We have the mob scene when they proceed to Sherburn’s house. They knock over the front fence only to see Sherburn on the front porch with a shotgun. I don't see any hope for the con-artists. If anything we begin to see a darker underside to their exploits. THey constantly toy with poor Jim over his run away slave status and proceed to cause chaos that is all together negative in the town.
