1883 Episode 4 Precap: What Will Happen Next?
The fourth episode has been titled “The Crossing.” The group will have a horrendous job of crossing the river in 1883 Episode 4. While James has decided to the west with his family, Brennan is hell-bent on moving towards the east. However, Brennan might have to listen to James’ advice with danger approaching. They will have to cross the wagons and the supplies. Moreover, in the next episode, Thomas and Noemi would grow closer to each other.
A Quick Recap!
The previous episode began with the dreadful depiction of the Big Scary West. The trail across the west is full of death, waiting behind the tall grass to pounce on its victims. The survival journey gets tricky when James Dutton and Brennan have a difference in opinion. James wanted to head west and cross the river before the winter approached. However, Brennan wanted to keep walking towards the east to find a better crossing part. The trip to the east could extend three weeks in their journey, and James was not willing to bet his life on the fast-approaching winters. So, the duo decided to head their own way with their families.
Elsewhere, in 1883 Episode 3, a group of men stole food from a newly widowed Noemi. Her husband wed the man some money, so they took her food supply. Brennan came across the issue and saw that the woman had two sons and had a hard time handling things. So, he offered his help. He and Thomas beat the men down, took the supply, and disbanded their carts. They were thrown out of the traveling group for stealing. Noemi was impressed and wanted to be Brennan’s wife. But, he denied the offer claiming he wouldn’t be around upon reaching Oregon. That’s when Thomas told Brennan that they needed the group’s trust in order to lead them.
