EXT. CASA GRANDE – VERANDA – MORNING
Scruffy, scratching his belly, walks along the porch of the main ranch house, the casa grande. As he comes up to us at
the corner and looks around, we see that he is wearing Jake’s elaborately tooled, double gunbelt with the pearl-handled Colts.
As he moves down the other side of the house, we see McKendrick standing at a window, looking out.
INT. LIVING ROOM – MORNING
We’re behind McKendrick now. On the wall next to the window there is a large, framed photograph of Murdo McKendrick, a big, ferocious man, sitting rather stiffly in a chair. On one side of him stands his wife, as thin and tough as a nail. On the other, beneath a large, paternal hand, a small boy — young Ethan.
McKendrick turns away from the window and for an instant his eye is stopped by the photograph. McKendrick looks unsettled. He hasn’t slept.
INT. BEDROOM (SECOND FLOOR) – MORNING
Augie is huddled on a bed in the corner of the dark room, frightened, still wearing the nightshirt he had on when abducted. Suddenly, sunlight blinds him.
The Watching Cowboy from the night before has thrown open the curtains. He looks out over the roof of the veranda,
then turns back. He gives Augie an odd look and moves toward the door, first kicking a Guard Cowboy awake in his chair.
EXT. ROLLING RANGE – MORNING
Emmett and Mal ride side by side. Relentless. You wouldn’t want to be the people they’re going to visit.
