Joanie comes into the Chez Amie to find Maddie nervously flipping through her magazine. Joanie says the rest of the girls are at "that new store" mooning over a dress. When...and WHY...is there a fancy dress store in Deadwood? Riddle me that. But, no, you don't have time. Because Maddie's panic in this scene is palpable. Joanie asks her what's wrong, and Maddie tells her Wolcott's in a room with Doris. Joanie wants to know why he's not with Carrie. "Carrie's napping," Maddie says. "I can't imagine what Carrie told Wolcott about Doris to make him want to fuck her..." Maddie is terrified. "Maybe that she reports to Cy Tolliver to keep Wolcott from bouncing Doris off more walls? Look up from your fuckin' magazine, Maddie!" Just then, Wolcott steps out of the room, asking to see Carrie. The three of them freeze. We all wonder about Doris.
In Cy's office, he's boozily laying out a plan of revenge for his henchmen to take against Merrick. He's pissed that Merrick fucked up their plans by not putting Jarry's claim announcement in the paper, rather nailing it the wall, making it appear suspect and causing a panic among the prospectors, thus messing up Cy's play with Wolcott. Yeah, I know. It's complicated. Leon and Con Stapelton don't get it, either. Cy wants them to go in and wreck Merrick's presses, but won't say it outright, and they have to pretty much have it laid out for them. It's a nice scene, but so damn wordy, and I only have ten fingers here.
Back at the Chez Amie, things are heating up. Joanie's in a panic. She wants to go in and see what's going on with Wolcott, Carrie, and Doris. "He ain't the type to be with two women," Joanie says. "I never took his full history," Maddie answers, trying to hold it together. "I'm sayin' he ain't," Joanie insists. Well, you know, technically, she's wrong. Wolcott is, indeed, in the room with both Carrie and Doris. The camera is close on Carrie's crying face, with Wolcott looking only slightly concerned in the background. "What are we to do here, Carrie?" he asks her. Dude, Doris is dead. Carrie is mortified with fear. She tells him to "get rid of her, they'll let you." Wolcott says he supposes she's right, but that's not really the problem. Man, Wolcott is so amazing in this scene. Such calmness. Evil is so much more scary when it's calm.
