One Last Stand
I’d like to say the season hangs in the balance, but I think that would be far too optimistic. Instead, the Twins are now playing for pride. Right now, we are the old, once-powerful gunslinger who is now struggling to get the job done. The dusty town may be overrun by the “bad guys” with no hope for the season at hand, but the gunslinger stands in the middle of the street anyway to defend the honor of himself, his people, and his future.
The question then remains: Will the gunslinger get gunned down in cold blood, or will he maintain that honor?
