The TV show is set in Absaroka County, Wyoming near an Indian Reservation (Cheyenne). Sheriff Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) is best friends with Henry Standing Bear (Lou Diamond Phillips). Walt is connected spiritually to the Cheyenne natives more than he thinks he is. Fans of the show got to see Native American performers appear & they inlcude, Zahn McClarnon, Gary Farmer, Ernest Tsosie III, David Midthunder & Raoul Trujillo. Plus, the many Native men & women who served as background extras.
The “Bad Medicine” episode preview trailer shows us several things. The final truth about the homicide of the person who killed Walt Longmire's wife. Did Walt take revenge on her killer? The writers have been giving us insights all TV season. Henry told Walt he cannot confess to something he did not do. Henry too was in Denver after both homicides & has been covering up for both Walt & himself. What really happened? Maybe we'll find out soon.
Also, the past of Vic Moretti (Katee Sackhoff) catches up to her with a visit from a man named Ed who knew her in 'Philly.' Vic asked Henry to hire someone to beat up Ed to threaten him off. Walt intervened & threatened Ed himself. Ed is seen in the preview beaten up as Vic confronts him in the hospital. Vic revealed to Walt part of her truth, but the question remains did she have an affair with Ed? The writers of the show have been vague all TV season. Did she or didn't she? Maybe we will never know. Or the fans miss something?
