In the saloon, Toole tries to rouse some rabble to go chasing after the Cheyenne. Cullen, sitting nearby, tips over a chair with his foot to block their path. Toole, feeling like a big man now that he has backup, tells Cullen to get out of their way. "We aim to go after those Injuns and there ain't nothing you can do about it." Cullen gets to his feet. "The hell there ain't," he says. He saunters over to Toole, looking all imposing and steely calm. Cullen might be kind of hot, you guys. Toole's not impressed, though. He points out that Cullen is outnumbered. It's not like he can kill all of them. Cullen says he can kill five of them. Toole sneers. "You hear that? He's not even fully loaded. Only five bullets he's got!" Cullen clarifies: "I got six bullets. I was just gonna shoot you twice." Ha! More of this Cullen, please, and less of the mopey one. Toole backs up, eyes wide, but clings to his bravado. That's when the Swede and some others join Cullen's side. "It's important to Mr. Durant that the Injuns remain unharmed," says the Swede. "I'm sure you boys can find some amusement here in town."
Toole and his gang decide to take out their frustrations on Eva, the tattooed lady. First they head over to the brothel, but she's not there. Then they head over to Elam's tent, where the two are canoodling in the dark. Toole and the others barge into the tent. Elam tries to hold them off, but they overrun him like a swarm of ants. "We didn't do nothing!" Eva protests. He jumps on Toole, pulling him off Elam. "Let him go! We was just talking." Toole throws her off and punches her. She falls to the ground. "Leave her alone!" Elam shouts. The men drag him out into the night and into the closing credits.
The last few scenes of the episode perked things up a bit. The rest of it felt like a stage play, and not a good one. It was slow and talky and... well, stagy. Someone needs to shove a lot more wood in this thing's furnace.
