The couple quickly take the next train out of town. Switch to a bus. Steal a car. They are not sure where they are going to be safe nor does the audience have any idea where they are coming from. I could not figure where the story opens but guessing Chicago. Maybe I missed something. The decision is made to head for Long’s aunt & uncle's Minnesota farm.
Meanwhile, back in mystery town, the police attempt to apprehend Burr and his gang. Burr escapes but a gunshot wound puts him out of circulation for two months. However, the hole in Burr’s stomach is smaller than any hole in this script. By now, no one could possibly find the newlyweds. Never mind the couple’s back rent for their original apartment, which is several months in arrears!
The trail seems impossibly cold until Burr’s cop-on-the-take finds the couple by checking Brodie’s unopened apartment mail. A letter from the aunt and uncle awaits with their return address on the envelope. Burr is roughly a twelve hour drive away, perhaps confirming the Chicago location. The farm no longer a safe haven, Brodie puts his wife on a bus for California while he deals with Burr.
