On the Gem's balcony above all the commotion, Al and Cy talk it over. Cy wonders how far into the process Merrick will stay involved. "Until them shysters take over," Al says with contempt, looking at the lawyers. Glancing across the way, he sees Mrs. G in her room at the hotel, all dressed in black and looking anxiously out her window. "I don't know what's become of the woman who was Mr. Hickok's friend," she tells Doc, who is there checking on the little squarehead girl. He says Jane is probably drunk over Bill's murder, and Mrs. G tsks that that's as well may be, but there is a child to be considered. Doc is just excited that the little girl is recovering very well, and ignores the implication that Mrs. G is not interested in looking after her. He does notice that Mrs. Garret is awfully nervy, and says that he doesn't see her "medicine" anywhere. She tells him she broke the bottle and he goes to pull out another one. "No," she says emphatically, and he comments that he doesn't see this as a good time to quit the laudanum. "Oh, what a pleasant surprise, Doctor," she bitches in a whisper, "to hear you admit the limits of your knowledge." I can't figure why Doc doesn't stab her with a scalpel or something, but he merely asks if she's made any travel plans. She tells him how Hickok had arranged with Bullock to serve as her proxy on the claim, and Doc says, relieved, that this will free her up to leave camp. Doc's a bit of a busybody, but he ain't wrong. She gives him and the kid a nauseated look.
