* StayInTheKitchen: Kind of a weird example: When Rose is importuning Mayor Polk to anoint her Marshal, Mrs. Polk urges him to just do it and get it over with. Her reason? She has a roast in the oven. It's entirely possible this was meant as a clever contrast between Rose's progressive attitude and Mrs. Polk's more traditional mindset.

* GambitRoulette: Erica's real estate scheme amounts to gambling. She's buying up land in the hopes that a railroad being built through town will make her rich but there's no indication that she has insider knowledge (and if she does, it's obviously bad information) and there's no indication that she's trying to sway or fix the results. She's simply betting on a possible outcome.

Only after Jake punches tells Rose the truth does the plot return to the forefront... only to go right back to the back burner again as Rose notes Jake's testimony is not enough proof to act on. In the end, Rose doesn't actually settle with whoever hired her husband's killers[[note]]Erica[[/note]] because [[spoiler:Cane shoots Erica & discloses just as she's getting ready to Rose & others in the building that Erica's the one setting the events in motion, Rose concludes Erica dispatched the men who killed her husband, which Jake confirms.shoot Rose]].

They're on opposite sides of the law, working at cross purposes -- she upholding justice, he trying to fulfill a vendetta and also hired to assassinate her -- and neither will back down from who they are or what they want (well, he does try to delay killing her). Naturally it ends tragically when Rose is forced to shoot Cane dead.
