(Powers' death was previously shown as a premonition in the episode Paradise Lost, but his actual death occurs in this episode.)
  • Deadwood: The Movie (2019) [Cy Tolliver] While Powers doesn't appear in the film, it's made clear that his character from the TV show passed away during the passage of time between the show and movie. (As it was made after his real-life death).
