Along the way, he is picked up by a stage coach containing passengers, among them are a snooty schoolmarm, a gentleman who recognizes Hex from his days in the Confederate Army (but does not communicate this) and the deputy who is taking criminal Blackjack Joris into custody. The horses pulling the wagon are scared in and crash due to Blackjack's goons breaking them free, killing the carriage riders, the deputy and Hex is beaten by Blackjack because of his Confederate uniform.
