This was another scene that didn’t exist in the original version of the script. I added it to break up the previous scene from the following one, which otherwise would have gone straight from “rustlers beaten” to “rustlers tied up,” which felt a bit too linear to me. I like little side beats like this to break up the narrative and spotlight some different characters.

I especially like this scene since I haven’t really had Sky interact with Bennesaud all that much, so it was nice to give them a moment. And it establishes a bit of good-natured strength competitiveness between them, which was not something I had originally planned for their relationship. It’s definitely fun to see where the characters take you as a writer sometimes.
