Despite the local legends, Sam Deeds' (Chris Cooper's) father Buddy (Matthew McConaughey) didn't kill corrupt Sheriff Charlie Wade (Kris Kristofferson); a frightened deputy Hollis (Jeff Monahan) did. Sam also learns that he and Pilar (Elizabeth Peña) are half-siblings, thanks to Buddy's affair with Pilar's mother. This is why Buddy tried to prevent them from dating as teenagers. Sam tells this to Pilar, and they decide that it doesn't matter. They are still in love, and want to continue their relationship.
Thanks, b erdogan and Lance B!
