* StartOfDarkness: Taylor almost seems like an okay guy, genuinely looking out for his clients' interests; but he sees that there really is gold in them thar hills and becomes ObviouslyEvil.

Shep is the companion of a grizzled old prospector named Jonathan, who returns from the wilderness to find his partner in his current venture died, leaving behind a particularly whiny kid (Tommy), and an ObviouslyEvil lawyer (Taylor) in charge of the partnership. Jonathan leaves Shep behind to help Tommy before returning to the mountains; but Shep soon goes on a hunger strike to bring Tommy and Taylor to Jonathan's cabin just in time to save the prospector from dying of fever, thanks to the strange bond between dog and man. While the duo is there, they join Jonathan in panning for gold -- and the prospector shows them where he'd been stashing the dust he's collected so far. Inevitably, Taylor catches GoldFever, and murders the grizzled old guy before Shep's eyes.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Based on the amount of frost that gathers on Taylor's beard, hair, shirt, and hands, he should have died of hypothermia a long time before he falls to his death.

* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: How Taylor sets about getting rid of Jonathan. Initially, he set up a loose rock on a mountain ledge for Jonathan to trip on and fall off the side, but when Jonathan manages to avoid the rock, Taylor resorts to pushing him off, figuring there wouldn't be any witnesses anyway.

** Taylor even lampshades this trope at the moment Jonathan is offed. It also really bites Johnathan in the butt as he claimed Taylor didn't have the guts to ''shoot'' him.
