Back at Elkins’ saloon, Dean saunters in wearing “better gear” – it’s the duster, black vest, and perfect hat we saw in the opening shoot-out scene.
Elkins: New hat?
Dean: I look good.
Yes. Yes. You. Do.
Dean: Where’s the posse?
Elkins: You’re the only greenhorn dumb enough to chase a ghost.
Dean: Sheriff’s tough as nails. He’ll be here.
Then, off-stage as it were, they hear Oh, God! The Sheriff’s dead!
Elkins and Dean head out and see a pile of ash (with a half-burned human skull) and the sheriff’s badge on top all nice and shiny.
Dean: Who’s the sheriff now?
Elkins pins the badge on Dean. Dean looks momentarily terrified.
In a cabin in the middle of nowhere, two men walk in to face a man sitting at a wide desk, writing and drinking. A veritable old west Hemingway. They ask if he’s Samuel Colt.
SC: You have the wrong drunk, gentlemen.
They tell him they’ve been looking for him and when he looks up, their eyes go black. He tries to tell them he’s not looking for trouble, that he’s “given that up,” but they want him to open the Devil’s Gate. He shoots them both with The Colt, but is disgruntled that in doing so he broke a perfectly good bottle of booze.
Back in Sunrise, the Deputy is in a hotel room, packing up in a hurry. There’s a knock at his door and a falsetto voice says it’s a “candy gram.” I couldn’t hear who for, though. Drat. ETA: He says, “Candy gram for Mongo.” Of course our boy is a Blazing Saddles fan. :) Thanks again, you with quicker ears than me!
The deputy opens the door and Dean points a gun in his face saying, “Howdy, Pilgrim.”
Deputy: I ain’t no pilgrim!
Dean’s like, whatever and pushes his way into the room.
Dean: I missed you at the posse this morning. I was a one-man wolf pack, thanks to you.
Dean basically tells the guy that he can’t outrun Finch—that Finch has already taken out the Judge and the Sheriff and the only way to stop him from killing the Deputy, too, is if they gank him first (to which the Deputy is all wth hell does gank mean). He tells the Deputy he just has to play his part: bait.
