Skip the opening cinematic. Just as you ask Abigail if you’re forgiven, in comes Sadie Adler to both upset the apple cart again, and help finance the dream Abigail so wants. What a dilemma. In the end, Abigail gives you permission to go.
Mount your horse and follow Sadie to Tall Trees. She’ll stop at a destroyed camp. Use Eagle Eye to track the trail of the bounty target, and get back on your horse.
Sadie will follow you as you track the target. Pick up the pace, and go back into Eagle Eye to refresh your meter as you get low.
When you reach an Evil Deadish cabin, dismount and check out the mangled corpse out front.
Skip the cinematic where you find Marshall Thurwell and get knocked down by a bloody great bear.
- GOLD MEDAL: Shoot the bear 4 times as it charges
When you get control again, you will automatically go into Dead Eye. Be sure to shoot the bear four times. Even if you get a headshot, you probably won’t kill it, just make sure that you don’t miss.
Likely, you’re going to be knocked to the ground and do your best DiCaprio impresison, so quickly hammer / to try and break free from the grizzly’s pin.
If you manage to break free, you’ll get a chance to shoot it a few more times before Sadie joins in to drive the bastard off. Skip the cinematic.
Mount up and follow Sadie, checking to see how your Dead Eye meter / core is doing. Use a tonic if you have one to restore both.
Partway to Blackwater, you’ll see two riders riding towards you, then stop. Sadie comes to a stop, wondering who they are. Don’t even wait for her to respond, immediately go into Dead Eye and headshot them both.
- GOLD MEDAL: Headshot both the rival bounty hunters in Dead Eye
Crisis averted, escort Sadie to Blackwater to finish the mission.
This finishes A Really Big Bastard main mission in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now the next quest A New Future Imagined starts.
