise to spread it out among us?

MATT: I think so.

ANJALI: So, two, two, two, two, two?

MATT: That way if someone catches fire, we don't lose the entire bit.

ANJALI: Fair! (laughter)

ANJALI: Always thinking, Clayton.

KHARY: Who's the least flammable among us?

ANJALI: Well, I have lots of hairspray, so-- (laughter) It's a new development you gentlemen really should know about. Two, two, two, two, and two? Two too?

MATT: I'd say MARISHA and

MATT: Four, four, four, four, and four.

ANJALI: Let's do it! Why not, more is more!

MATT: Five sets of four sticks, please, Marshal.

BRIAN: You got it, you got it, Sol Star--

TRAVIS: That's 50 sticks of dynamite, please.

BRIAN: Sol Star hands you those sticks of dynamite and says, "Hope you're not taking "the stagecoach out of town with these."

MATT: Oh no, just a short jaunt around the corner.

BRIAN: "Wheels on that tend to be a little bumpy. "Also, "thanks for helping out my partner."

MATT: Well, tell him thanks for helping out the rest of the poor fuckers that live here.

BRIAN: "He's off trying to find Doc Cochran "but when he gets back, I'll let him know."

MATT: Appreciate that. All right so, gather up the sticks, gather up the lanterns.

ANJALI: We all have matches, too?

MATT: Matches for everyone set as well, so you got that in your disposal. Actually, can I buy fuse as well?

TRAVIS: Ooh, extended fuse, yeah.

MARISHA: Hell yeah.

ANJALI: I just assumed it was on there, what do I know?

BRIAN: Sol's probably got maybe two rolls of 20 feet.

MATT: Two rolls of 20 feet of fuse, I'll take it.

ANJALI: Let's do it.

BRIAN: The kind of mining that people come to the hardware store to get supplies for is not usually larger scale like this, but they keep some around for special occasions.

ANJALI: I'm just going to run up to my room for one minute, I need to grab one more thing.

MATT: All right, all right.

BRIAN: You run up to your room, the others will stay down, go ahead.

ANJALI: I'll run up to my room and I go into a chest where I've put some of my clothes and I pull out a photo, worn grizzled photo of me and my husband and I take it and I put it in my chest, in my cleavage, and I open up my second snuff box and I wrap the contents of that different substance in more cloth for padding. Close it up, put it in my pack, and head downstairs.

BRIAN: Okay. Not the substance that you...

ANJALI: Asked questions about recently? Yes.

BRIAN: Yeah. Okay, okay. You rejoin the others downstairs, okay. As you get downstairs, you can see through the window that Fogg's on his way back with the horses.

KHARY: Ladies and gentlemen, mount up. I say we take a leisurely, less bumpy stroll back up to the pit.

ANJALI: Agreed.

MATT: I agree.

TRAVIS: I'll have gone into Doc Cochran's office and grabbed some canvas, tarp, or sheet to come out and roll up--

BRIAN: Yeah, his office was open, that's absolutely fine. Roll up Cynthia?

TRAVIS: Yeah.

BRIAN: Did you just hand her her sister?

ANJALI: The dynamite. (laughter)

MATT: When we see him next.

BRIAN: I was like, Jesus!

TRAVIS: (overly dramatic pretend crying)

MATT: Here's your goddamn sister!

BRIAN: I was like, what did you hand her?!

ANJALI: We cremated her while you were--

BRIAN: The Reverend had me distracted.

MATT: She's a lot lighter after a few weeks in the ground. (groaning)

MARISHA: A little dehydrated?

BRIAN: Boy, let's see, how many Bennies you-- I'll leave them. I was going to take one away. (laughter) You come out of Doc Cochran's office and you approach the body of Cynthia.

TRAVIS: Roll her, roll her back, cover her up with the canvas. Pick her up, put her on the back of one of the horses.

MARISHA: Have you ever done a funeral service... twice, Reverend?

TRAVIS: Can't say that I have.

MARISHA: No. I'm glad that we get to share this experience together.

TRAVIS: Right. Shall we?

BRIAN: Okay, you guys head out of town by the northwest trail. After about a few minutes, you arrive at the graveyard. The scene is similar to as it was before, except there's no fog.

KHARY: Hmm.

BRIAN: There's still a hole where Wild Bill was, there's still a hole where your sister was. But there's no fog at the moment.

ANJALI: Are any of the other graves disturbed or is everything pretty much the same? Like it seems undisturbed.

BRIAN: Go ahead and give me a notice check.

MARISHA: (hums in anticipation)

ANJALI: Four, oh, both of them exploded! So six and five, 11.

BRIAN: Okay, nothing else is disturbed. You guys didn't get to see a lot of the ground ground, because of the fog, last time you were there, but none of the other graves are disturbed. Nothing has been, everything looks quiet, everything looks quiet and calm. I would say three-quarters of the town has deserted it. There's no one visiting relatives, there's no one, everything is exactly as it were. Nothing else on the ground additional or anything like that.

TRAVIS: Arabella, I assume your sister's plot will do?

MARISHA: Yeah, that'd be fine. Let's make this quick, I don't want to be here too long.

TRAVIS: And a burial is what you would prefer in this case?

MARISHA: You think we should take any other precautionary measures, just in case?

TRAVIS: It kind of crept into my mind.

MARISHA: Yeah?

ANJALI: I would second that motion.

MARISHA: All right. Let's get her in the grave.

BRIAN: You guys will remember because she was one of the recently buried people in Deadwood, that her grave was a lot more shallow than the one that Reverend fell into so it's not a problem to just lay her down in there. It's only a couple feet.

KHARY: Now, by other precautions, do you are you saying we should burn young lady?

MARISHA: I think we should.

TRAVIS: Either that or remove the...

KHARY: Head?

TRAVIS: (stammering) Yes.

ANJALI: I think in many cultures cremation is considered a respectful way--

MARISHA: Yeah, you know, that would be--

ANJALI: Let's do it.

MARISHA: Mm-hmm. Just let me--

TRAVIS: Some lantern oil or...?

MATT: Take it, unscrew the lantern, just enough to start a fire, scatter it a bit.

MARISHA: I walk forward and I take off the Tear Catcher from around my neck and I pop open the lid and pour it out. Say my goodbyes. No more tears. Light a match, throw it.

BRIAN: The oil catches fire quickly. The body burns as the five of you stand around the grave. Body just burns.

TRAVIS: It's just occurred to me that we left EB Farnum in the in the drugstore. I mean, he is open but... Should we take similar precautions?

MARISHA: Ooh, oh good point.

KHARY: It seems these undead creatures...

MATT: I'll handle it.

ANJALI: Thank you.

MATT: Jump up onto the horse, and as I'm turning around, be like: Meet me at the Doc's as you guys are heading out of town. Hiyah! And just head off that way.

BRIAN: Okay. You ride back into town, only takes you a couple minutes. You get to Doc Cochran's office, the door's open. You go inside and face down is Farnum's body.

MATT: Take out a Bowie knife and just carve the head off.

BRIAN: Okay. You want to leave it there?

MATT: I'll take the head and kick it in a corner and throw a couple of heavy blankets over it just to keep it separate. Ain't got time to worry too much about it now.

TRAVIS: Mr. Sharpe! (laughter)

MATT: Goddamn it, Farnum!

MARISHA: Hello, Mr. Sharpe! (laughter)

BRIAN: Let's see roll for headbutting, that's about all he'd be able to do, maybe a bite? (laughter) No, you guys are smart, okay, cool. So you want to ride back up to the party?

MATT: Yeah.

BRIAN: While he's gone, is anything, you guys discuss anything, anything happen? He's going to be gone about five minutes. Farnum had a small head and neck. (laughter)

MARISHA: I'd say wait for the flames to die down a little bit and then we can bury her.

BRIAN: Because she was already pretty decomposed, it doesn't take very long, a few minutes for you to tell that even though the oil flame itself is still going, the body's pretty much the body's unrecognizable pretty much. It's turning to ash.

ANJALI: So we cover her up, we rebury her. Rebury whatever's left.

BRIAN: The fire goes out as the sand goes in.

MARISHA: Thank you all for that.

TRAVIS: You're very strong, I think your sister would be proud.

MARISHA: I think she would approve of my friends.

ANJALI: Has Clayton rejoined us?

BRIAN: Now's about when Clayton would have come back, yeah.

ANJALI: All right, I suppose now is the time for us to head out.

TRAVIS: All right, what time of day is it about?

BRIAN: It's going to be about, I would say, three to four in the afternoon, so you guys would get there probably just about at when night would be hitting. If you want to avoid the narrow canyon that you took a few days ago to get up to the site originally, it would put you there around nine o'clock.

MATT: What would be the chance of a second stampede, right? I mean, that would be kind of absurd.

ANJALI: That would be impressive.

TRAVIS: (giggles) (laughter)

KHARY: It's a well-scheduled stampede every night. (laughter)

TRAVIS: I'm no mathematician, but I feel like we should be safe.

MARISHA: The 5:00pm--

MATT: The migration cycle's very short here in North Dakota.

ANJALI: We might as well.

BRIAN: You motherfuckers. (laughter) I love you all.

MARISHA: All right.

ANJALI: Yeah.

BRIAN: You guys want to take the narrow canyon?

MATT: Take the narrow canyon.

KHARY: Let's take a walk.

BRIAN: Okay. When you guys ride out for a few hours, before you reach the narrow canyon, anything you guys want to say to each other, anything else additional before we move on? Just want to leave space for you.

MARISHA: Miriam? (birds chirping) When I came out to Deadwood, I had nothing to lose. I'm only richer now for having come here. I don't necessarily get the same sense from you, though. Unless I'm mistaken, which I can admit when I'm wrong.

ANJALI: No, you're right. There is still something that weighs on me.

MARISHA: Then why? Why do all this, why risk your life?

ANJALI: I didn't leave my husband behind in Cheyenne. I left him behind in a shack halfway between here and Cheyenne. Dead of the pox. You're not the only one who's had to burn a loved one.

MARISHA: I am so sorry.

ANJALI: He was a man of many talents and always told me that I had even more than he did. He was a healer and also a bit of a scoundrel.

MARISHA: He sounds like he could have been handy.

ANJALI: (chuckles) Before he lost his ability to speak coherently, he told me to make sure that he died a clean death. And so I burned him. Like your sister. I don't know what those many talents are other than procuring goods for other people and whatever it is that they might need. Right now, one of the things that I'm carrying, it may be of use to us, it may be of danger to us. I don't know what to do with it. I take out one of my snuff boxes and I open up and I unwrap two bottles of nitro.

MATT: On horseback?

ANJALI: No no, we've stopped.

MATT: Okay!

ANJALI: Don't worry!

MATT: I want to show you these. (laughter)

ANJALI: We've stopped, I've stopped. We've stopped behind, thank you. Thank you for that.

MATT: Just making sure!

ANJALI: I'm an excellent rider. There's plenty of cushion in here, too. (laughter)

ANJALI: Don't worry, we're finding the little valley this time. (Matt imitates something cracking open)

BRIAN: You'll see at the bottom of your character sheet you can roll for Nitro Boob Stability. (laughter) It's a new homebrew that we've added.

ANJALI: I haven't known what to do with it. But I feel like we may need to use it this time.

MARISHA: I have no earthly idea on where you got that, and I don't think that that's the important part here.

