Good point, his brother asking for forgiveness from a bandit.  I think that Tuco's brother had a lot of anger built up inside him toward Tuco because of his absence from his family - being a bandit and having a HUUUGE rap sheet.  His brother then released his anger by slapping Tuco, then Tuco hititng him back.  Afterwards, I think Tuco's brother realized that, no matter what kind of person Tuco is - good or bad, he's still his brother and should accept him for who is whether bad or good, you know?

You can see the "soft spot" in Tuco's heart, too, when he and the monk are bringing Blondie in the monastery.  The look on Tuco's face as he sees the wounded being cared for.  He has a face of pity and sorrow.  You can just see it in his eyes, the way he gazes around at everyone there.

Actually, the most recent DVD with the restored Italian scenes explains the eyepatch.  Tuco & Blondie have to take the confederate wagon through confederate lines to get to Sad Hill.  They reach a checkpoint and are asked for papers (by the old dude who plays the stationmaster in the opening scene of OATITW, btw).  Tuco produces Bill Carson's papers, and scams his way through the checkpoint - he needs the eyepatch in case he runs into a Reb who might vaguely remember Carson,  Bill Carson.  

Add Identity Theft to the list of Tuco's crimes.

Also, the eyepatch has gotta be off while he get's the "good treatment" - Wallace stuck his thumbs in both eyes, didn't he?

not the hangman's but just stuff he's never caught for
like assuming bill carson's I.D.
telling blondie "it's all over for you now". "it's a good thing you were with me when this happened" (blondie's suntanning)
