So, they choose to hide from the hunters in 1871 Salvation. Alright, so far so good. No major problems (Well, there are, but I'll address them later). Now, rule number 1 when hiding out is you HIDE OUT. You don't go parading through town. Something Palmer, idiot that he seems to be, instead of genius he claims to be, doesn't seem to grasp. And everyone else in the group decides to go along for the ride, even though they KNOW their own track record when it comes to these things. Most surprising of all was Jackson going out into the town. The 1870's wasn't exactly the best time for African Americans back then (And surprisingly, not one of the people in town comment on Jackson's race, or Kendra's)
You are pretty much spot-on with everything, but I can at least think of a quasi-explanation for this
This town is a good hide-out spot for time-travelers. Was Jonas Hex's comment about not being the first time he/this town has been visited by time travellers just his perception, or has the town populace dealt with time-travelers on a number of occasions? Maybe this town is pretty used to weird
Heck, maybe many of the town long-time natives had them pegged as time-travelers from the get-go
In addition to two African-Americans, they had two women in pants!
Heck, maybe they have seen aliens
My big question is how did *all* of the crew (besides Rip) have such good horse-riding skills
Idiocy of the type they have shown I have come to expect, but all eight of these people, who have all lived in big urban centres, all magically know how to ride a horse and ride 'em well
