Upon seeing Cándido on the side of the road, Delaney immediately pulls over and yells at him to stay where he is, calling 911 and intending to turn the Mexican in to the police. Cándido cannot allow this to happen and runs into traffic to get away, causing a truck to swerve and to hit Delaney's improperly parked car. Delaney could care less, only waiting long enough for the tow truck to pick up his car before he takes off after the Mexican. By now, he has convinced himself that Cándido is responsible for all of the vandalism, stealing, and even the fire, and, in a haze of anger, he tracks the Mexican's footprints. The trail goes by the Arroyo Blanco gate, and Delaney sees that the wall has been vandalized once again and that both of the trip-wire cameras have been triggered. He quickly goes home to shower, eat, and grab his gun, and then develops the film. To his surprise, it is Jack Jr.'s face that is caught on the film, not Cándido's, but this does not stop him from going after the Mexican. Delaney follows the footprints to Cándido's makeshift hut, where América has just told him that Socorro is blind and the truth about the rape in the canyon. As Delaney bursts in on them, carrying a gun, all of them are suddenly swept away by a raging river. In the deluge, América and Cándido lose Socorro, and yet, despite his despair, when Cándido sees Delaney struggling in the water, he reaches his hand out to save him.
