As the residents of Deadwood gather to commemorate Dakota's statehood in 1889, saloon owner Al Swearengen and Marshal Seth Bullock clash with Senator George Hearst.
After season 3 ended, David Milch made a handshake deal to make two Deadwood movies to conclude the series with then-HBO chairman and chief executive Chris Albrecht. Mr. Albrecht was arrested in Las Vegas for assaulting his girlfriend in a parking lot. After HBO fired Albrecht, the Deadwood movies were not made as planned. It has been speculated that if a contract had been signed to make the two Deadwood movies before Mr. Albrecht was fired, the conclusion of the series would've most likely been completed over a decade ago.
Does brevity exist in your repertoire, sir?
When Al and Bullock are discussing the issue with Hearst in the Gem around 42:50, the side on shot shows visible black masking on Als missing finger as he stands at the bar before sitting down.
