His shady stock dealings out of the way, Doc goes to check on Lily. She's been lounging in the tub long enough to cause some concern. Doc calls to her from outside the door. She seems a bit uncomfortable or maybe she's just annoyed at having her solitude intruded upon. He invites her to dinner. She makes herself sound chipper as she accepts the offer. She just wants him to go away, but then she remembers something: "Has the reward been given to anyone?" Doc offers to make sure Mr. Bohannon gets the money, but Lily turns him down, saying there's someone else who deserves it.
Some time later, she makes her way through the town. Magically, she has managed to find a clean, perfectly tailored dress to wear in this place full of grimy men and destitute whores. Hiking up her skirts, she picks her way over muddy patches. Most of the men she passes are quite polite and tip their hats to her, but the ladies in the cathouse are less welcoming. "Stay off my corner, sweetheart," one woman says. "What do ya say, blondie? Them injuns teach you anything?" Beside her, the tattooed lady tells her to knock it off and calls after Lily: "Hey, I'm sorry, ma'am. These dirty whores don't know a lady when they see one." Lily takes a few deep breaths and keeps on walking. I bet that tattooed girl is super popular with her coworkers.
Finally Lily comes to the church. Joseph sits inside, praying. "Where there is hatred, let me show love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith." He sounds so earnest, it's really kind of heartbreaking. He's pleased to see her. "You look like you're feeling much better," he says. "It's amazing what a little soap and water can do," she says. And a curling iron and a new dress and a Zoom! teeth whitening. She gives him a look over and notices with a smile that he's cut his hair. He shyly runs his hand over his new 'do. I wish this whole show was about Joseph and his hair and their adventures through life. Lily tries to give him the reward money, pressing the gold coins into his palm, but he declines. She thinks it's because he's afraid people will know, so she assures him she hasn't told anybody about him. He explains he can't take the money because he's not a bounty hunter. "It's my duty to help," he says. The Reverend, who must have smelled that sweet, sweet money like chum in the water, suddenly appears and encourages Joseph to take it. "That money will buy a lot of Bibles," he says. Joseph introduces Lily to Reverend Cole. The Reverend calls her the "fair-haired maiden of the West" and shows her Doc's article. The artist's rendition shows Robert stabbing their attacker with an arrow while Lily faints against a tree. Lily goes along with it. The Reverend is worried that Indians will die as a result of the article. Lily bristles. "The Indians attacked us. If they die, they will be to blame, not me." He tries to tell her about the Sand Creek Massacre, appealing to her to correct any misinformation in the article. "Try to see the bigger picture," he pleads with her. "My husband was slaughtered in front of me; it's a little hard to see the bigger picture," she says. She takes her leave as Joseph stands around looking awkward and uncomfortable.
