Simon Cross pours bleach over Edward Maughan, the young sinner, and gets a wire brush.
He says he is going to scrub the sin from Maughan with the wire brush and offers the brushes to the villagers.
The final one he saves for Maughan’s girlfriend.
She refuses to do it, even at gunpoint.
Cross throws her in the hole too and pours a vat of boiling water over the pair.
The villagers move in and scrub the flesh from their bodies.
Maughan dies, but the girl survives.
Cross then says that they need to get back in God’s graces and demands that they declare war on the Freelands.
