As mentioned elsewhere, I wondered why Indio would just be sentenced to prison while Tuco was sentenced to for a hanging.

There were many arguments about different capital punishment laws in different areas.  Maybe after 18 months they finally decided to execute Indio and a breakout was necessary.

But I like the earlier theory about Indio wanting to stay in prison to gain the carpenter's trust.    Still one has to ask at what point did Indio realize that the carpenter had a secret worth knowing?  I'm guessing the carpenter didn't say anything right away.  And if that was the reason, wouldn't another gangmember have to know?  When Indio told his "parable", nobody seemed to know anything.

On a side note, have you ever wondered why the carpenter was in prison?  He knew he created the safe disguised as furniture.  It sounded the idea of stealing money stayed with him.  Do you think he may have attempted a robbery?

Perhaps Indio was trying to gain the carpenters trust.....he seemed pretty cool and not shocked when they heard the shooting in the jail and obviously new the gang were here to spring him. So once he knew the carpenters secret he must have got a message to the gang to come and get him.....

ref why he was in jail....maybe he tried to blackmail the bank manager when he found out his drinks cabinet was actually disguising the safe?
