After 50 years of watching this film (probably more than 200 times), only a few months ago I noticed this for the first time: in the final showdown at Sad Hill, uco and Blondie meet eyes for a second, and Blondie gives a quick but perceptible nod.  Has this been discussed before?  I presume it was either inadvertent, or Blondie is sending a message that they're a team against The Bad.

I don't recall a discussion on this! Nor do I recall the gesture offhand. Anyone?

Well, it is a VERY small nod. I'm not sure Tuco could even have seen it, at that distance. I get the more the impression he was nodding to himself.
