Previously on "Billy The Kid"...

This guy Murphy, he owns
a big store in Lincoln.

[BAKER] They got a
company called The House,

and they run it out of Murphy's store.

Well, Billy, I want to
say it is a great honor

to finally meet you in
the flesh. Great honor.

My partners here,

Johnny Riley, Jim Dolan.

The Santa Fe Ring run most things
out here in the West, Billy.

They are secret societies
of wealthy people.

An important aspect to your work

will be to enforce
our business interests.

[RILEY] This fellow Tunstall,
you may have seen his new store

down at the end of the street.

You see, what you
need to understand here

is that this is my kingdom.

I'll be damned if I'm gonna
let some prick Englishman

take it away from me as
long as you're around, Billy.

[JESSE] We don't wanna
see you within five miles

of our cattle or our grain stores.

Mr. Tunstall's got legitimate
business interests here.

[CHARLIE] We're on
the verge of a big w*r.

A w*r between Murphy and Tunstall.

Billy. I would like to
introduce you to my wife.

This is Irene.

It sure is nice to meet
such a handsome outlaw.

See, everyone here, they want to
see what you can do with a g*n.

We expect you to do it.

[BILLY] Charlie, who is that?

[CHARLIE] Her name is
Señorita Dulcinea del Tobosco.


These Mexican farmers
think we won't do anything

about them breakin' our deals.

You need to show them
that we mean business.

Mr. Murphy wants you to stop
selling grain to Tunstall, right now.

This is my home. I will never leave!

- [WOMAN] No! No!


Sheriff Brady, he wants
to talk to Pat Garrett.

What about the people here?
They're screaming for justice.

Maybe he goes go away for a while.

Comes back over to
your side as a lawman.

[RILEY] We've heard rumors
that Tunstall has hired McSween,

the lawyer that used to work for you.

I agree to meet with McSween,

it has to be in secret.

A great pleasure to meet you.

Unfortunately, I discovered
that Murphy himself was a crook.

But after tonight, your
whole life will change.

This is the time and place

you have waited for all your life.


We've all heard quite
a bit about you, Billy.

But the main thing from our
point of view, that is...

myself and my partner, John Tunstall,

is, of course, that you work
for Mr. Murphy and The House.

As you undoubtedly know,

we are commercial
rivals of Mr. Murphy's.


Have you ever heard of the Rings, Billy?

Especially the Santa Fe Ring?

As a matter of fact, I have.

A journalist named Ash Upson
told me about 'em a few years ago.

The Rings take different forms.

Here in New Mexico,
the Rings concentrate

on amassing huge landholdings

through the manipulation
of Spanish land grants.

That's where Murphy comes in.


He's been here long enough to
control the local Republican Party,

the election of judges, sheriffs,

district attorneys, territorial
governors, you name it.

And that is what Mr.
Tunstall wants to challenge.

I don't see how Mr. Tunstall
could challenge any of that,

even if he wanted to.

Well, Mr. Tunstall is an Englishman,

an outsider.

He has private wealth, and
he doesn't need the Ring.

He purchased a big range,
between , and , acres,

and he's been stocking it.

That's what we're doing, Billy.

Building a business, so
that we can deal honestly

and fairly with the farmers out here.

I think Mr. Upson would approve of that.

If he's someone who cares about
justice in this part of the world,

then I'm certain he would
also approve of Mr. Tunstall.



"You may not believe this,

but they are training
me up to be a lawman.

It's the only way they
can keep me out of jail.

Everybody laughs about it.

But watch out, William Bonney.

One day, I might be coming
for you with my new badge.

Regards to all the boys,
your friend, Pat Garrett."

What the hell?

Is Garrett for real?


Hey, Jesse, what do you think of Murphy?

Oh, I don't know.
He's, uh, rich, I guess.

He gets what he wants.

You think he plays fair?

You know, with all the farmers?

- Oh, you mean the Mexican farmers?
- No. I mean all the small farmers.

Seems like he owns them.

And this Englishman, Tunstall,

I think he's fair competition.

How come you know so
much about Tunstall?

You hear things.

And I don't like Murphy's henchmen.

I don't like them
either, Billy. But, uh,

I'm not being paid to like them.

I don't see that there's
much justice in the world.

I figure that's just
the way that things are,

the way they've always been.

What if you could change that?

By doing what, exactly?

I don't know. I'm just thinking.

- As far as I can see, Murphy's a crook.

What if he didn't run things?


Well, then you and I...

We wouldn't get paid, Billy.

Get some sleep, will you?

Be careful.

You don't bite the hand that feeds you

if you know what's good for you.



- [MURPHY] Billy.
- [BILLY] Howdy.

Wet your whistle. Bet you're thirsty.


Welcome to our regular meeting.

Today we want to discuss some
new business we have for you.

As you know,

some of the farmers down
on the Bonito and the Hondo

have broken their contracts with us,

therefore forfeiting their
rights to their farms.

