Running from Captain Grisham and his men, the Queen of Swords flees into an abandoned mine to escape capture. Capt. Grisham follows, and as the Queen turns to fight and they confront each other, an earthquake traps them both inside.

Their air supply is cut off, and as it slowly dwindles, the two enemies face each other. They relive past confrontations as they struggle to survive.

Will the Queen and Grisham kill each other before the lack of oxygen does? Or will the Captain's troops get through the blocked rubble in time to keep the two from suffocating?

The Queen faces several unpleasant prospects. This could be the end for the Queen one way or another.

Which would you choose: Death by suffocation, or capture and execution at the hands of Montoya if the Captain's troops manage to rescue them in time?
