“1883” Thoughts on episode 7, “Yellow Lightning Hair”

I fully expected this episode, being number 7 and all, to be a pretty tame filler episode. The start of this episode pointed towards this absolutely being the case. Boy, once it got going, this episode STAYED GOING! So I just want to post here weekly my thoughts following each episode of Paramount+ exclusive “1883”

First major thought of this episode is Elsa needs to slow her roll and maybe take a little chastity break. She is losing it, her emotions be all over the place. Throwing vibes to each and every hombre that comes across our intrepid travelers. She may want to slow down, Eeevvveeerrryyyybbboooodddyyyyy knows how quickly gossip can spread throughout a wagon train. Tale as ol’ as time right there.

That tornado absolutely truck sticked the wagons. So insane how wind can just shred through stuff that easily. I have been bitching about that break in the release of these episodes. I’m wondering if the devastation in Kentucky following those tornadoes led to Paramount delaying the release so this episode in which several lives are decimated by a twister was played so quickly following the terrible aftermath of the Kentucky Tornadoes.

If you didn’t notice that is the same actor from Yellowstone. Pretty awesome that they can show that his lineage came across the Dutton’s lineage even miles and miles away from where the events of “Yellowstone” take place in the present of this shows universe. His character really stepped up to the plate, even with Elsa being so emotional unhinged it seems this guy plays it cool. That’s really the extent of my thought. This native american cat was one cool SOB. Absolutely swoops in to save the girl from dirty ol’ bandits, save the day, and ride off to slay some more tail down the road I guess.

All in all, great episode here!

When Sam says “So I Killed him and took it”. Chills People. Chills.
