Bell thinks about the truth and how it's incorruptible.
Bell also thinks about how important community is. He illustrates this point with a story about a couple in California who would rent out a room to old people, kill them, and cash their social security checks.
"They'd torture em first" (5.1.3), Bell remembers.
And Bell recalls that the neighbors called the cops when they saw a man in a dog collar.
"All that hollerin and diggin in the yard didnt bring it" (5.1.4). Imagine that.
Bell drives to Odessa to find Llewelyn, but he finds Llewelyn's wife instead.
Bell and Llewelyn's wife go to the Sunshine Café to have coffee and talk.
It's not a very productive conversation. Even if she knew where Llewelyn was, his wife wouldn't tell Bell.
That night, Bell gets a call from another sheriff in Eagle Pass, where the shootout from the night before took place.
Bell and the Eagle Pass sheriff examine the place, amazed at all the carnage.
Bell drives back home and talks to his wife about crime. The two of them wonder where Llewelyn is, and if he's even still alive.
Now we're in an office in Houston, and some guy named Wells is trying to learn about "the invincible Mr Chigurh" (5.3.24), a man more dangerous than Mario with a Super Star.
Well is hired by an unnamed man (someone behind this crazy drug-running scheme) to find Chigurh and get the money back.
Wells goes to check out the hotel across the street. He examines Chigurh's room and Llewelyn's room.
Then, before you know it, Wells is by Llewelyn's bedside in a hospital in Mexico. He introduces himself as Carson Wells and tells Llewelyn all about the evil man chasing him.
Wells tells Llewelyn that Chigurh found him because of there's a transponder hidden in the cash.
Speaking of that cash… where is it?
Llewelyn won't tell.
Wells obviously wants Llewelyn to get it back, since he'd "rather deal with [him] than with this sugar guy" (5.3.253).
Wells gives Llewelyn his card, saying he can arrange for him to even have a cut of the cash. He also tells Llewelyn to call his wife. "When I talked to her she sounded pretty worried" (5.3.297).
