The information at http://deadwoodstage.proboards34.com about a white-haired man being shot by Benny at a gas station was not wrong. There are several photos of the gas station scene being filmed up at my site to show that it was in fact filmed. What I had wrong about the scene at first (because I didn't know which of the last 2 episodes it was filmed for) was that I thought that it happened in "The Blue Comet," but it actually was filmed for "Made in America."
I never said for certain that it was Yaryna's father that was shot at the gas station - I said that it could have been him, because I couldn't tell from a far-away photo (the only one I had at the time) who it was laying on the ground. That speculation was based on the fact that there was likely to be a case of mistaken identity involving Phil/Yaryna's father in "The Blue Comet" (due to a casting notice for Yaryna's father that said he resembled Phil) and I thought that the gas station scene could be it. Well, there was a case of mistaken identity involving Phil/Yaryna's father in "The Blue Comet," but it wasn't the gas station scene. If you interpreted my speculation as fact, then you didn't read what I wrote carefully enough.
A few days before "The Blue Comet" aired, I received information that the gas station scene happened in "Made in America," not in the previous episode, and that it was definitely Frank Vincent (Phil) in the scene who was shot by Benny. As I mentioned above, there are several photos (some posted just today) at my site that show the gas station scene being filmed, and show that Frank Vincent and Benny are in the scene. The person who sent these pictures to me said that what happened in the scene (which you can't actually see in the still photographs) is that Benny shoots Phil. There are a couple of photos that show this being acted out, but it's difficult to see exactly what is happening in those photos)
Had I known earlier which episode the gas station scene actually was filmed for, I wouldn't have speculated incorrectly that it was Yaryna's father being shot there, rather than Phil himself.
Anyways, that's how the confusion about the gas station scene came about, but eventually got resolved. Here is one of the new photos (which I didn't have back when I speculated that it was Yaryna's father being shot at the gas station) taken during the gas station filming, clearly showing Frank Vincent and Geraldine LiBrandi, who plays his wife:
