That’s too bad. You’ll have to go by yourself.
INT. CAVE – MORNING
The distant ROAR OF GUNS echoes in the small space. Mal awakes with a start. Did he dream it? He looks around.
EXT. ROCKY HILLSIDE – MORNING
Mal, rifle in hand and frantic, is lost among the rocks. Now he stops, listening. He hears HOOFBEATS. He scrambles to the top of a boulder and looks down.
WHAT HE SEES. The four Cowboys far below are riding away from the base of the hill.
EXT. MOUNTAIN SPRING – MORNING
Mal comes out of the rocks. Ezra’s rifle is no longer propped where he left it. Ezra is gone. Mal rushes to the edge of
the spring, in agony. He looks around desperately, and then freezes.
Ezra’s dead body is floating away down the mountain stream.
