When gunfire is heard, Hale circles the wagons and sends Bill and Duke to determine the cause. They see Comancheros leaving the site of the wreckage of another small wagon train that was attacked. The only person they find alive is a young Comanchero who warns Hale that his group is planning to attack Hale's wagon train as well, and tells them how and when. He says the Comancheros are split into two groups with one group three days away. Though Hale is inclined to believe the young man, Hawks is skeptical, believing his story may be a trap. Many of the train's passengers believe this as well, and are angry when Hale recruits some of the men to come with him to wipe out the local Comancheros. When some of the men are killed, anger turns particularly against Hale and the young Comanchero, and a mutiny develops.
