EXT. RIVER CROSSING (VARIOUS SHOTS) – DAY
The wagon train splashes noisily across the river, drivers yelling loudly to urge on their teams. Emmett, Paden, Mal,
and Jake, on horseback, direct the crossing.
EXT. APPROACHING SILVERADO – DAY
The wagon train is moving through pretty, rolling country. Mal rides up to join Emmett and Paden on point ahead of the train. In his hand is a yellowed letter. He points off to the south where a dramatic half-dome of rock towers above
This is it, gents. My mama told me to head south thru that notch.
Good luck, Mal.
Maybe we’ll see you sometime.
(doesn’t think so)
Yeah… maybe. So long.
So long, Mal!
He rides away, and he doesn’t look back.