ANJALI: I don't think you want to know where I got any of the goods that I have. I suppose it's time to share this with the gentlemen, isn't it? (birds chirping) Gentlemen, I seem to have come into ownership of these two bottles. Unfortunately, and I have stopped, thank you very much. Unfortunately, I don't know that I have necessarily the athletic skill to be using them.

KHARY: Well, I'll be damned. Nice to have in your back pocket.

TRAVIS: Any other surprises you got on you like that?

ANJALI: Anyone?

KHARY: Anybody is a particularly good thrower? I'm not bad myself.

ANJALI: I suspect that you might be the best.

BRIAN: You do have a Throwing skill, you can check and see, you guys.

MARISHA: I have none.

TRAVIS: I'm amazing.

MARISHA: Really?

ANJALI: I don't believe him.

BRIAN: That's a lie.

ANJALI: That is not true.

TRAVIS: I think I need both those nitros at my disposal.

ANJALI: That is not true.

KHARY: I'll go ahead and keep those.

ANJALI: Okay, so I wrap them back up in the extra fabric that I wrapped them up in and then inside the box and I hand them to him.

BRIAN: Smart move. Reverend, okay.

MATT: As the sun's starting to get low and they were having this little moment here, I just look out. I have a question for y'all real fast, if you don't mind. We've seen some strange things, we've shared some strange things. There's one thing that's been eating away at me. Some of the things you been doing. That little shared dream, that Dealer, whatever it is y'all keep toying with out there. Done some pretty great stuff, but... (exhales tremulously) Aren't a lot of things that scare me, but that scares the living fuck out of me. (swallows nervously) Do you trust it?

MARISHA: No.

KHARY: At this point, I'm not sure what to think. I'm just trying to survive.

TRAVIS: I know that faith, sometimes blind faith, has become a part of my everyday routine, so, I don't know if trust is the right word, but I've given myself over to it. It's helped us, hasn't hurt us yet. That's about all I can say.

MATT: Faith's an interesting point, but survival. Survival I can understand. Okay. Thank you.

BRIAN: Okay, anything else?

ANJALI: Miriam? Fuck any God-given talents. I think you've earned all of yours.

ANJALI: Thank you, young lady. Let's ride.

BRIAN: Okay, you guys get back on your horses, continue the ride, as you crest the familiar final hill. You guys made it through the canyon with no stampede. (quiet laughing) I had 400 horse minis painted, but I'm afraid-- (laughter)

MATT: The final encounter!

BRIAN: Take a little bit too much time.

MATT: With every horse in the West!

TRAVIS: We see three hyenas up on the ledge and one of them's like (goofy Ed laughter). (laughter)

ANJALI: There's a warthog and a little lemur! (laughter)

BRIAN: As you crest that familiar final hill to the clearing, where just a few yards before you is the snake pit, there's no longer smoke coming from it, you would have seen it sooner.

MATT: Not yet.

BRIAN: But you do see with its back turned to you, a hooded figure in a cloak.

TRAVIS: (inhales sharply) (sniffs)

BRIAN: Looking down into the pit. As you guys... Are you going to stay on your horses or do you want to get off? You're still several yards back.

TRAVIS: I'm going to stay astride.

BRIAN: Stay astride?

MARISHA: Has the figure seemed to notice our presence?

BRIAN: It's just looking down in the pit right now.

MATT: I'm going to say horses aren't the most quiet.

ANJALI: Yeah, I would second that notion.

MATT: Things to approach, maybe it's best we take this to foot.

ANJALI: Agreed.

MARISHA: Some on cavalry, some on foot? (intense string music)

TRAVIS: I'll stay on horseback, but I'll stay back here.

BRIAN: Make a stealth check for me.

MATT: All of us, or just him?

BRIAN: Just him.

TRAVIS: Explode that motherfucker. Explode that motherfucker!

ANJALI: Get it!

TRAVIS: Explode that motherfucker! 19.

ANJALI: Na-na-na-na-nineteen, 19!

BRIAN: You can get closer with that horse if you want to.

TRAVIS: Both the horse and I both go... (laughter)

MARISHA: Bink bink bink bink bink!

BRIAN: Anyone else going to stay on horseback?

MATT: Stepping off.

BRIAN: Stepping off?

ANJALI: I'll trust that.

MARISHA: Yeah, I'll trust that, I'll pop off as well.

BRIAN: Okay.

MATT: Make sure all guns are fully loaded.

BRIAN: Guns are loaded.

MATT: Hammer's cocked.

ANJALI: The rest of the horses are tied back there.

BRIAN: Yeah, you guys would tie them off at trees, probably similar to the same place where you guys did before. All right, as you start slowly and quietly and very stealthily while on a horse, approach. As you get about I don't know, I would say 15 feet away, you see the figure turn its head towards you and remove the cloak. As he does, you see what's left of the familiar white hair and mustache of Doc Cochran. He turns around and he looks at each of you and he says, "I'm the Servant. "You're servants, but I'm the Servant." You can tell his face starts to distort and you see the cloak start to rip open, the buttons are ripping open. You see his mouth start to open wider and wider and out of his mouth you see a snake-like tongue come out. But the snake-like tongue is followed by a snake's mouth and you see Doc Cochran's head starts to be peeled back like skin as a giant snake head comes out of his body, followed by another giant snake head. Shedding, almost completely now, the body. Leaving the body of Doc Cochran obliterated in the dirt. As the body is about to hit the ground, a third snake head comes out. It's time to see what cards you're dealt. (groaning)

TRAVIS: Holy shit! (laughs)

MATT: That's grotesque.

KHARY: Is this a three-headed snake, is that's what happening? Or is it three different snakes?

TRAVIS: It looks like it's a three-headed snake.

ANJALI: Looks like a three-headed snake.

KHARY: It's a three-headed snake!

TRAVIS: (laughs)

BRIAN: We've swapped our map out.

TRAVIS: Ooh, ace of spades!

ANJALI: Yes, Reverend! Goddamn it, I'm so slow.

TRAVIS: Four of clubs. Nine of hearts. BRIAN and

TRAVIS: Queen of hearts.

MARISHA: Oh, thank you, Miss Miriam!

ANJALI: You're welcome, you're welcome.

TRAVIS: Ten of diamonds!

ANJALI: Miss Miriam is always so slow.

BRIAN: So. As you have watched Doc Cochran transform and basically be had his body shed from him like a snake, you saw three snake heads poke out and as the end of Doc Cochran's body is being shedded off like skin, you see two feet (thuds) step out from the remains of Doc's body and a long tail. (shouting)

MARISHA: What is that?!

TRAVIS: Oh shit.

BRIAN: Technically, he's standing right outside the pit, but so you guys can see what we're looking at here.

ANJALI: Oh my goodness.

KHARY: Jesus!

BRIAN: I will let you put yourselves wherever you want to put yourselves.

ANJALI: Oh!

MATT: On the perimeter? Or on the board?

BRIAN: Yeah, I would say that if you guys, while this was happening, started running in crazy directions or sticking together and going somewhere, I would say it took probably about 30 seconds for that whole transformation to be complete, and so once you saw that stuff, freaking out, if you guys wanted to run around, do whatever, you're absolutely... But you can place yourselves where you would like to be on the board.

TRAVIS: I'm fucking riding, I'm up on my goddamn feet!

ANJALI: He's standing on a horse!

TRAVIS: Preacher got secrets!

BRIAN: You are on a horse.

MARISHA: It's like a Cirque du Soleil act. (laughter)

ANJALI: I'm getting behind something.

BRIAN: Yeah, on foot, probably couldn't get too far in that time period. Probably going to try and get about there.

BRIAN: You guys can get yourselves onto the board, but not super deep into the board, please.

ANJALI: Behind that guy, yeah.

MARISHA: Where you going, Aloysius?

KHARY: Well... I'd say I'm going to run over there near Miriam in that area.

BRIAN: Okay.

MARISHA: I'm going to be... Also near these.

ANJALI: Just push us behind the rock a little bit, both of us.

MARISHA: I'm going to be behind that rock.

ANJALI: All right, so.

BRIAN: You guys feel good?

BRIAN: Yeah. I mean...

BRIAN: As he steps out-- as good as you can, right, yeah. As he steps out into this form,

TRAVIS: Shit.

BRIAN: He's looking and you see all three of the heads looking in different directions and marking where all of you are located that can pretty much see. He's tall, he can see all of you. Most of you are about half or whatever covered, but he can see pretty high up there. For now, he's going to stay where he is. Reverend Mason.

TRAVIS: Uh-huh?

BRIAN: You are up first.

TRAVIS: Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh. I am going to ride my steed around his six.

BRIAN: Okay.

TRAVIS: Can I come within enough distance of the pit to look inside and see what's in there while I am standing on the top of my, no.

ANJALI: No, he's not really standing.

BRIAN: I would say, yeah, you can see down the pit, and it looks as it was before except I would say the corpse of the Irishmen are a little bit more decomposed. There's still thousands of snake corpses and bones and things like that, that are in there.

TRAVIS: No movement?

BRIAN: No movement that you can see at this time, no.

TRAVIS: Okay, great.

BRIAN: Outside of the three heads, the three-headed snake.

TRAVIS: Okay.

BRIAN: That's the only thing moving right now.

TRAVIS: So I'll get around here just to fully surround him. We'll see what a little damage does and with my offhand, I'll reach behind my back and pull out my 40-caliber Starr revolver, cock the hammer and fire off a shot.

BRIAN: Wow, okay, not your shotgun.

TRAVIS: No.

BRIAN: Okay! The Reverend has produced a new weapon into the fold. Let's have a look.

TRAVIS: (grunts in annoyance) Nope. I miss, it's a two.

BRIAN: You miss, okay.

MATT: Let me see the cards?

BRIAN: Your movement is done. Arabella?

MARISHA: Oh shit.

BRIAN: You are placed here behind this rock, group of rockings.

MARISHA: I don't know what to do! As soon as I hear the Reverend's shot, I'm going to take that as a sign and I will pull out my Colt Army and fire off a shot and see. I'll crouch down, try and use the rock to steady my aim. Four, success.

BRIAN: Go ahead and roll to see if you do damage or not.

MARISHA: Okay. Eight damage.

BRIAN: All right, you fire your weapon and from where you are, it hits him in one of his arms and the other one hits him in his leg and he moves towards you a few feet.

MARISHA: Oh.

BRIAN: But he does not appear to be affected by those two shots.

MARISHA: He doesn't appear to be affected?

BRIAN: Does not. Do you want to move anywhere?

MARISHA: Yeah, as soon as I start seeing him come towards us, I'm going to freak out and start heading towards this rock over here.

BRIAN: Over here?

MARISHA: Yes.

BRIAN: Yeah, go ahead, Travis.

TRAVIS: (footsteps and falling, grunts)

MARISHA: (cries out) (breathes quickly) Thank you.

BRIAN: All right, Clayton "The Coffin" Sharpe?

MATT: Okay.

MARISHA: Six, yeah.

MATT: All right, seeing him storm away from that hole heading in the direction of a large cluster of my current allies--

MARISHA: Oh shit!

MATT: Based on the somewhat effective pep talk from Mr. Fogg over there, I look down at my hands, envisioning that moment the day before seeing those sparks of energy shooting through the veins and whisper to myself, I don't know what or who gave us this but if there's a time to give in, now it is. I'm going to step out from behind the rocks and trudging forward, focusing on the glistening eyes of the serpent faces, and attempt to rob them of their vision, just concentrating as I try and invoke Blind on them.

