Farther down the trail they run into some mexicans who live in the mountains who are in need of a doctor, which one of the men happens to be. He agrees to help the mexicans and the other two men agree to look after his goods.
As they travel, one of the men begins a quick descent into madness. He thinks the other man is trying to kill him and steal his gold. He decides to take action first; he shoots the other man and leaves him for dead.
