The sun rises on a new day in Lead City. As Colman prepares himself to take part in the competition, Pearl awakens from her feverish slumber. No stranger to her husbands impetuous ways Pearl realizes that Colman has found his way into trouble. She urges him to remove himself but Colman soon realizes there’s no way out.