TRAVIS: (squeals)

BRIAN: Blind, okay.

TRAVIS: Yeah! Come on, man!

KHARY: Come on, baby! Come on, blindness!

BRIAN: How many power points would you like to bid for?

MATT: Two points. To bid for? Oh (chuckling nervously).

MARISHA: Don't get greedy! Greed ain't cheap!

TRAVIS: Choose wisely!

MATT: (sighs) I'm going to bid three.

BRIAN: Going to bid three?

MARISHA: Oh my god!

TRAVIS: I like it, I like it! Let's go! Go big or go home!

MATT: (sighs deeply and nervously)

MARISHA: Embrace your power!

BRIAN: Six.

TRAVIS: Okay.

BRIAN: Clubs, four of diamonds, jack of hearts

TRAVIS: Oh boy, we're all over the place.

BRIAN: Ace.

KHARY: Ace high!

BRIAN: Spades.

MARISHA: Queen's high, but--

KHARY: Four!

MARISHA: Oh shit, oh shit!

KHARY: You've at least got two, right?

MARISHA: Trying to bid for three.

TRAVIS: No.

MATT: No, I bid three.

BRIAN: He bid three and the dealer gave him two. So you can use your grit points, which is one, to replace one of the cards, if you'd like to. Just choose wisely which card you'd like to replace.

MATT: Oh man. I'm going to have to take back that six because them face cards, I think, is where the luck is. Keep my friends around me.

MARISHA: Oh my god, come on, come on.

BRIAN: I'm just going to pull from the middle.

MARISHA: Another pair, another pair!

TRAVIS: Nah! (disappointed groans)

BRIAN: Sadly, Clayton, your spell has no effect. You focus,

MATT: Worth a shot. Was worth a shot!

KHARY: That damn circus!

MATT: First to cast a spell, first to fail at a spell, that's the Matthew Mercer brand. (laughter)

BRIAN: You feel that rush of energy inside of you that has become familiar to you since you guys had that dream and were gifted these huckster powers. As you focus and you try super hard to cast Blindness, he turns around and looks toward you, one of the heads and he says, "Weaker servant." Then he turns back around and he's going to move back over towards Arabella. Do you want to move at all?

MATT: I'm going to continue to pursue with what rest of movement I can, which is two, three, four, five, six. That's it, that's my turn. (deeply exhales)

MARISHA: You tried, that was so good.

BRIAN: Hey, most of you fuckers' spells have been working, so uh, you know?

KHARY: Would do, would do!

MATT: Ain't that true?

ANJALI: In fairness, you bid for much higher than the rest of us.

BRIAN: That's true.

MATT: Would have been worth it.

ANJALI: I'm the only one left that hasn't done it and I don't know that I will!

BRIAN: Aloysius Fogg. It's your turn, my friend.

KHARY: Well, there's no use in running around with some nitro in my hand. I say...

TRAVIS: Come on!

KHARY: I was going to throw it into the pit and see if maybe that affected what he was doing, but he's in the way, so I'm going to throw it throw it at him through... If it hits, if it misses him, maybe it'll fall into the pit.

TRAVIS: Sure.

BRIAN: Okay, you can definitely hit it from where you're at. As far as your throwing distance goes. Make a throwing check for me, please.

MARISHA: Come on!

KHARY: Throwing check. Let's see, okay, yeah.

ANJALI: You got it, you got it, you got it. KHARY and

ANJALI: Four!

KHARY: Four goes wild.

BRIAN: Okay. Go ahead and roll for me 3d6s.

KHARY: 3d6s, all right. Roll two first.

ANJALI: Yes!

KHARY: That is 11, one explodes!

MARISHA: Yes!

TRAVIS: Keep going, keep going.

KHARY: Three, so that's...

ANJALI: 14 and you have one more.

KHARY: That's 14 and one more. Five! 19!

BRIAN: Total of 19?

KHARY: Total of 19.

BRIAN: Give me a second please. With a 19 damage, I want you to describe for me throwing the nitro at the creature. How do you want to throw this at it? (quiet, knowing laughter)

KHARY: Well, let's see. I spit in my hand grab the nitro and chuck it like a shot put. You know, yeah, maybe I'll spin a little, why don't I spin? Let's just spin a little bit and chuck this thing right there right at its chest. I want to make sure that I don't miss the thing that's holding these heads together.

BRIAN: Okay.

ANJALI: So it's like mutual neck area?

KHARY: Yeah yeah, the mutual neck area.

MARISHA: Mutual neck!

BRIAN: Okay, as you do--

MATT: That's my high school band.

MARISHA: The Mutual Neck Area?

BRIAN: You throw the eight ounce vial of nitro at the creature. It hits in the amulet around its neck and explodes. The heads, you see them spin violently and thrash at the air as if they could stop whatever was happening too late. They were not expecting this. This head is shaken, this head is wounded. This head is wounded.

MARISHA: Oh my god, yes! (cheering)

KHARY: Oh my god!

BRIAN: As it settles, he turns around and you see all of the heads looking in different directions and he definitely saw where that was coming from and moves closer to where you guys are. Fogg, would you like to make any movement now that you've finished your action?

KHARY: Yeah, let's run towards the pit. Behind it!

TRAVIS: Fuck you!

BRIAN: No, he said behind it, no, it's fine, it's fine.

KHARY: No no, you can jump over it, but come--

ANJALI: Behind.

KHARY: Exactly. Where it's going towards away from the pit. Come forward, come forward. There you go, there you go.

BRIAN: Okay, up next, it's going to be the former Doc Cochran's turn.

MATT: (groans sadly)

ANJALI: Oh no, me. Sad for me.

BRIAN: He's going to turn around as he saw Fogg running this way and he is extremely pissed. He's so mad he doesn't even want to keep this wound. He wants it to... He's going to come towards you and he's going to make a bite attack with one of his heads.

KHARY: Huh.

ANJALI: Oh, wow.

BRIAN: Okay, he's fast. He's on foot, he's fast, he's got arms, he's got three heads, he gets to you rather quickly. He goes to take a bite at you. You are shaken. And you have one wound.

MARISHA: Ooh!

KHARY: All right.

BRIAN: After that, he's going to turn back around to face the direction of Miriam. Miriam, it is now your turn.

ANJALI: Can I run first and shoot later?

BRIAN: You absolutely can.

ANJALI: I'm going to run as far as I can around the back and towards the, like in Arabella's direction.

TRAVIS: Four, five, six.

ANJALI: There we go. Once I get as far as I think I can, I'm going to spin around and I'm going to I'm going to brace myself as quickly as I can and shoot with my Winchester.

BRIAN: Okay, go ahead and fire.

ANJALI: (exhales) Miss.

BRIAN: Okay. You can spend a poker chip to reroll.

ANJALI: I would like to reroll. Six.

MARISHA: Yaas!

KHARY: There you go, explode!

ANJALI: Six!

KHARY: Explode!

MARISHA: Yes!

ANJALI: Six!

KHARY: Explode!

MARISHA: Oh my god!

ANJALI: And two, so that's 20. I spin around, I turn, I brace and I say: (yelling) You stay away from him!

BRIAN: 20?

ANJALI: Yes.

BRIAN: Go ahead and roll damage, please.

ANJALI: Fuck off.

BRIAN: That definitely hits.

MARISHA: Does she roll extra dice?

MATT: This would be an extra d6.

BRIAN: Extra d6.

ANJALI: Okay, so then, two, exploding eight so that's 10. Ten and three is 13 and four is 17.

BRIAN: 17, okay.

ANJALI: I aim for that same mutual neck. I want it going down.

BRIAN: Okay, from the angle that you are at--

ANJALI: Can I?

BRIAN: You fire, sure, you fire, you hit just under the amulet, piercing his scaly thick nasty skin. He's going to spend a Benny to heal himself.

ANJALI: Can he do that when it's not his--

BRIAN: Wounded him again.

ANJALI: Okay.

BRIAN: He might be able to perhaps because of the initiative card that he pulled, he might be able to for some other reason. Like you have, he healed himself quickly and you've wounded him again. Okay, Reverend Mason, it's now your turn.

TRAVIS: I'll use that free action to continue around and try and get closer to Mr. Sharpe.

BRIAN: Okay, so you, on horseback, can move faster and you can do another free action there. Yep, there you go.

TRAVIS: And I'll hop off the horse.

BRIAN: You want to hop off the horse, okay.

TRAVIS: I'll slap it on the ass, be like, Go home, Sally!

BRIAN: That horse runs in that direction as fast as it possibly can.

TRAVIS: (neighs)

BRIAN: Okay, Arabella.

MARISHA: Oh, jeez. (indecisive humming) I'm going to can I run over and peek down into the pit?

BRIAN: Yeah yeah yeah, you can do that. You could see down in there.

MARISHA: Okay. I'm going to run over, look down, what do I see?

BRIAN: You see exactly what you saw last time, except no smoke, you see the snake corpses, you see bones, you see the dead Irishmen that were there before, they're just a little bit more decomposed.

MARISHA: Okay.

BRIAN: Yeah. You don't see any other creatures like Doc Cochran or anything, just the...

MARISHA: Just a big ole pit.

BRIAN: The big ole pit with the big ole snake guts and bones and everything in there.

MARISHA: I still have time to do an action?

BRIAN: Of course!

MARISHA: All right, I'm going to pull out the dynamite.

BRIAN: Okay. One stick, the grouping?

MARISHA: You said a grouping is...

KHARY: Four.

MARISHA: But it's a shorter throw range, right?

MATT: True.

MARISHA: Yeah, because you're just in this case, it's not really a throw. You're just going to drop it in there.

MARISHA: Into the pit?

TRAVIS: Yeah, if you miss, that's just Darwinism. (laughter)

MARISHA: Is there anything in the bottom of the pit worth doing that for?

BRIAN: All you can see is the bones and the Irishman.

TRAVIS: Yes! Bodies, dynamite, fucking do it!

MARISHA: I want to see what happens. I'm going to light it--

TRAVIS: Yeah!

MARISHA: And throw the whole thing in.

MATT: All four sticks, all right.

MARISHA: All four sticks! I don't know, I don't know!

BRIAN: All four sticks? Roll 4d6 for me, please.

MARISHA: Oh boy. (grunts of disgust) That one explodes. Another six is 20. Exploding again. 24 damage.

BRIAN: Okay.

TRAVIS: Yo.

BRIAN: You throw that grouping of dynamite into the pit and it lands all the way down, it's about 30 feet or so down, I think I said before. It lands directly in the center and you're just breathing as you're watching the fuse just get closer and closer and closer.

MARISHA: Come on, come on, come on!

BRIAN: There is an explosion and all the way up past the pit I would say 20 feet above where all of you are standing is snake guts and bones and pieces of Irishmen's body and teeth and dirt and pieces of the mining equipment and everything just starts getting exploding all around.

MATT: (whooshing sound of things falling)

BRIAN: The sides of the pit start filling in with sand and the pit starts collapsing on itself and it gets to the point to where enough of it basically has filled the pit to where it's only about five to six feet deep now.

MARISHA: Oh shit.

BRIAN: It has been totally filled in by that dynamite blast. Except for about five or six feet of the top of the pit there.

MARISHA: Okay.

BRIAN: That sucker, that was an explosion.

MARISHA: I don't know if that helped anything, but I did it!

KHARY: Does this affect the Cochran in any way? None whatsoever.

