Jamie is carried to a nearby farmhouse where 18 Highland men have gathered. Harold Grey, Earl of Melton, arrives as representative of the Duke of Cumberland and announces the survivors will be shot. As each man is led outside to be executed, Melton takes his name for the records. At Jamie's turn, Melton recognizes him as famed Jacobite ├▒Red Jamie├«, but is forbidden to execute him because Jamie released his younger brother, Lord John Grey, at Preston rather than kill him.
