Ranger Camp. The men are defeated. And dirty, of course. Inside his tent, Dylan ponders his badge and tries not to cry. Kelso looks vacant and distant, but at least he's not screaming for once. Usher takes a drag of his cigarette. Dylan comes out of his tent and addresses the men. They're going to ride back and gather their fallen men. Then they'll re-group at Richard Dukes's ranch.
Back at the battle scene, the bandits have, of course, abandoned their positions. The remaining Rangers survey the scene, and it's empty. Usher says, "What'd they do with our men?" Ew. They've strung the dead Rangers up by their necks in the trees. They look like the straw figures from The Blair Witch Project. McNelly says, "Cut my men down." His throat chokes, "Cut 'em down." Dawson walks over to Conchita, the Mexican woman the bandits "stole" earlier, who's strung up in a tree by her arms. She's still alive! Her body spins a bit from the ropes. She whispers to him, "Kill me." Dawson screams for McNelly.
Ranger Camp. Conchita sits with Frank Bone and the Captain. She guzzles the water from a canteen. Robert Patrick tells her to take it "slow and easy" because "the war's over." Conchita looks at him and drinks her water. Poor, dirty Conchita. Used and abused by bandits. What a horrible time she's had. Hello, Contrivance? Yeah, it's Ragdoll. Do you think you can call Betrayal in early? My hands are tired.
Dukes Ranch. The Rangers arrive. They are dirty and tired. Richard Dukes comes out and meets them. Ah, what a weary bunch. The music signals their defeat. Conchita rides in the wagon. A young Dukes asks, "Daddy? Are those the Rangers?" Ah, here is the love interest. Enter Rachael Leigh Cook in a corset. It's not a pretty sight. She takes the younger girls inside. Dylan says to Richard, "Got twelve men to bury."