MATT: "The Cochran."

BRIAN: No, it doesn't. He's definitely pissed, but he doesn't seem to react to that very much at all outside of trying to figure out who his target is going to be. (groaning) Fantastic job.

ANJALI: Mm-hmm!

MARISHA: I guess?

BRIAN: Clayton! Since you--

MARISHA: I don't know, I guess?

TRAVIS: If you didn't do it, I was going to.

MARISHA: Okay, okay, okay. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

BRIAN: Clayton.

MATT: Yes, Marshal?

BRIAN: It's now your turn, but before your turn. Because you did fail to meet the required points in your bid--

MATT: Right.

BRIAN: -- with the Dealer, there may be some backlash.

MATT: Wouldn't surprise me.

TRAVIS: Herpe. (laughter)

MATT: Clayton, I need you to make a vigor role, please.

TRAVIS: Oh shit, that's serious.

MATT: Great, no, perfect. Perfect, all righty.

MARISHA: Come on, you're good at this right?

MATT: I am. Eight.

BRIAN: You only suffer one point of fatigue.

MATT: Okay, okay.

KHARY: There you go.

ANJALI: Wow, what would have...

MARISHA: I want to know what happens if you fail?

ANJALI: That was not even a fail, that was an eight and he still got one.

MARISHA: It was a success, yeah.

ANJALI: Good lord, all right, all right.

BRIAN: It is now your turn if you would like to move and act.

MATT: All right, so the one point of fatigue for me is minus one to my checks, is that how that works?

BRIAN: No. Two points of fatigue and you are incapacitated.

MATT: Ah.

BRIAN: Yes.

MATT: Problematic, okay. Okay. I feel the wind drawn out of me and looking at my hands, I don't know why I tried to deviate from my specialty in the first place! (guns cocking) Pull out both guns.

BRIAN: Okay.

MATT: I'm just going to go ahead and step forward (guns firing). Just firing at the Previously Known As Doc Cochran.

ANJALI: I'd like to call him The DeCochran.

BRIAN: The DeCochran?

MARISHA: The DeCochran.

BRIAN: The dodecaCochran.

MATT: I'm going to step over here.

MARISHA: The Dick Cock Ring.

MATT: I'm just going to make two shots.

BRIAN: Okay, go ahead and roll for firing your weapon, please.

MATT: A five on the first shot.

BRIAN: Okay.

MATT: Ooh, exploding on the eight. 15 minus two because it's off hand, 13 second shot.

BRIAN: Both of those hit, go ahead and roll damage.

MATT: All right!

BRIAN: Throw in one more d6. Plus one.

MATT: First, one. Four damage.

BRIAN: Okay.

MATT: (high-pitched bullet strike) Second roll, this one hit hard. Nine damage.

BRIAN: Okay.

MARISHA: Nein!

KHARY: Nein!

MATT: Nine.

BRIAN: Neither one of them hit, they both miss. He's moving so quickly.

MATT: Son of a fuck, piece of shit!

BRIAN: His tail is moving so quickly, your first shot he bats it away with the tail the second shot, one of the heads just ducks out of the way.

MATT: All right, I'm going to go ahead and take a step back this way with my last bit of movement there.

BRIAN: Step back there, okay.

MATT: (guns cocking) Cock them both, ready for the next round, I'm done.

BRIAN: Ready for the next round, okay. Aloysius Fogg.

KHARY: I need to get rid of these hula hoops.

BRIAN: Yeah, you can roll, you need to roll to be unshaken. So go ahead and make a vigor roll.

KHARY: Vigor roll!

BRIAN: Or spirit, spirit, sorry.

ANJALI: Spirit roll?

BRIAN: Spirit.

KHARY: Spirit?

BRIAN: Yeah, it's right above vigor there.

KHARY: Okay then.

MARISHA: That's good, that's good.

KHARY: No no, we got--

ANJALI: Spirit, that's even better.

KHARY: Eight and... All right, here we go, come on.

ANJALI: Hit.

KHARY: Yeah, we got a hit, we got a five and a two, so seven.

BRIAN: Fantastic. Aloysius Fogg is no longer shaken. But you're still wounded. Go ahead and take your wound.

KHARY: All right, well. You know what? (shot glass thumps the table) What doesn't kill you make you stronger.

MARISHA: (laughs)

BRIAN: Go ahead and turn that face down for me. There we go.

KHARY: Beautiful!

BRIAN: So you still have an action and movement.

KHARY: Well, I... I grab that other nitro.

ANJALI: Go for it, baby, go for it, baby!

KHARY: I say under my breath to myself: Turn your back on me! I run cut half the distance between myself and The DeCochran.

TRAVIS: You run head towards it?

KHARY: Yeah, yeah.

ANJALI: He cuts his distance in half

KHARY: Pretty much smash this thing right into the neck, the back of his neck.

BRIAN: You want to... smash it with your hand into the back of his--

KHARY: No no no, I mean-- (laughter)

BRIAN: Just checking! Just checking.

KHARY: Like a far away slam dunk, you know, that it's-- that I throw it, but it's-- Yeah, yeah, yeah. Very close range.

BRIAN: To the back of its, to the back?

KHARY: To the back of his neck.

BRIAN: Okay, go ahead and give me a throwing roll, please.

KHARY: Throwing roll, let's see. All right, that's a hit! That is seven.

BRIAN: Yeah, go ahead and roll damage. It's going to be 3d6 for the nitro.

KHARY: Let's see, seven. And one more. Is a 12.

TRAVIS: Get it.

BRIAN: As you throw the nitro at the back of this creature, it hits it just where the back of the amulet is. You see it thunder forward. It turns around, it's flailing its arms wildly and it goes, actually turns around, and falls into the pit. Suddenly you see, as the flames start to spread and catch over its body, former Doc Cochran explodes. You see shards of him go everywhere, all over the place. Completely obliterates it. Then the dirt underneath, as it starts to settle. The dirt starts to move in different places in a way that looks familiar to you and you see that Doc Cochran has exploded into several smaller, but still terrifying creatures that are now crawled their way out of the pit.

KHARY: Son of a bitch.

BRIAN: You recognize these creatures from the first time you were at this pit.

TRAVIS: Thanks a lot, Mr. Fogg. (laughter)

MATT: Into the goddamn frying pan.

MARISHA: Fuck! Okay okay okay.

BRIAN: Extremely successful with the nitro, my friends, congratulations.

MARISHA: Yeah, I think we just got to Stage Two a little bit faster than before.

ANJALI: That's all right!

BRIAN: Wait til you see Stage Nine. (laughter)

MARISHA: It's a nine course meal?

ANJALI: We're going to be here for nine days!

BRIAN: Okay, so.

KHARY: So do I still have a movement action?

BRIAN: Yeah, go ahead and move if you want!

KHARY: Can I move--

BRIAN: You want to go back behind the rocks?

KHARY: Run away! Yes.

BRIAN: Back here? This cool?

KHARY: Yeah, yeah.

BRIAN: Okay, great.

KHARY: This thing was a son of a bitch.

BRIAN: Miriam, it's now your turn.

ANJALI: Thank you for noticing that my giant... Noticing that the closest creature to any of us happens to be the one closest to the Reverend, I would like to... Can I shoot that far with my rifle? I've got my Winchester.

BRIAN: With your rifle, yeah, yeah. You're over there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

ANJALI: I'm going to aim for that little fucker.

BRIAN: Okay.

ANJALI: Not so little.

TRAVIS: Can also move beforehand, if you want to, whatever you want to do.

ANJALI: I don't know that I want to move towards that guy, (high-pitched stammering from both). Okay, sure. (intentional stammering) Just let her be slightly cowardly.

TRAVIS: Nothing about this is cowardly. This is amazing.

ANJALI: Six.

TRAVIS: Yes!

ANJALI: And five, 11.

MARISHA: Yes, yes?

ANJALI: 11 to hit.

BRIAN: 11 to hit, it hits. Go ahead and roll damage for me, please.

ANJALI: Ooh!

BRIAN: So add, yeah, add another d6. Leave that, that's fine. It's not cocked.

KHARY: Six, no, no, that's--

ANJALI: But that's on a d8. (laughter)

KHARY: I was like...

MARISHA: It's a six!

ANJALI: Oh wait, 12, got my 2d8. (cheering)

KHARY: There we go!

ANJALI: That is 20. 23 and... 27.

BRIAN: Okay. Right as that--

TRAVIS: Shit.

BRIAN: Right as that creepy looking snake is about to lunge at the Reverend...

TRAVIS: (nervous yelling)

BRIAN: Reverend, you hear a shot from behind you and you don't see anything except for you feel all of the blood and guts and skeleton bones of that creature as it's exploded, fly against your back and your body. That creature...

MARISHA: Yes!

BRIAN: Very well done, Miriam.

ANJALI: So as that happens, I just start laughing and I go: I still got you, Reverend! And I move behind him this way. (laughter)

BRIAN: Okay.

TRAVIS: Thank you?

BRIAN: Up next is going to be this one here, is this you?

MATT: That's me.

TRAVIS: Clayton, yeah.

BRIAN: He's going to turn around toward you. I need you to make a vigor roll, please.

MATT: Oh perfect, that's good, that's a good sign, right? Four.

BRIAN: Four, okay. The creature's just looking at you. It's now Reverend Mason's turn.

TRAVIS: I will swipe the muck off of my person and I will pull out the shotgun and I'll move half my speed towards...

BRIAN: Here?

TRAVIS: Yep.

BRIAN: Okay, so, one, two, three.

TRAVIS: Four, five, give me two more.

BRIAN: You want to do two more? Okay.

TRAVIS: Yeah, come here, motherfuck. I'll empty both barrels into Squidward over here.

BRIAN: Okay, good. (laughter) Squidward!

TRAVIS: I'm going to use one of these to add a d6 to that roll.

BRIAN: Okay, please do.

TRAVIS: That's a six.

MARISHA: Yes!

TRAVIS: So that's 10, so 12.

BRIAN: That hits, go ahead and roll damage for me with that gun, please.

TRAVIS: So that's 3d6 plus another d6. That explodes.

ANJALI: Yes!

MARISHA: Get it.

TRAVIS: So then... 12.

MARISHA: Get it.

TRAVIS: 15 and an additional d6. That's 17 points of damage. Both barrels (gun firing twice).

BRIAN: You are close enough to this creature and it's moving but it doesn't want to fall back in the pit, so you blast it and you see the whole top half of it go and all this ooze and this black tar starts screeching out of it and the second half of its body tumbles into the--

TRAVIS: Yeah.

BRIAN: Tumbles into the pit. (cheering) You have a square left of movement, I believe? If you want to.

TRAVIS: I'm okay where I am.

BRIAN: Okay. Arabella, I need you to make a vigor roll for me, please.

MARISHA: All right. Six! Exploded out. Five, 11.

BRIAN: Fogg, give me a vigor roll as well, please.

KHARY: All right, vigor, vigor. Let's see, five.

BRIAN: Wonderful. Clayton, make a vigor roll for me.

MATT: (sighs deeply) That's a three!

BRIAN: That's a three?

MATT: Yes, a three. So that's a--

ANJALI: You have a benny!

MARISHA: You do have your Bennies.

MATT: I'm saving them.

TRAVIS: Yeah!

ANJALI: That's one has been spent--

BRIAN: So. As this creature's looking at you and you're looking at it, it doesn't mouth anything, but you hear in your mind, "You think this is all I've got?"

