Elsewhere in town, Cullen has that crappy photograph in one hand and a bottle of liquor in the other. He looks at the picture for a long time. The horrible cut-and-paste job makes him so sad that he has to toss the picture into a nearby fire. He downs the rest of the bottle and tosses it aside, the damned litterbug. Elam walks by and suddenly Cullen is feeling talkative. "That sonofabitch got away because of you," he says, following Elam. Elam's like, "How you figure that?" Cullen says, "You killed Johnson before he could give me Harper's name." It's amazing any of these people are alive, the way they loudly discuss murdering people. They're just standing there next to some tents, blabbing away. Elam looks nervous, as well he should. He lowers his voice just a bit and reminds Cullen: "I killed Johnson before he killed you." Cullen's still pissed. He thinks he could've gotten a name out of Johnson and then killed Harper before he had a chance to run. Elam and I both think he's drunk and crazy. Elam tries to leave, but Cullen calls him back. "You have any idea what they took from me?" Cullen asks. Elam fixes him with an intense look. "They ain't took nothing from you that ain't been took from me," he says. Does Cullen have a moment of epiphany? Does he realize that many, many people have had it worse than him? Does he realize how self-indulgent he's being? No, because then the show would be over. I will say, though, that he seems to have washed his face and he's really quite handsome under that grime. Too bad he's so annoying.
