Episode 3 of 1883 showed more promise and more heartache. the Yellowstone The fallout once again highlighted walking the Oregon Trail.
The show goes out of its way to ensure that this particular trip is not romanticized. People can die in no time. People can die just because someone said the wrong words. And it is in town where there is the security of a shelter.
On the track, things get even more dangerous. The show clearly shows that it was not a pleasant trip. People risk their lives to go further west.
1883 Show more death in the last episode
the Yellowstone The fallout brought tension to a boiling point during Episode 3, which bid farewell to several other characters while providing some tender moments.
Episode 3 opens with a wagon getting stuck in a rut, then one of the immigrants traveling in the wagon train heading west is accidentally killed after he doesn’t listen to Shea. Brennan on being more careful.
This is, of course, a big part of this show. This is to show that the people who took this trip probably shouldn’t have. They weren’t ready and they weren’t able. The show also makes sure viewers understand that Shea is one of the only people who knows how to handle things.
The next few minutes on 1883 are a montage of all the different ways some travelers end up dying along the way. During the first days of the arduous journey, there were many obstacles that they had to face and overcome every day, there is one obstacle that they cannot overcome.
The wagon train arrives at a river that the wagons cannot cross. This forces them to make the decision to look west or east to find a place to ford or ferry.
Anyone who’s ever played the Oregon Trail games knows that decisions like this are always fraught with pitfalls. Changing direction will cost them precious time as winter approaches.
Life and physical integrity are not the only things threatened in 1883 and its last episode.
Tensions begin to build between Brennan and James Dutton after Dutton questions Brennan’s leadership. Brennan ends up leaving no room for questions in the wagon when he and Thomas come to the rescue of a widow whose husband died along the trail.
Overall, Episode 3 reduces the levels of violence we saw in the first two episodes while increasing the tension. This does not mean 1883 minimizes the dangers of the trail.
People may not get shot in a hurry. But the Yellowstone the fallout always concerns the trials and difficulties of the path. And that’s why the show is always very good.
