Tracker gets up on his horse. The Swede stands between him and the train, a red flag in his hand. The Swede waves the flag and Tracker is off to an early lead. The train heaves its great bulk along the track. A man shoves chunks of wood into the furnace. The wheels turn faster. The train catches up to Tracker, then begins to overtake him. Tracker pushes his horse, but to no avail. He loses the race, although not by much. Doc is triumphant. The Reverend, Ruth and Joseph look distraught.
Doc returns to his train car with Senator Crane. Laughing, he says, "I think the Chief got my message loud and clear!" Crane congratulates him, but he hasn't forgotten about that whole thing with the missing $147,000. He threatens to send investigators after Doc. Doc's feeling of triumph fades. He looks worried. Then he decides Crane is bluffing. He thinks the Senator is still beholden to him. "If you fall, you fall with me." With a good bit of pleasure, Crane disabuses Doc of that notion. He's sold his land in Nebraska and divested himself of his Credit Mobilier stock. Doc has nothing on him now. "You once had my head in a vise, Thomas. Now I have your pecker in my pocket." That's two penis references he's made one episode. Not that I'm counting or anything. Crane tells Doc that he's leaving for Chicago the next day and will report him as soon as he arrives. "You'll be trading in your fancy duds for prison pinstripes!" With that, he turns to go. Doc pleads with him, but he doesn't even look back on his way out.
Joseph and the young woman in the hat seek out Lily. The woman holds out the hat, her eyes filled with sadness and understanding. "She wants you to have this," Joseph says. "And she wanted you to know she, too, has lost her husband. He was killed in a fight with one of his own arrows." Lily glances downward, realizing she killed this woman's husband. Joseph explains that the other braves brought the hat to her. Lily takes the hat. She's not angry or defensive. She understands. She takes the feather from the hat and gives it back to the woman. There's enough sorrow to share. Cullen watches from a distance.
Many Horses goes to the now-empty church. He hangs a necklace made of shell and bone over a cross. The bone looks like maybe it's been carved into a whistle. He looks at it for a long time, sighs, then walks away.
Outside, he's met by the Reverend, Ruth and Joseph. "We will now return," Many Horses says. The Reverend begs him to reconsider, but he turns to Joseph. "Son, these people are not good. If you stay here, you will die." Joseph is torn. His father asks him to come back with him, but Joseph says he can't. He glances over at Ruth and the Reverend and says again, "I can't." With that, Many Horses and his people turn and leave. In the distance, the sky is black and thunder crackles. Tracker gives his little brother a look of contempt. Joseph watches them go before walking away with Ruth. "Why did you leave him?" she asks. "So I could help the inferiors," he answers. Ruth looks embarrassed to hear her own words. Joseph looks like he's going to cry.
