        Queenie sings "Mis'ry's Comin' Aroun," and says that she knows something bad is going to happen. Julie gets upset about the song, and she and Steve rehearse for the evening. They learn that the sheriff is coming to arrest them and will be there soon, and Julie collapses. Steve cuts Julie's hand and drinks some of her blood as the sheriffs arrive. This scene shows how segregated the South was in this time, and how a mixed-race marriage was considered a crime.