TRAVIS: Oh shit.

BRIAN: You gain another point of fatigue.

MARISHA: (gasps)

ANJALI: Oof.

BRIAN: You now have two points of fatigue.

MATT: Okay.

MATT: (wheezing)

TRAVIS: Oh shit.

MATT: (wheezing)

ANJALI: Oh, Clayton.

BRIAN: This creature, after finishing that with you, is going to slither its way over behind the Reverend and he is actually going to make a bite attack against the Reverend.

TRAVIS: Fast little fucker.

MARISHA: Bite him in the ass.

BRIAN: Yeah, they can slither-- they can slither fast-- They can slither fast and far. So. Oh boy.

MARISHA: Two of these guys left. Two of these guys left!

KHARY: Can I throw my Benny at the serpent? (laughter) MARISHA and

ANJALI: Ping! Ow! ALL: (various cries of pain and complaining)

MARISHA: It's just rude! (laughter)

ANJALI: No no, no, less dice.

TRAVIS: Smaller numbers. Nine, six, two.

ANJALI: One, just a couple of ones.

BRIAN: All right. The creature slithers up behind you. It wraps itself around your leg, pulls you to the ground and bites you right in your stomach.

TRAVIS: Oh shit!

MARISHA: What?

BRIAN: You are shaken. And you have one wound.

TRAVIS: Oh fuck. Okay.

BRIAN: The creature is then going to slither away in this direction and hang back. As he does that, this one slithers away in this direction and hangs back.

ANJALI: Very interesting.

MATT: Bartender! I believe we have a wounded Reverend over here.

MARISHA: Ooh, are you going to take that wound or you going to soak that wound?

BRIAN: Are you going to take the wound or are you going to soak that wound? You have one Fate Chip left.

TRAVIS: I will soak the wound. No. Let it ride. (laughter)

MATT: Yeah!

TRAVIS: Denied.

IVAN: There you are, sir.

TRAVIS: Thanks! With my thanks. (exhales with vigor)

BRIAN: Mr. Aloysius Fogg.

KHARY: Well, my revolving rifle is empty. But my revolving pistol is not.

TRAVIS: Yeah!

KHARY: I unholster that thing--

ANJALI: You're right at it.

KHARY: You know what, I mean if I could, I'd stick the hilt of this thing in its mouth.

BRIAN: Okay.

KHARY: And pull the trigger.

BRIAN: It's moving around a little too much for you to get close to it and do that. You can try to stick it in its mouth, but I would make you roll at a minus four.

KHARY: All right, well, let's just--

BRIAN: Because that would be a called shot. KHARY and

BRIAN: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

BRIAN: So if you want to just shoot at it, since you're so close,

KHARY: Sure, sure.

BRIAN: Go ahead.

KHARY: All right. Let's see, that's a six, minus one, so it hits.

BRIAN: That does hit, go ahead and roll damage for me for that shot.

KHARY: All right. One! And a five.

BRIAN: So the snake moves out of the way, he's going to slither away from you because you just shot at him and he's going to try and bite at Miriam's legs. It's going to make an attack at you, dear Miriam. Let's hope the thickness of your gown is snakebite-proof.

ANJALI: And my leather coat!

ANJALI: And your leather coat! (exhales slowly)

TRAVIS: (laughs worriedly) What words are you thinking right now?

MARISHA: I know, I know!

ANJALI: Want me to tell you what I'm thinking?

KHARY: (grunts)

BRIAN: Miriam, you are shaken.

ANJALI: Okay, all right.

BRIAN: It is now your turn, you have movement and action. What would you like to do?

MARISHA: All right, I-- There's not like attack of opportunities or anything if I move away from this guy? Is there? Okay. I'll back up a little bit. Woop! And I am going to think about what I pulled off at the Gem Saloon yesterday, at the church, and I'm going to remember Reverend screaming, "Don't we have lanterns?" Like six seconds ago, and I'm going to channel that lantern light and I'm going to try and cast Light again.

BRIAN: Okay, okay.

MARISHA: Because I'm fucking tired of these motherfucking snakes in these motherfucking Dakota hills! (cheering)

ANJALI: Okay!

BRIAN: Okay. The Dealer would like to know how many points you would like to bid for, only two?

MARISHA: T-two!

BRIAN: Okay. Jack of hearts. Four of diamonds.

MARISHA: I just got a chill.

BRIAN: Seven of diamonds.

MARISHA: Come on, come on.

BRIAN: Six of diamonds.

TRAVIS: Ooh, diamonds, come on.

MARISHA: Come on, come on. Is that eight?

ANJALI: So we have four...

TRAVIS: Is the last one diamonds too?

ANJALI: Those are four diamonds, right?

BRIAN: It is.

TRAVIS: You got a chance at the gut shot.

ANJALI: Get rid of that jack, right, because--

TRAVIS: Yeah, for sure.

ANJALI: Because that would be a flush, no? Or am I making that up in my head?

TRAVIS: No, no, you got another diamond, you're on a flush. You get a five of diamonds, you're sitting--

MARISHA: If I get a five of diamonds.

TRAVIS: -- fucking pretty.

ANJALI: Or any diamond.

MARISHA: But any diamond, I get a flush.

MATT: It will be dawn, suddenly.

MARISHA: And anything--

TRAVIS: Five, a diamond, or five of diamonds.

MARISHA: Straight flush, right. All right, all right, all right, all right. Gimme, gimme, I'm going to switch out the jack. (tense plucked string music) Pew pew! Come on, man, come on.

BRIAN: I want you to draw from the deck.

MARISHA: (exhales tensely)

KHARY: Oof, oof, oof.

ANJALI: Come on, baby, come on.

MARISHA: Why are you making me choose my fucking fate?

BRIAN: Because you already chose your fate.

MARISHA: Look at these sexy cards, all right. I don't want to die. (cheering)

TRAVIS: Oh, it's the Joker! (cheering) (screaming) Do that shit! Do that shit!

MATT: What the fuck?!

MARISHA: I would like to make that a five of diamonds!

TRAVIS: Yes!

KHARY: Yes!

TRAVIS: Straight fucking flush!

MARISHA: Straight flush! Poker's fun, you guys, I can see why people get addicted to this shit!

MATT: Totally great. (laughter)

BRIAN: So you were channeling the energy from the other day when you were able to do this. Are you focusing on that creature right there?

MARISHA: I want to focus on, because it's a giant blast apparently.

MATT: Yeah, it's a blast.

MARISHA: So I want to like, focusing on this creature, but I want to make it over top of this pit and just...

MATT: With a straight fucking flush.

BRIAN: Okay, you harness the energy. You start to feel that same sort of arcane energy flowing through you as you close your eyes and you focus. As you're focusing super hard and focusing on these two creatures in this area and trying to cast this Light, it halts for a second and right before you're about to cast it, you see the image of your sister's face. But not like she was when she was undead, like the day you last saw her.

MARISHA: (whimpering)

BRIAN: It fills you with rage and power. You cast Light, it shoots out across the field. Both of the snakes close their eyes and start flailing around. They are now blind.

ANJALI: (gasps)

MARISHA: Okay.

KHARY: Oh, nice.

MARISHA: And there's a bunch of light for 10 minutes?

BRIAN: Will have other disadvantages because of that spell.

MARISHA: Okay.

TRAVIS: Yes!

BRIAN: So would you like to move?

MARISHA: I will just stumble backwards. I already moved backwards, but a little bit more bink bink, lean up against this rock.

BRIAN: Okay, so you're back here and because of that flush...

MARISHA: (gasps)

ANJALI: Yes!

BRIAN: You get to draw a fate chip.

KHARY: Hey!

MARISHA: Hallelu!

TRAVIS: Yeah.

KHARY: Green green green green!

ANJALI: Come on baby, get your green, get your green! (drumming on table) (groans of disappointment)

BRIAN: That's okay, that's okay, that's okay.

ANJALI: It's still a Benny, and it is a no consequences Benny, which I appreciate.

TRAVIS: Fate will do something.

BRIAN: These creatures, one of them shaken and blinded, the other one blinded but not shaken, is going to... The shaken one is going to come around the rock here and try and get close enough to Miriam, because he's pretty pissed at her.

ANJALI: He can't see.

BRIAN: He's going to try and first unshake himself. (sighs)

TRAVIS: He can smell your perfume.

BRIAN: Six?

ANJALI: Ew.

BRIAN: Fucking hell. That's how powerful my rolls have been. He does not succeed, he is still shaken. With a fucking two. I won't tell you the company I got these dice from, but I'm throwing them away after this game. (laughter) Yeah, so this one, because he does not remove his shaken status, he's going to stay where he is and he's not going to attack you. He's going to just sit there and still be frightened. So we're going to move him back, I'll move him back. So it is now going to be Clayton "The Coffin" Sharpe's turn.

MARISHA: "The Coffin?"

ANJALI: Mm-hmm.

MATT: Yeah, what...? I'm to go ahead and, now that I'm back to back with Fogg there, look over my shoulder. We both glance over at this blast of light that's summoned by Miss Arabella over there. Fuck, just stick to what works. I'm going to spin around between him and Miriam and go ahead and fire at the one that's slowly slithering in her direction, go ahead and keep him at bay, as the other one seems to be currently assaulted by this strange arcane light and just take two shots at it between the two of them.

BRIAN: You want to fire between Fogg and Miriam, or do you want to move around them and then fire?

MATT: Well, if it's going after Miriam, I'm actually going to move around and try and get in front of Miriam.

ANJALI: He's incapacitated anyway.

BRIAN: Okay, so now, you're still a human shield for her, it's awesome!

ANJALI: You sweetie, you sweet, sweet thing.

BRIAN: Go ahead and roll for your shots, please, sir.

MATT: It'll be done. (sharp inhales)

BRIAN: With your minuses and everything.

MATT: Yep, minus two.

MARISHA: ♪ Shot, shot, shot, shot shots ♪

MATT: Ha ha! Eight explodes. That's a 10 minus two, eight. So still hits with a raise.

BRIAN: That does hit, go ahead and roll your second shot.

MATT: Got it, this one is at a minus four. Six explodes.

BRIAN: Okay.

MATT: That's an 11 minus four. That still bring us to a seven.

BRIAN: Both hit.

MARISHA: Yes!

KHARY: All right!

BRIAN: Go ahead and roll damage.

MATT: First one get the raise damage die?

BRIAN: It does.

MATT: All right.

BRIAN: The first shot, yeah.

MATT: Yeah. Ooh, double sixes again!

MARISHA: Yes!

BRIAN: Can I borrow your dice?

MATT: I know, apparently!

BRIAN: Can I borrow your dice?

MARISHA: Come on, Coffin!

BRIAN: Do you know what this is? This is because I touched Laura's dice at Gen Con.

MARISHA: At Gen Con?

BRIAN: This my fucking curse.

MATT: 26, six explodes.

BRIAN: Okay, okay.

MATT: Two, so 28 points of damage on that first shot.

ANJALI: First shot, one shot!

KHARY: First shot!

BRIAN: How many? 26 on the first shot, how many on the second?

MATT: I haven't rolled it yet.

BRIAN: Oh, roll the second then, please.

MATT: Both sixes.

TRAVIS: Come on! (screaming laughter)

MATT: This is dumb!

ANJALI: Yes! (laughter)

MATT: 12 plus six, that's 18 points of damage on the second.

