** Also, Doc Holliday's death was of a lingering illness that everyone had known he had for years (and had visibly impaired him for years), and yet he's standing right over there and ''perfectly healthy''. And Hickock's brains were blown out of his head in front of several dozen witnesses. A 'faked their death' scenario can be invoked for some of the people in that town, but for those two its not tenable.

** Remember, one of those dead people (Dolly Sloane) is somebody who was killed in the firefight he was in just the day before. Meeting her is how ''Sonny'' figures out where they are, after all.

* TearJerker: Lefty doesn't make it. * The girl condemned to Purgatory for cutting up her abusive father - a crime we moderns would consider justifiable - is probably there ''because'' she feels justified. Two wrongs don't make a right.

* FridgeLogic: How does Blackjack know the townsfolk are dead? He recognizes some as famous outlaws ''said'' to be dead, but surely the first conclusion would be that reports of their deaths had been exaggerated.

* FridgeBrilliance: Everyone in that town is dead. Why can living people reach it? Blackjack's gang is implied not to be the first party to pass through. It must be to provide more temptation - the townsfolk have to resist the urge to drink and gamble despite the perfectly good saloon in town, but no one there would be willing to start a fight. Outsiders, not restricted by the threat of Hell, can challenge that temptation.
