Do you want to find out?
(dropping his rope)
I think we should do like he says.
As the others start to unbuckle their holsters, Charlie, the compliant one, draws on Mal. Mal shoots him out of the saddle, dead. The others freeze.
EXT. ROAD – OUTSIDE SILVERADO – DUSK
The three surviving deputies, gunless, trudge along the road. Garth holds his wounded hand close to his body.
INT. CAVE – DUSK
Emmett lies sleeping in the flickering light of the fire. Mal sits nearby, his Henry rifle lying at his feet. He is examining the Henry that Emmett had at the arroyo. Emmett wakes up, wincing.
How you feeling?
Emmett’s look makes it clear — “bad”.
I’d be worse if you hadn’t come along.
I didn’t just come along. I was looking for you.
(Emmett doesn’t understand)
Jake said you were out there. I saw him in town, and he told me about that business the other day. Said you boys took a Henry rifle off one of McKendrick’s men. I wanted to see it.
Mal looks at the rifle in his arms sadly.
