Unfortunately for Dolores and Will, they run into more Confederates, who, using troubling logic, claim that not giving them explosives is actually a declaration of war. William manages to shoot one of them before they seize him and he shouts for Dolores to run. But Dolores doesn't run anymore.
In one of the best scenes of any episode so far, our girl shoots all of the Confederates and then holsters her gun as if she's one of those badass gunslingers from that Sharon Stone western The Quick and the Dead. Willy is stunned. "How did you do that?"
"You said people come here to change the story of their lives," she says, chillingly, almost. "I imagined a story where I didn't have to be the damsel."
Even her voice is lower. She is officially a badass, and as a badass, also seems to know just what to do next, so she tells Will they have to catch a train, and they do. But upon entering the train car, they see El Lazo pointing guns at them, but Dolores knows all the tricks, so she points a gun at Slim's casket filled with nitroglycerin and El Lazo gives up and is like, "Damn, OK, well, now that we're all friends, you can call me Lawrence," further twisting the parallel narrative idea. And then Lawrence tells them to settle in for a long ride to the front.
