EXT. MOUTH OF CANYON TRAIL – DAY
Mal and Conrad, mounted; are waiting as Emmett and Paden ride out of the mouth of the canyon. Beyond them, the outlaws’ horses scatter toward the horizon. Paden jumps off his horse and picks up the strongbox.
IN THE ROCKS ABOVE THEM the Sentinel from the outlaw camp positions himself to fire at the men below.
That was some idea of yours. Next time you go in.
Paden is tying the strongbox to his saddlehorn when there is the loud CLICK of Conrad’s rifle being cocked. He nervously points it at the others.
I knew it. Put that box on my horse.
Mister, you got a lot to learn about people.
A SHOT rings out. Conrad takes it in the chest and flies off his horse. Now an amazing sight — Emmett, Paden, and Mal all turn and fire at once. The Sentinel is really dead.
EXT. DESERT RISE – DAY
Below in the distance the wagon train moves across the desert, dwarfed by giant rock walls. Now, coming right PAST CAMERA, at a gallop ride Emmett, Paden, Mal, and Conrad’s horse with his body slung over it.
