1/ A showdown. Two men on either side of a long stretch of road. The frontier town around them has closed down in anticipation. The antagonist has a woman clutched to him, though she's struggling to free herself.
2/ In silhouette, the hanged priest, left dangling and temporarily forgotten.
3/ The antagonist holds the girl tighter. She is terrified. He holds a gun to her head. She's managed to get one arm free and reaches out desperately for the other man.
4/ Inside one of the buildings, the shopkeeper/bartender is pressed with his back against the wall, peeking out the window, readying his rifle.
5/ The gunslinger's hand floats above his holster. In profile, the simple heart carved crudely into the hilt of his revolver can be seen.
