Epilogue – based upon the script “Dark Verdict” by Donn Mullally & Lee Erwin
(JESS HARPER is riding down the road. SLIM SHERMAN comes galloping up behind him.)
SLIM SHERMAN: You’re heading in the wrong direction, aren’t ya? Home is back that way.
JESS HARPER: I’m moving on, Slim. Everything I touch turns to trouble.
SLIM SHERMAN: The sheriff didn’t seem to think so. Otherwise he wouldn’ta cleared ya.
JESS HARPER: Wasn’t much else he could do.
SLIM SHERMAN: What happened here Jess, could have happened anywhere. Don’t blame yourself.
JESS HARPER: You mean you want me to stay after what I did to you.
SLIM SHERMAN: I’ve been decked before. Worse things can happen.
JESS HARPER: Yeah, I guess they can. I thought you’d be mad at me.
SLIM SHERMAN: Never mind what ya thought. I got a lot of work to do. So do you.
(SLIM SHERMAN turns his horse and gallops back towards home. JESS HARPER hesitates a moment and then follows.)
