Good points all I guess. Still, the homecoming inherant in "Scouring" would've been good to
"SEE" on screen.

As the great Thomas Wolfe once said, "You Can't Go Home Again". Things tend to change (morph -- to use a modern word) and be nothing like you remembered them when the young soldiers come home from war--older, wiser and bearing scars both mentally and physically. STILL, "Lonesome Dove" would've been ruined without Capt. Call taking Gus McRae back to Texas for burial.---Sure the basic tale still would've been told---but...

(I guess the Gray Havens weren't attempted by Jackson either, right?)
