The Heap, now in a Costa Rican jungle, comes upon two prospectors that have hit the mother load in a jungle stream. He watches as Ned attempts to drown his pal in a quicksand pit in order not to have to share the new-found wealth and leaves, then unbeknownst saves him. But Ned is too free a talker in town and two other thugs hear and take Ned to the site of the strike. It's then that Ned learns that there is no honor among thieves.
