Oleg's Trading Post
Upon arriving, Melchior gets an unpleasant surprise—not only is he expected to deal with bandits, but immediately! Svetlana and Oleg had indeed been beset these past few months and Restov has promised aid . . . him! The bandits will arrive at dawn on the 8th of the month: tomorrow.
Melchior puts the three lackeys to sleep before they are even aware of his presence.
Happs put the stable to fire. Melchior decapitates him (almost) and puts the fire out.
