Recap of Episode 5 of 1883
Episode 5 of 1883 was yet another good episode of the Western series 1883. This episode showed the viewers the world through Elsa’s eyes and how her journey turned her from being an innocent girl to a woman full of grief. This journey transformed Elsa from a girl to a woman. Her journey becomes completely opposite after the attack held by the bandits. This attack shook the very foundation of the caravan.
It was known that the love story shared by Elsa and Ennis would not have a good ending. James and Margaret were well aware that they would not be able to protect their daughter from the world anymore. The episode shows Elsa’s transformation and how there is strength in number. The bandit attack ended surprisingly as it was not expected that there would be a victim.
Ennis being the victim shocked the viewers as he had true intentions of being with Elsa. He truly loved and wanted to be with Elsa. James’ moments of sadness are seen at the end of the episode, and the reason behind his sadness is that he realizes that it is not easy to find good men.
