depends on the st johns idea of injured going to die anyway..
they tried to fry lee and mark then some how he gets an arrow...
by that reasoning if say mark get a paper cut or a splinter from the fences and still died you know any injury no matter how small will be used as an excuse to chop em up.
now one thing i'm a little unsure about is where do they chop up mark ? can't of been the barn as lilly and larry would of seen them..so they must of done it upstairs..
