What surprised me the most about the rattlesnake scene with with Billy was how Boyd just walked off, to let Billy die. I figured he would have had some anti-venom with him. If Billy gets bitten, then Boyd can administer the anti-venom and he's done two things: shown that Billy is a charlitan, and demonstrated his compassion to the assembled flock which only would have raised his esteem in their eyes. And the unspoken message to Billy and his sister is: Next time you won't be so lucky; best clear out now while you can. Win-win and he doesn't have to kill the guy. Boyd's usually smart enough to see all those angles.
In any event, I'm guessing Billy's mastermind sister has a supply of anti-venom handy, just in case. Boyd could have pre-empted her though, and stayed one move ahead.
I noticed that Boyd smirked when the sister yelled out " Call a Ambulance ! "
that spoke volumes to me ,
1st That she didn't have anti-venom
2nd She didn't call out to her Lord to save him
Rattlers bites are dangerous, it's a two prong danger (pun intended
) as the venom destroys tissue & mussel while also being a potent nerve agent , as well it can kill you really fast if it's directly injected in to a vein as it will destroy/stop your heart/lungs when it reaches there . when injected into a artery in a limb you can lose that limb due to gangrene from the wide spread tissue damage as the artery spreads the venom quickly thru out the limb .
It's all depends on the where on the body the bite is . You can die very quickly with anti-venom no help at all if the bite is in the wrong place (or in Boyd's case the right place )
Boyd walked away thinking an " Eye For An Eye "
