We begin the episode continuing with Taggart complaining about being hit on the head with a shovel. He then pleads for a favor and asks Hedley to hang Bart by his neck until dead. Hedley returns to his window and speaks with Boris the Hangman once more. He asks if there is a way to work in a special. Boris laments he is so busy he will not be able to work him in until Monday. While this conversation is taking place, we are about to see a man and his horse being hung. Hedley returns to his office, banging his head again on his window. As the episode comes to a close, Taggart assures Hedley Lamarr that when he and his men get through, the people of Rock Ridge will feel like a chicken that's been caught in a tractor's nuts! As the two laugh at the image, we hear the sudden bang of the gallows and Taggart jumps into Hedley's arms. Hedley comforts him, telling him it's just a man and his horse being hung. He then begins to shush him followed by humming a lullaby.
