Epilogue – based on “The Turn of the Wheel,” a teleplay by Rod Peterson & Paul Savage and story by Arthur Browne, Jr.
(The DOCTOR is attending a man lying on a gaming table. MANNUS, GORDON and his HENCHMAN come into the saloon from the saloon office, on their way to the Laramie sheriff’s office with MORT CORY, JESS HARPER and the Laramie DEPUTY herding them. Two men bring ABBEY O’NEILL’s body out on a stretcher. SLIM SHERMAN is sitting at a table in the saloon. He watches as ABBEY O’NEILLSs body goes by.)
JESS HARPER: (Approaches SLIM SHERMAN’s table) Slim, Mort was wonderin’ about those plates.
SLIM SHERMAN: (Aimlessly looking at items from Abbey’s dressing table.) Well, she said that… Billy had ’em.
MORT CORY: (Picks up Billy’s picture, shakes it, opens the back and finds the counterfeiting plates.) Thanks, Slim.
JESS HARPER: You ready to go home, Pard?
SLIM SHERMAN: Ya’ think Daisy and Mike would have a former saloonkeeper around?
JESS HARPER: (Pats SLIM SHERMANs back) What they don’t know won’t hurt ’em.
(SLIM SHERMAN gathers Abbey’s personal items and gets up. JESS HARPER follows him out the door.)
