* The discovery that [[spoiler: Juan's entire band of outlaws, including all of his sons, have been brutally massacred. And of course John's death]].
* The execution scene.
* Juan begins the story only interested in riches and getting that one big score. Later in the story [[spoiler: after the death of his family,]] he finds himself with a bag of valuables worth a small fortune. They may as well be made from tin for all Juan cares. John's silent acknowledgement of the situation is equally heartbreaking.
* ''[[DownerEnding "What about me?"]]''
