Time-lapse photography shows clouds. More clouds. Then we get a shot of Luke pursing his lips as the Lone Ranger.
Luke rides into the Apache camp on Silver. Kulakinah says, "Where have you been? I've been waiting for you." Luke jumps off his horse and walks toward the man. "I've decided to stay." Kulakinah reminds him that his work is done, that he can go home now. Luke replies, "I am home. I want to protect my family. I want to wear the mask and bring the good hope and the evil fear. Kansas City wasn't the end, for me or for Tonto. It was just the beginning." Kulakinah says that sounds just about right to him. Then he hands Harmon's Texas Ranger badge over to Luke. Blah volunteer, blah lawless land, justice for all, blah. Luke ponders the badge for a second and says, "I guess I earned it." Kulakinah: "You're the only Ranger left." Pause. "The Lone Ranger." Then he says, "And your father forgives you." Luke: "My father?" Kulakinah: "And your brother. Very proud. They're together now, behind you waiting to see how you will stir up the stars." Luke thanks Kulakinah, with tears in his pretty blue eyes. Then he finds Tonto, and asks if he wants to go out of town and get into trouble. Tonto says sure! But then he asks Alope if she wants to come too. Luke and Alope smile at each other, and they flirt. Because all the women in Dallas love Luke. It's a whole world of Luke-loving.
Tonto and Luke ride off through the grasslands. Luke thanks Tonto, and says he couldn't have done it without him. Tonto laughs and says that no, he couldn't -- but Tonto most certainly could have done it without Luke. They ride. They bond. They call each other "Ranger" and "keemosabe." And they ride, hard -- through the grassy plains and into their destiny. All the while, a rock-and-roll version of the theme to The Lone Ranger rolls out in the background. Cut to various scenes of the two of them in their masked getups riding all over the place, over hills, over vales, through trees on off the dusty trails. The End. Finally, the hammer falls out of its own accord. Thank goodness. I'm free.
