Epilogue – based on the teleplay by Paul Savage and story by Dan Ullman

 

(SUMNER, SARAH, and CHAD CAMPBELL, JESS and SLIM are standing together in the Campbell’s ranch yard.)

 

SLIM: Well, we oughta be back in a week or so.

 

SUMNER CAMPBELL: There’ll be a hearing and then it’s all over.

 

CHAD CAMPBELL: The MacIntire’s can’t make trouble in Rawlins?

 

JESS: There won’t be any trouble, Chad.

 

CHAD CAMPBELL: But Pa killed his son.What’s changed?

 

SLIM: Well, MacIntire’s changed…. and his hold on Rawlins.

 

JESS: Yeah, and a trio of US marshalls are movin’ in to see it stays that way.

 

SLIM: Fact is, there’s only one problem left.

 

SUMNER CAMPBELL: What’s that?

 

SLIM: Getting Jess to hand over his badge. He’s turned into such a tough character, I think the sheriff’s ’bout half afraid to ask him for it.

 

(JESS unpins the badge from his vest as SUMNER CAMPBELL, SLIM and JESS walk off towards the horses.)
