The Swede walks by just as Cullen and Doc are exiting the train car. The Swede aims Beauty at Cullen. "What the hell are you doing, man?" Doc asks, aghast. "He's the son of a bitch who killed Johnson! We're gonna hang him," says the Swede. "Nonsense," Doc tells him. "This is my new foreman!" Elam, standing nearby, can't help but smile. The Swede, on the other hand, looks both devastated and baffled. "Find me someone else to hang," Doc tells him. Cullen saunters past the Swede, giving him a smartass little wink. He tips his hat toward Elam as he walks by. Elam nods back.
The episode ends with Cullen taking over Johnson's old tent. A man offers to clear out Johnson's old things, but Cullen tells him to leave it. Once inside, he takes a moment to relax. He even looks a tiny bit happy. Then he remembers he's supposed to be all morose and vengeful. Sad string music plays. He takes a bit of canvas out of his coat pocket; it's a tattered piece of the needlepoint his wife was working on. He holds it to his face, breathes deeply and closes his eyes. The screen fades to black.
