Back at the impromptu surgery site, Joseph has a little fire going. A cold gray drizzle has begun to fall. Cullen picks up Lily and lays her on a patch dead grass away from the mud. He looks down into her unconscious face for a long time, rain dripping off the brim of his hat, his breath coming out in misty bursts. He touches the back of his hand to her brow and looks worried. After a long while, he gets up and heads for his horse. Joseph is surprised he's leaving but Cullen says he's got somewhere he needs to be. Joseph thanks him for helping Lily. Cullen rides off for about a minute before he stops his horse. "Dammit," he whispers, and heads back. "You ain't thought this thing through, have you?" he asks Joseph. "Indian brings that woman back to town, Indian don't get out alive." Joseph is genuinely perplexed by this, saying, "But I live there, at the church." Cullen tells him about the bodies that were brought back to town, how everyone's seen how they died. "Why cut them up? What do your people get out of it?" Cullen asks. "Your people have done much worse," Joseph says. Cullen doesn't disagree with him, but the fact remains that Joseph is a dead man if he brings Lily back. Cullen says he'll take her in himself. Joseph scowls, but gets on his horse and rides away. Cullen sighs and looks sad because his plans for vengeance will have to be delayed now. Big pouty baby.
