It’s increasingly starting to seem like Billy the Kid simply isn’t a good show, which is a shame considering its charismatic lead, real-life historical basis, and intermittently cool moments. But this week’s outing, “Fate”, was a bit of a mess, featuring a lot of questionable character decisions and wonky narrative logic. Ahead of Billy the Kid season 1, episode 7, titled “At the House”, we’re beginning to feel the end coming, especially now that Billy is inevitably going to be heading to Lincoln County and his eventual, untimely death. Here’s where things stand:
- Billy hooked up with Pat Garrett, the man who, if history is to be believed, will eventually kill him.
- Pat was riding with the Seven Rivers Gang, and took Billy to see Jesse, who seems to be pretty much over that whole Barbara thing.
- The gang set about stealing cattle from a man named John Chisum and selling them to the army, but Billy’s notoriety earns them the attention of the newspapers and an old associate of Jesse’s named Frank Baker.
- Baker proposes the gang heads to Lincoln County to work for a wealthy businessman named Lawrence Murphy, but before that, Billy has to make a brief detour to save his friend Segura, who is due to be hung in Chihuahua for the killing of Don Ortiz.

Where to watch Billy the Kid online
Billy the Kid is exclusive to Epix, which is available as an add-on for another popular platforms such as Amazon Prime and FuboTV.
Preview and predictions for “At the House”:
- With his business squared away, Billy will presumably head for Lincoln County and reunite with the Seven Rivers Gang.
- We’re obviously building towards the Lincoln County War, which involved several people we’ve already met, such as Chisum, Billy, Pat Garrett, and the Santa Fe Ring. I think you can expect to see Upson again here.
- Eventually, Pat becomes Lincoln County sheriff and hunts down Billy and two former members of the Regulators.
- Many famous gunfights and killings occurred during this time, so you can expect the final two episodes to be pretty action packed.
