It is an emotional task for Buck who still loves her but he accepts it. She gives him her wedding ring to show why he is looking for her husband Jack. Buck finds the town and inquires about Jack. No one responds but thieves in the bar jump him that night for the ring. Jack intervenes to help Buck but refuses to return with Buck.