BRIAN: What was the first one?

MATT: 26.

BRIAN: That's 40 what?

TRAVIS: 44.

BRIAN: 44, okay give me one moment, please. I'm going to say something to you that I've wanted to say for an extremely long time. How the fuck do you want to this? (cheering)

MATT: So (laughter), whirling around in front of Miriam, out of the corner of the eye give a wink, like: Don't worry, I got you. Looking across at the creature itself slithering up, its mouth open, I go ahead and just put both barrels down squint as I aim and then right as it leaps towards me, (gun firing) fire them both at once. Right down its gullet.

BRIAN: Okay, you fire at once, right down its gullet. The impact of the bullets literally split the creature in two and one half of it flops to the side, no movement. The other half of it flops to the side, no movement. Upon seeing this, the last remaining creature backs up behind those rocks and he looks out at all of you, and he says, "Weak servants."

MATT: I spin my guns at him, Really? (laughter)

BRIAN: He scurries away.

ANJALI: But he's blind!

BRIAN: Slithers away into the woods

ANJALI: Can he run into things?

TRAVIS: (thudding into things) (laughter)

BRIAN: He's running away, he's running the opposite direction of where he knows all of you are.

TRAVIS: You see him hobbling--

ANJALI: How fast is he going, can we still kill him? Can we still get him?

KHARY: Yeah, yeah, where--

ANJALI: How fast is he going?

BRIAN: He slithered away incredibly fast, terrified.

MATT: These guys are pretty quick, yeah.

BRIAN: Terrified, you would have to get on a horseback to chase him down.

ANJALI: Eh, it's not worth it. They're tied up and it takes time.

BRIAN: So. Anything you guys would like to do around the side of the pit?

ANJALI: Is there anything we can do to help them with their wounds?

TRAVIS: Yeah.

ANJALI: Does anyone have a good healing?

MARISHA: I can attempt some healing, yeah.

BRIAN: For the time being, you don't need to.

MARISHA: Okay.

BRIAN: Would you guys like to do anything else around this area? What would you like to do?

MATT: I'd like to rest for a minute, if that's okay.

BRIAN: Do you want to go sit down by one of the nearby trees?

MATT: Yeah, as I start hobbling that way looking down in the pit and see how much of it has fallen and collapsed.

BRIAN: It's pretty full of just dirt. You don't see any of the remains or any of the Irishmen--

MATT: Well, no, they're all scattered about the outside of it now.

BRIAN: They're scattered around the outside of it, but the inside, it's just a pit full of sand now.

MATT: Fair enough.

BRIAN: That dynamite just collapsed it.

MATT: Go over to one of the trees and just sit down and pull out my canteen.

BRIAN: Okay.

TRAVIS: There you go.

BRIAN: Anything else you guys would like to do at this area?

ANJALI: I go over to Clayton and try to see if there's anything I can do, if I can give him food, if I can give him water, anything to try to help his fatigue.

TRAVIS: (high-pitched) "Oh, Mr. Clayton!"

ANJALI: That's not how I talk, nice try. Do you want some more ASMR?

TRAVIS: (snores)

ANJALI: Go to sleep!

BRIAN: So those of you with points of fatigue, go ahead and remove those.

MARISHA: All right.

BRIAN: Those of you with wounds, the wounds stay.

MARISHA: Okay.

ANJALI: Can we attempt to heal them?

MARISHA: I can try and do a little bit of treating real quick, yeah.

BRIAN: Do you have medical supplies with you?

MARISHA: I've got my good sensibility. (laughter)

TRAVIS: We could try to arcanely heal ourselves.

MARISHA: I could try to arcanely heal ourselves.

BRIAN: Do you see something in there that could do that?

MARISHA: There's a healing somewhere in here.

KHARY: There's a healing in there.

TRAVIS: But it's a three.

MARISHA: It's a three?

ANJALI: Oh no.

MARISHA: "Healing removes wounds less than an hour old."

TRAVIS: I'm not scared.

BRIAN: Definitely less than an hour old.

MATT: I ain't either.

TRAVIS: I'll try to heal myself. Now that the danger has passed.

MARISHA: All right. You need three points.

TRAVIS: I'll try to heal myself.

BRIAN: You want to see The Dealer?

TRAVIS: Yeah. (cards shuffling)

KHARY: What the hell just happened here, people?

MARISHA: I don't know.

KHARY: That was a three-headed snake jumped out of the mouth of a man. Okay, yeah, let's just, we'll talk about that later.

MATT: It was a little weird.

KHARY: It was a little weird!

MATT: That was a little weird. Still trying to process all this.

MARISHA: If we got our powers from this being, are we able to give them back?

MATT: I don't know if we got them from this being, though, we got it from this Dealer fellow.

BRIAN: 10 of clubs.

TRAVIS: Nine of...

ANJALI: Spades.

TRAVIS: Or eight of spades. 10, pair. (snaps)

MARISHA: (shouts in support)

ANJALI: 10, got a pair.

KHARY: All you need is--

MARISHA: Come on, come on.

TRAVIS: Nine.

ANJALI: That's two pair!

TRAVIS: No no no, that's eight and a nine.

BRIAN: That's an eight and a nine.

TRAVIS: Three of a kind! (cheering) (clapping)

MARISHA: Look at that!

BRIAN: You are healed, my friend. (cheering) You can remove your point of wound.

MARISHA: It's a miracle!

TRAVIS: (sighs of relief)

BRIAN: It's now--

TRAVIS: Thank you, Lord!

BRIAN: --pretty close to the middle of the night.

MARISHA: (deep exhales) Okay.

BRIAN: What would you guys like to do? Do you want to head back to town, do you want to...

KHARY: Maybe-- do we have time to head back-- how long does it take to get back to town? Maybe I can get some supplies for healing.

BRIAN: Going to take you a few hours' ride to get back to town.

ANJALI: You got to heal that before it turns into an injury.

KHARY: Good lord.

MARISHA: I can make an attempt. I guess.

ANJALI: Or it turns into an injury and we..

KHARY: Three-- well.

ANJALI: Treat it back home.

KHARY: Two...

TRAVIS: Or you can see a man about an injury. (hums religiously)

KHARY: Three of a kind in a row? This is, I think we're starting to push our--

TRAVIS: It's is a hot table, it's a hot table, Aloysius! Come on, baby, let's go!

MARISHA: (laughter) It's a hot table.

KHARY: Oh hell, you only live once. (whooping)

MARISHA: Oh shit!

BRIAN: Would you like to see the Dealer?

KHARY: Let's play the feud.

TRAVIS: Yes!

ANJALI: (whimpers)

KHARY: Why not? (cards shuffling)

BRIAN: Cards back, clear those for me, if you don't mind.

TRAVIS: Mr. Fogg!

ANJALI: Mr. Fogg.

TRAVIS: (cackles)

BRIAN: Aloysius Fogg.

KHARY: You know what, I'm either-- if I don't, I'm going to end up with an injury anyway, so might as well do something about it.

BRIAN: Two.

TRAVIS: That's a rough start.

KHARY: No no.

ANJALI: Not necessarily.

BRIAN: Three of diamonds. Queen of diamonds. Eight.

MARISHA: Ew.

BRIAN: Eight.

MARISHA: Okay okay okay!

BRIAN: You wanted the two points for the healing?

MARISHA: It's three for healing.

BRIAN: Oh, it's three for healing. So, you have your grit point if you want to redraw one of those cards.

MARISHA: Healing card's over there, I think.

KHARY: All right, let's...

MATT: He has the healing card.

KHARY: Let's take away the two.

BRIAN: You want to take away the two?

KHARY: Let's take away the two.

MARISHA: Oh come on, come on, Aloysius. (tense, dramatic string music) (cards shuffling) (groans of disappointment)

BRIAN: All right, you still have a wound, but that's okay.

KHARY: And I also have a consequence, I do believe.

BRIAN: You do.

MATT: Worthy endeavor, worth a try.

KHARY: Ah, damn. Can't win if you don't play.

TRAVIS: That's right.

BRIAN: Fogg, because you're... because your hand was not sufficient...

TRAVIS: My favorite part.

MARISHA: I know.

BRIAN: Make a smarts roll for me.

KHARY: Smarts roll.

ANJALI: Okay.

KHARY: All right. I got a four.

BRIAN: Okay. Okay. So for the next six days, you will start to feel your mind-- changes happening in your mind. You'll start to forget things that you once knew and memories that were once extremely clear become foggy. No pun intended. The faces of loved ones you can remember, but memories and a lot of the emotional attachments to them no longer connect to your brain for the next six days.

TRAVIS: Please tell me he remembers the three women! (laughter)

ANJALI: They count as loved ones.

BRIAN: You remember their faces. You remember their faces.

TRAVIS: Oh, brother.

ANJALI: That's okay. He just has to repeat.

MARISHA: For six days.

ANJALI: Let's get...

MARISHA: Wow, you have no emotional empathy for six days.

KHARY: No, apparently not.

MARISHA: Fuck!

ANJALI: We should get him back as fast as we can to at least try to get to inside the Doc's office and treat whatever we can.

TRAVIS: Let's make our way back to the horses, then.

BRIAN: Back to the horses, back to camp? (hums of agreement) Okay, you guys get on the horses. You guys have made your way back to town. As you crest the hill, it's now the middle of the night. As you crest the hill, down past the graveyard and get close enough to where you can see town, you can see once again all the lanterns in the center of town are lit. The whole thoroughfare is illuminated. As you ride in, in front of the Reverend's church, you see four women positioned in four different places of the town. Miriam, you recognize these women.

ANJALI: Uh-huh...

BRIAN: From the Bella Union Saloon.

TRAVIS: Yes! Yaas, queen.

BRIAN: As you crest the corner, leaning up against Doc Cochran's offices, Joanie, wearing a robe, she looks better than she did the last few times you saw her. She says, "You've been gone a little while. "Had to keep the town safe, so "I brought out the whore-ssassins."

MARISHA: (stifled giggling)

BRIAN: "We'll be keeping watch." Do you want to say anything to her?

ANJALI: Well played!

MARISHA: (laughs)

BRIAN: Celine gives you a wink and as you guys walk toward the front of the church, you see Al Swearengen standing on the balcony of the Gem Saloon holding his coffee cup. He looks down and he says, "Welcome back! "Some of you a bit worse for wear than others. "I suppose you'd like to tell me what happened "and collect your payment."

MATT: Yeah, I think that sounds right, right about what we want, yeah.

BRIAN: He says, "Dan, bring them the fuck up!" Door to the Gem bursts open and Dan comes out.

MARISHA: As we're walking up-- Reverend? That's some mighty fancy work you did on that horse back there.

TRAVIS: Ah. Thank you. Just felt right?

MARISHA: Mm-hm.

KHARY: Just a natural on a horse these days, huh?

TRAVIS: No. I am quite the experienced horseman, actually. I served for a bit in the Ohio Cavalry division over in Fort Collins, Colorado before I made my way up here. There was an onslaught that attacked our fort. Some terrible sounds in the night and bunch of my fellow soldiers came back bleeding, dying, everything in between. And I... ran. Grabbed a horse and... rode into the dark of the night as fast as I could. I felt ashamed about that. Tremendous amount of grief. I tried to start over. Found a... preacher in Rapid City, South Dakota. Talked about rebirth, starting anew. Glad it came in handy.

KHARY: (grunts in acknowledgement)

ANJALI: Cavalry or no, you still needed someone to look after you.

