1883 Episode 6 Ending Explained
Shea and James try formulating a plan for river crossing as the settlers prepare for another difficult journey ahead.
Meanwhile, we find a heavily drunk Margaret returning to the camp. Unable to withhold her pent up emotions, she finally reveals to James how much she longs for a stable life and how much she hates the challenges posed by their life on the road. She reminds James that he had promised her a life of affluence.
Later, when the settlers are preparing themselves to cross the river, James says that he will drive the wagon while Margaret crosses the river on a horse, saying that he cannot risk losing her. It is indicative of the fact that they are an inseparable couple and the quarrel between them was a minor issue.
By the end of 1883 Episode 6, we also find Elsa making peace with herself and trying to get over not only Ennis’ death but also the fact that she had killed a bandit in cold blood. She could do this with the help of Shea and James and, in the end, even introduces herself to Colton.
