Australia. What fresh Hell is this?


Arthur Burns is a monster. An abomination.

What happened at the Hopkins place was unforgivable. I have never seen such a sickening sight. Did you know that that poor woman, Eliza Hopkins, had a child in her belly?

You have nine days, Mr. Burns.

I've kept company with bad men all my life.

I will civilize this land.

I wish to present you with a proposition. I know where Arthur Burns is. It is is a godforsaken place. The blacks won't go there, nor the trackers. Not even my own men. I suppose, in time, the bounty hunters will get him. But I have other plans. I aim to bring him down. I aim to show that he is a man like any other. I aim to hurt him. And what will most hurt him? Well, I've thought long and hard about that. And I've realized, Mr. Burns, that I must become a little more inventive in my methods.

No more.

You touch my brother again, I'll kill you.

One more crack about the Irish, Mr. Lamb, and I'll shoot you. Am I clear?

You know, Samuel, the thing I relished the most while I was away? Was not having to see your ****ing face all the time.

I'm going to be with my brother

Why can't you ever just... stop me?

You got me, Charlie. What are you gonna do now?

Look at that. Be humble of heart, Charlie. This is the end of things. You're my brother. You belong with me. We are a family. All of us.