TRAVIS: I did, and I thank you for that.

ANJALI: (hums in assent)

MARISHA: Make a pretty good team.

MATT: Not bad.

MARISHA: What about you, Mr. Sharpe? Are you going to be on your way?

MATT: I got a meeting with Al Swearengen, I believe, with the rest of you folk. We'll take it step after that. Come on.

MARISHA: All right.

BRIAN: Clayton. Earlier, you had a roll of eight upon grabbing those posters from Farnum's office.

MATT: Mm-hmm.

BRIAN: The Bartender will now tell you what you saw.

MARISHA: Ooh, you're going to go see the Bartender!

TRAVIS: Holy shit! ♪ Bartender ♪

MARISHA: Bartender wants to see you.

TRAVIS: Wants to see you at the Bartender, ooh!

MARISHA: Ooh!

IVAN: Hello, Mr. Clayton.

MATT: Hey, Barkeep.

IVAN: So before I tell you something, would you like a drink?

MATT: I would, actually.

IVAN: Whiskey or beer?

MATT: Whiskey for me, please, it's been a whiskey kind of day.

IVAN: All right. Sir, (quietly) in those flyers you found, you saw a wanted poster for a certain Clayton "The Coffin" Sharpe, as well as a man who looks suspiciously like the Reverend, for both murder and desertion. Two flyers. Two members of your party, all laid up with wanted symbols on them. Enjoy your drink!

MATT: Thank you kindly. (glass slams down) (taps on bar)

BRIAN: So... As you make your way into the Gem Saloon, Dan Dority, smiling at you, he's holding a shotgun. Everybody that's in town still is on guard. Everyone's, you know, pretty shook up from what happened. But Dan's got this smile on his face. As he's looking at you, he says, "Go on upstairs." As you pass the bar, you see about 20 bottles of whiskey and five shot glasses on the bar. Do you want to do anything before you get upstairs, anyone?

TRAVIS: I'll take a shot of whiskey, that'd be fine.

KHARY: If the Reverend's going to take one, I think we all might.

BRIAN: Okay, so Dan pours you five shots of whiskey. Al comes out and he says, "There's more up here waiting for you."

MATT: Hold mine, I got to go take a piss real fast.

BRIAN: Okay, you're going to go take a piss?

MATT: I'm going to go outside and find a little corner on the side of the Gem and take the papers out, push them into the ground a bit, light a match and just ignite the whole batch.

BRIAN: Ignite the whole batch of the posters that you found in--

MATT: Yeah.

BRIAN: --EB Farnum's office?

MATT: Yeah.

BRIAN: Okay, that was about 20-25 pieces of paper, so yeah, you could easily burn all that up. Then you want to go back inside?

MATT: Mm-hmm. Come back and... Appreciate your patience. (sighs deeply) To another day of living.

TRAVIS: L-I-V-I-N.

BRIAN: As you get up to Al's office, he's sitting behind his desk. He looks at all of you. "Well? "Who was it?"

TRAVIS: Just as we thought. That slithery fuck Doc Cochran.

BRIAN: "The fucking, grave-digging Doc. "I had my suspicions, but... "I would have thought Tolliver, but he's "too much of a recluse these days. "Well..."

KHARY: To say it was just Doc Cochran is a bit of an understatement.

BRIAN: "Tell me what you mean."

KHARY: Have you had a drink yet?

BRIAN: "Oh, I always drink."

KHARY: Well, you're going to need another one, 'cause you're not going to believe this shit. (laughter)

BRIAN: He pulls the bottle of whiskey out from his desk and pops the cork out of it and slides the shot glass next to the side and takes a sip from the bottle.

KHARY: Three snake heads, two arms, one tail. Burned to death by nitro.

ANJALI: And emerged from the body of Doc Cochran.

KHARY: From the mouth of Doc Cochran.

TRAVIS: Oh yeah.

ANJALI: More accurately.

MATT: To a height of at least 15, 20 feet.

ANJALI: At least.

MATT: We're talking Biblical, Grecian god-type... terrible whatever the fuck it was.

BRIAN: "Oh, I'm familiar with the human equivalent."

MARISHA: Had some sort of amulet around his neck. I don't know if that had any affiliation.

KHARY: Burst into flames, writhed and turned into ash and then rose from the ashes as what, seven or eight different--

TRAVIS: Maybe 12, 14?

KHARY: Serpent creatures that we had to fight off. I'm telling you right now, if I didn't think-- I would have thought I was crazy if I didn't have four other people having to fight them off with me.

BRIAN: "Where was this?"

MATT: The original claim.

BRIAN: "The original claim that I sent you to?!"

MATT: Yeah.

ANJALI: Yes.

BRIAN: "Well, it appears George Hearst's men "pissed off someone else besides me "for digging in the ground."

MATT: Let me tell you, sir, here's the interesting part. Doc Cochran, self-professed, a servant of something.

BRIAN: "He said that?"

MATT: Him and many of the creatures, they seemed to apparate from within and around, but... while we managed to deal with that one issue, whatever it was that Cochran was the servant of is still out there and from what we can gather, seems to be a bit prickly about the greed this town draws. Which means, as long as this town's around, so is whatever this thing is that Cochran was working for.

BRIAN: "These creatures "you talked about, "did they turn my sign into a "brilliant fucking light yesterday?"

TRAVIS: (clears throat) Yes, they did. All sorts of unexplainable shit was happening while they were roaming about.

BRIAN: "The Reverend fancies himself a liar! "Sheriff Bullock told me what you're capable of."

TRAVIS: Well, shit. (laughter)

BRIAN: "I hope he told you, "unless extremely necessary, "keep that shit to yourself."

MARISHA: He did, so it's a little disconcerting that he immediately came and told you.

TRAVIS: (laughs)

MARISHA: But to each their own, I guess.

MATT: To be fair, it was only a matter of time until Mr. Swearengen found out. That's kind of his business, is finding out everything in this town.

BRIAN: "A building can't be held up by only one pillar. "This town has two." He looks at you and he says, "All my life, people tossed me around, "used me to fill their fucking pockets. "Wasn't until I started thieving and cutting throats "came here and made this fucking place what it is "that I found my true purpose. "I been a thief, a whoremonger, and a throat-cutter "ever fucking since. "You folks found yourself in a situation "against forces greater than anyone has ever seen. "An evil greater than surely this town has seen. "Surely greater than the evil that "sits across the table from you now," and he smiles at you. "You understand me not getting involved. "I had to see to my own interests "and contemplate how to best protect the camp. "If the king dies, the kingdom falls. "I chose you because this town "had yet to piss in your ear and poison you. "And, observing your behaviors "and hearing of your reputation, Mr. Fogg, "I knew if we stood a chance, "you'd find a fucking way. "You're free to go. "Dan has bottomless drinks and your payment downstairs "should you choose to decompress in an environment "less hostile than where you found yourselves hours previous. "I included a little extra for your troubles "or for your travels "should the weird goings-on in our town "be too much for your delicate sensibilities. "This place can make you rich. "It can make you a fucking legend. "But do not allow yourselves for a moment to be mistaken. "Greed ain't cheap. "Oh, and welcome to fucking UnDeadwood." (laughter) Johnny opens the door for all of you to walk out downstairs and Al looks at you, Fogg, and says, "Oh, Mr. Fogg, stay back a minute if you don't mind." You guys want to go downstairs and get your payment, deal with Dan? (murmurs of assent)

ANJALI: I look at Mr. Fogg, look at Aly and I say...

KHARY: I'll be along.

MARISHA: See you downstairs?

KHARY: Absolutely.

BRIAN: You guys go downstairs?

MARISHA: Mm-hmm.

MATT: I'll stay to the back with them and actually sit by the door and try and listen in.

BRIAN: Okay. You want to sit down in front of Al?

KHARY: Yeah.

BRIAN: He grabs two shot glasses from the side, takes the bottle, pours two shots, slides them both towards you and says, "You're going to want to drink those."

KHARY: Tell me what you have to say first.

BRIAN: Reaches in a drawer of his desk, ruffles through some papers until he gets to the bottom. Takes out a folded piece of paper and says, "This came across my desk from a friend in another territory. "Told me if I ever came across the infamous Aloysius Fogg, "he might be interested in this. "Forgive me withholding it "until you'd seen to my interests. "If we all died in the past few days' events, "the matter would have been resolved by itself. "All I ask is that should you discover "yourself in need of resolution of this matter, "that you conduct your business outside my fucking joint. "But in the aftermath, you're welcome to drink "and fuck here as much as you'd like." The Bartender has the note that Al slid across the desk to you, if you'd like to go get it.

KHARY: (clears throat)

KHARY: Barkeep?

IVAN: Aloysius. I hope all's well. (paper sliding on wood)

KHARY: (clears throat) (paper rustling) (paper rustling)

KHARY: (clears throat)

BRIAN: Mr. Fogg. After examining the paper that Swearengen gave you, you have two shots in front of you. What would you like to do?

KHARY: I push them back towards him.

BRIAN: He takes both of them, he looks you in the eye. He winks, he shoots one. He winks, he shoots again. He puts his glasses on, continues to his work.

KHARY: (clears throat) I head downstairs--

BRIAN: Okay.

KHARY: --to the...

KHARY: To the bar.

BRIAN: When you get down to the bar, you see that laid out on the table for each of you is a thousand dollars in gold. Al honored his promise and then some. For taking care of this. What would you like to do?

ANJALI: As we see Aly come down the stairs, I'm looking at him to try to get to some sense of is he... Is he disturbed, is he all right, anything that I can sense in him without even asking.

BRIAN: Go ahead and make a notice check for me.

ANJALI: Mmm-mm, failed.

BRIAN: Okay.

MARISHA: Well. (clears throat)

KHARY: Ladies and gentlemen, it's been a pleasure. I unholster my revolver and aim it at... at Clayton's head.

MARISHA: Uh...

ANJALI: Aly, no.

TRAVIS: Excuse me?

BRIAN: Dan interrupts and says, "Thought Al told you to take your business outside."

KHARY: Well, that's exactly what we're about to do. Amos Kinsley, let's take it outside. (tense, quiet music)

MATT: If you'd be as so kind, you'd allow me the pleasure of at least another drink. Take the bottle and fill a double. May I?

KHARY: Slowly.

MATT: (grunts softly)

MATT: Where you coming from?

KHARY: Doesn't matter where we're coming from, matters where we're going. After you.

TRAVIS: Gentlemen, surely, there must be a more peaceful resolution to whatever this is.

KHARY: Reverend, I appreciate everything you've done for me and everything you've had to say. But I'm afraid this got nothing to do with you.

ANJALI: Aloysius, please, after all we've been through together, there's got to be something.

MATT: You do this to uphold the law, right? That's, I assume, what you're coming after? Or you here for money?

KHARY: Money's not what I need right now.

MATT: What do you need?

KHARY: You know if it wasn't for maybe... two, three hours ago, things might have been different. But my emotions seem to have left me and any feeling I might have had for you. All that's left is the law.

TRAVIS: (exhales deeply in understanding) (mouths) Fuck.

MATT: What if I told you the law's been wrong all this time? What if I told you the law ain't a perfect thing, especially this side of the country? What if I told you many innocent men themselves end up still having to do for the deeds of those who are cunning enough to be absolved of the noose? (tense quiet music)

KHARY: Well, I hope for your sake you're right. And I'd ask the Reverend to pray for your soul. But beyond that, I got a job to do.

