In a tense phone conversation, Lureen tells Ennis that Jack died in an accident while changing a tire; However, Ennis suspects he was murdered by men who discovered his secret life.
Obviously, Ennis was deeply saddened to learn how Jack had really died. Lureen had to make up a lie because of this. She told the lie to Ennis, as she had told others many times before, but she knew that Ennis understood what really happened to Jack. He was brutally beaten to death.
Jack admits he’s travelling to Mexico for sex because Ennis can’t give him enough of life. They argue but nothing is resolved. Jack remembers a time on Brokeback when Ennis would just hug him and stand by the fire.
It’s an uncomfortable encounter, to say the least. Dad seems to be running the show, and he makes it pretty clear that he knows what Jack and Ennis were up to by saying, “I know where Brokeback Mountain is.”
