John Marston is riding back into Blackwater, to get a loan from the bank to join the landowning classes. We’re going to see Mr Geddes cousin, Ansel Atherton and buy Beecher’s Hope, although he does try and dissuade us.
See, it’s all run down and there are squatters out there (of course there are) and we’ll have to head out there and see them off our newly acquired land before we can move in (of course we do). So head out there we do.
But do you think they want to just give up somewhere to stay? Of course they don’t. Well, we know what happens next… But you won’t get who we meet after that!