MATT: (exhales sharply) Well, Reverend. I suppose you're going to tell Mr. Fogg here that I hope his soul can carry the weight of another unearned victory. Stand up and start walking to the door.

ANJALI: Stop, stop, both of you, stop! There's been so much senseless killing. There've been so many people lost. Why on earth do two men have to turn against each other when you have fought forces way greater than the forces of men? Why on earth-- what kind of justice is this? Please! Each one of us has lost someone, each one of us has lost someone along the way. I had to kill my own husband as he was dying. She had to kill her sister who had died one more time. Please, please, Aly, please. (sniffles)

KHARY: Goodnight, Miss Miriam.

BRIAN: (exhales deeply)

MARISHA: (breathes out in shock)

MATT: I'm still standing in the doorway looking back at the rest of you. It's funny, I figured in all places, this would be the one... they wouldn't find me. Well... Even a lawless town it seems is not immune to the corruption of the law. (sighs) Mr. Fogg, I'm giving you one last chance to not make the mistake that many other men have. You're on the wrong side of this. I'm telling you.

KHARY: I understand what you're saying. This gives me no pleasure. But you gave me no choice.

MATT: No pleasure for me either.

KHARY: You seem a decent man. I hate to kill you. (shocked, stifled laughter)

BRIAN: Go ahead.

ANJALI: Can I make a Stealth check to sneak up behind Aloysius and hit him with a bottle of whiskey over the head? (sniffles)

BRIAN: No, you may not.

MATT: You seem a decent man. That I'd hate to be killed by.

BRIAN: Are we having a duel?

MATT: I think we're having a duel.

KHARY: It seems so.

TRAVIS: Ooh! (laughter)

MARISHA: Oh my god. (laughter)

ANJALI: Fuck this game! (sultry, twangy guitar music)

BRIAN: So. Mr. Aloysius Fogg and the man that you know as Clayton "The Coffin" Sharpe are facing off in the thoroughfare in the city of Deadwood. The way this face off is going to go, you each are going to get two pocket cards. Pass that to Fogg, if you will. I'm going to deal a flop. I'm going to deal a turn. I'm going to deal a river. If when those cards are laid out, you find a match, you find a set, in whatever order they go, whoever feels like they have the strong enough hand, says "Shoot." Whoever yells "shoot" first, shoots first. I'll tell you more after we deal. It's time to see the cards you're dealt. Five... of spades. A joker. A three of hearts. A king of clubs. A jack of clubs. So. Since both of you are going for accuracy instead of speed, I want you both to roll shooting at the same time and tell me your results.

KHARY: Miss.

MATT: Five.

KHARY: Got a one and a three.

BRIAN: Clayton. Show me your cards.

MATT: Ace high. With the joker...

KHARY: No no, you got a pair of aces.

BRIAN: You've got a pair of aces if you want. I now want you to roll damage for your weapon and I want you to add an additional d6.

MATT: Okay.

ANJALI: Ooh.

MATT: 10.

BRIAN: You go to fire and you miss, shoots right past him. Clayton fires you, hits you in the chest just to the left of your heart. Fogg, you now have two wounds. Do either of you wish to fire again?

KHARY: I do.

BRIAN: Roll for me, please.

TRAVIS: (deep breathing)

MATT: I'm going to aim for his shooting hand, if I can.

BRIAN: Okay.

KHARY: Five.

BRIAN: That hits. Let me see your cards, please.

MATT: Four.

KHARY: I got nothing up here.

TRAVIS: Oh.

BRIAN: Okay.

KHARY: Well, no no, it's a pair of kings. Pair of kings.

MARISHA: (hums)

BRIAN: I want you to roll damage and I want you to add 1d6.

KHARY: (clears throat)

MATT: Called shot to the hand.

BRIAN: Called shot to the hand. The gun hand.

MATT: Yeah, misses.

KHARY: (grunts in acknowledgement)

TRAVIS: (exhales sharply)

KHARY: Two, four... 12.

MARISHA: (exhales sharply)

BRIAN: As the man you all know as Clayton Sharpe aims exactly for the shooting hand of Mr. Fogg and misses, Mr. Fogg quickly fires back at him, hitting you straight in the gut. You've taken two wounds.

MATT: (exhales with worry)

BRIAN: Do you wish to fire again?

KHARY: Yeah. (tense laughing)

BRIAN: I want you both to roll at the exact same time.

MARISHA: This is it, this is it! (leather hitting the table)

MATT: I'm aiming for the shooting hand again.

BRIAN: You're aiming for the shooting hand again, you're going to do the negative modifier.

MARISHA: Disarming.

TRAVIS: In nomine Patris, et Filii et Spiritus sancti.

KHARY: Six.

MATT: Miss. (groans)

BRIAN: Fogg. Clayton. As you aim for his shooting hand again, he quickly moves it out of the way, cocks the hammer back to fire again. Go ahead and roll damage for me, Fogg.

ANJALI: (groans)

MARISHA: That one explodes.

KHARY: Six explodes. One. And that's it. 11. (tense, twangy guitar)

BRIAN: Amos. As Mr. Fogg cocks back the hammer and lifts it towards you, you see in his eyes not hatred not revenge not malice or anger but justice, in his mind. And he shoots you straight to the heart. You fall to the ground. What are Amos Kinsley's last words?

MARISHA: (exhales in disbelief)

MATT: No words, just a... an ironic smile.

MARISHA: I just grip Miriam's hand so tight my fingernails start to dig into her palms.

TRAVIS: Cross myself.

ANJALI: And I just keep saying: No no no no no no no no no.

BRIAN: You guys have seen this, you see Clayton's body now lifeless in the street. Mr. Fogg, what do you do?

KHARY: I pull myself up. I walk toward the man that I feel nothing but respect for. I close his eyes. I slowly make my way to the second floor of... of the Gem Saloon. I put down my irons. I close my eyes and for the first time in I can't remember when, I sleep through the night.

BRIAN: The rest of you, what would you like to do?

ANJALI: I stagger over to his body and I just weep. I say, this isn't the law, this ain't right. I don't know what he did, but this ain't right. And I will never forgive that man for what he did. Anymore than I will forgive whatever the Lord is in the world or the God or the creature that took my husband from me.

MARISHA: Maybe it was no friends and not new friends, after all. I just stay by Miriam's side.

BRIAN: Okay.

TRAVIS: I'll, uh... Walk out into the street, put my hands on both of their shoulders, look down at Mr. Sharpe, or whoever he was. I'll say, Lord? We don't understand your ways, but we thank you for who Mr. Sharpe was to us today. He fought on your side, the side of the light. And we ask that you would forgive Mr. Fogg for his trespasses. May he find his way to your tranquility, peace and respite. Amen.

MARISHA: Amen.

BRIAN: In the stack of wanted and bounty posters.

KHARY: Mm-hmm.

BRIAN: Clayton Sharpe saw one of himself. And burned all the posters that he found in Mr. Farnum's office. You, sir, were sent looking for someone. You only had a brief description. Someone sent Mr. Swearengen a wanted poster for the murder of Patrick Harvey's brother. On that wanted poster was a picture of the man you all know as Clayton Sharpe. But his name was Amos Kinsley. And he was on the run for a crime he didn't commit 15 years ago. He was involved with the wrong crowd, he was accused of murdering innocent people, and he fled. Since then, he adopted many identities. Clayton "The Coffin" Sharpe being the most recent and the thickest of his aliases. In personality and in name. He's done a lot of bad things since he went on the run, but not the things that he was accused of and not the things he was wanted for. But justice is justice. You have a job to do. And you did it. And by all accounts and by all means and by every measure of the law in every territory that has one, you got your bounty. You can collect it in Jack County, should you choose to. We began this journey with a prayer. And we will end this journey with a prayer (laughs). That's where we will end this journey into UnDeadwood.

MARISHA: (breathes deeply)

MATT: (laughs)

TRAVIS: Oh s-s-shit. (laughter) (laughter)

MARISHA: No.

ANJALI: Good game, good game!

MATT: That was awesome.

KHARY: I'm sorr-- man.

MARISHA: Oh, Khary!

MATT: That was amazing!

KHARY: What a game. (laughter)

BRIAN: Thank you for joining me. Thank you for playing. Thank you all for watching. I want to quickly thank our crew and my wonderful cast, thank you for doing this, thank you for--

MATT: Yeah!

BRIAN: --doing this journey with me. (clapping) (cheering) I want to-- (clapping)

MARISHA: Some powerful shit!

MATT: Yeah, buddy! Yeah, so good!

MARISHA: Goddamn.

BRIAN: I want to shout out a few people. I want to shout out a few people very quickly. My creative partner in this endeavor, who I absolutely could not have done this without, and our wonderful Bartender, Mr. Ivan van Norman. ALL: Ivan! (clapping and cheering)

MARISHA: Barkeep!

BRIAN: I would like to thank our amazing friends at Dog Might for custom making this GM screen with the actual Black Hills of South Dakota.

MARISHA: Insane.

KHARY: Amazing.

BRIAN: I would like to thank Wyrmwood for giving us the wonderful dice trays for you all to roll in. I want to thank our wonderful friend, Ian Phillips at Iron Tusk Mini Painting. Find him online. After our wonderful PA Jerry put all these houses together, ALL: Jerry!

BRIAN: Ian painted them, painted most of our minis. I want to thank Jay at Emerald Knights for last minute painting my wonderful whore-ssassins. (laughter) Our local haunt there at Emerald Knights. Flip This Bitch for this absolutely incredible set and this coffin-shaped poker table that I will be putting in the back of my Mini Cooper and taking home with me after this. (laughter) I want to thank Pinnacle for making such an amazing world and game, Savage Worlds, Deadlands. I'm sorry I fucked it up really bad with some of the stuff but most of it was my dice!

TRAVIS: It's fun to play!

BRIAN: Thank you to everyone, thank you for watching, thank you for going on the journey with us these past few weeks.

KHARY: (grunts in agreement)

BRIAN: Maybe we'll see you again.

MATT: Mm-hmm.

BRIAN: Welcome to fucking UnDeadwood. (laughter) (clapping)

TRAVIS: Yeah, dude, yeah!

MARISHA: So fucking powerful! (solemn violin music)

KHARY: Like, I felt like it was drained out of me. It was like no matter what you yelled at me, it didn't matter.

MATT: Oh yeah.

KHARY: No matter what I thought of you, it didn't matter.

MATT: Narratively perfect. And I'm not going to lie--

MARISHA: You played that so fucking well.

MATT: There are few things more Deadwood than riding off the cusp of a successful venture into the harsh reality and ending on such a tragic note. That is fucking Deadwood!

KHARY: I mean, to me, that is that is a Western, that is a Western!

MARISHA: You can't write this shit!

KHARY: His hindrance is that he has bad dreams, he doesn't sleep. And when they took away all of the emotions--

MARISHA: Take away your emotions!

IVAN: He could sleep.

KHARY: He could sleep.

IVAN: Oh, it's the best, I saw that.

KHARY: It was like the worst night of his life and he...

MARISHA: And he slept!

KHARY: Sleeps.

MATT: That's so fucking poetic. I love it, I love it.

IVAN: It's perfect.

MARISHA: What's also fucked up is in six days--

IVAN: Five days, yeah, six days, what's going to happen to him in six days?

MARISHA: Yes, in six days... (ominous thrumming) (ominous music)
