The gunman, Cane Miro, hits it off with Rose soon after arriving in town, and begins trying to stretch the terms of his contract to avoid killing her. However, he has an old [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar Civil War]] grudge against the town's mayor, and Rose finds her hands full trying to keep the man alive and Cain out of trouble. Can Rose stop Erica's plan? Will Rose redeem Cane before it's too late?

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Cain puts a ''lot'' of importance on the Battle of Lookout Mountain in his vendetta against the mayor, claiming that losing that battle lost the whole war. The actual battle was a relatively minor engagement in 1863, ''two full years'' before the end of the war, and ''after'' the decisive Union victories at Vicksburg and Gettysburg. The engagement didn't even involve the entirety of the armies on both sides, and was fought solely between Hooker's Union XI corps, and three Confederate brigades under Stevenson. Of course, it could more because he lost his brothers there and blames Polk for it, but uses that idea as an excuse. * BoomHeadshot: How Rose kills Cane. Though...

'''Erica:''' No, Jake, you're too stupid.

'''Erica:''' No, Jake, you're too stupid.[[note]]To be fair, she's saying the ''suggestion'' is stupid, because Jake is well-known as her assistant and would make Erica the prime suspect.[[/note]]

* WhatAnIdiot: The Mayor. With Cain's increased desire and efforts to kill him, he does nothing to have Cain arrested or does nothing to arm himself for self-defense on an equal level, leading to both himself and his wife dying needlessly.