Now, I've just returned from
a business trip to Santa Fe,

and I found a number of
investors both willing

and eager to buy those properties.

These current occupiers, now in default,

they need to be driven off the farms.

So, here's a list of them
and where you can find them.

Don't use unnecessary force.

But on the other hand, we do
expect you to do your jobs.

This is a perfectly legal operation.

These people have no right
to remain on our land.

[DOLAN] Boys, uh...

Well, you decide how you're
going to handle it, right?

It's nothing to us.

Now, Major Murphy's throwing
a party this evening,

and he'd like you all to attend.

It's a request he's made.

I hope you all find
yourselves able to oblige.

[JESSE] Not gonna miss out
on a party, are we boys?


Of course you don't.

And how about you, Billy?

Sticking around, are ya?


















Excuse us.


What's up, Billy?

When do you plan to
drive those farmers out?

Tomorrow. Why?

I won't be going with you.

Why the hell not?

I don't want to.

You do it.



Hello there, Billy.

Mrs. Riley.

I wanted to see you.

I want to talk to you. I need to.

- Uh, maybe now's not a good time.
- Oh, no. Definitely now.

I have something to say.

Get me another drink, will you?



What did you want to say?

I want to tell you about my husband.

What about your husband?


I hate him.

He treats me so bad.

You can't even imagine.

Maybe this isn't the
place to talk about this.


Light my cigarette, will ya?

Thank you.

You know, you're very
good-looking, Billy.

Can we go somewhere? I like you.

I don't think that's a good idea.

Please. Please, Billy.

I told you I hate him.
I have to get away.


I'm sorry, Mrs. Riley.

Never mind. It's not your fault.








- You f*cking lousy f*cking b*tch.
- What do you mean?

I saw you in there... with Billy.

I know what you were doing.

You was trying to get him to f*ck you,

because you're a little f*cking whore.

- I'm tired. I want to sleep.
- I've had enough of you.

Do you understand? You're
a f*cking embarrassment.

You're always out there in heat.

It's f*cking disgusting and
I've had e-f*cking-nough!

So have I! I've had enough of you!

I hate you!






[MAN] She's d*ad!


What did you do?

She sh*t me.

She tried to k*ll me! Now,
you get me some f*cking help!

Hey, hey, hey! What
the hell is happening?

- Your friend k*lled his wife.
- She sh*t me!

- Look at me!
- Okay, okay, okay. Just...

Billy. Billy, put it down, all right?

Hey, go fetch the doctor, huh?

Hey, come on. Come on. Let's go inside.

I'll help you, all right? Come on.

- Oh, f*ck.
- We need a f*cking Sheriff!

Just go!

Come on. Come on.


[BILLY] Is Tunstall back yet?

[CHARLIE] Sure is.

He wants to meet you up at my farm.

All right.


Hah! Hah!


[JESSE] Okay.

Let's see if we can't chase
these fellas outta here.

- Yeah.
- [JESSE] Let's go, boys.

- Yup, yup!
- Hyah! Hyah!

- [MAN] Yup!
- [OLINGER] Let's go, boys!


Get back.

[OLINGER] Let's go, boys!


What the hell you boys up to?

You gotta clear outta here!

The hell I will.

Now, you get off my property! You hear?




We don't wanna k*ll ya!

Just come out and give yourselves up!

- [MAN] This is our property!
- [BAKER] Not your land anymore!

[MAN] You got no right being here!

We got every right to be here!


[LOWERED VOICE] Get in behind them.

- You got us?
- Get around behind them.

- Yeah.
- We got you.



- [COCKS g*n]
- [BAKER] Come on out, now.

Drop your g*n. We ain't gonna k*ll you.

[MAN] Me and my family have
worked this land close on years!

I'm not giving it to people like you!

[BAKER] You cannot
fight the future, boy!

Just come on out here!


Come on!



- Come here, sweetheart.

Come on!



[WOMAN] Help! Help me, somebody!



Stop, please!





[WOMAN] No, please, stop!


[WOMAN] No, please! Don't!

- [g*n]




Hola, Billy.

Hola, Manuela.






Hyah! Hyah! Hyah!



I'm so very glad to meet you, Billy.

My name's John Tunstall.


Hyah, hyah!

Get in the barn.

Get in the barn! Get back! Go!



Get in the house! Get in the house!


- No!

John! Come on!







[WOMAN] No, leave us! Leave us!

No, John, no!


You gotta clear off this land!

You k*lled my husband!


My sons!

My poor daughter!

We never did anything wrong!

You got till the end of the day!


[JESSE] Come on, boys! Yah!

Your lawyer, Mr. McSween,
told me about your ambitions.

Want to start a business
to rival The House.

Well, I realize that a
lot of what goes on here,

in Lincoln County, especially,
is rather up for grabs.

And, frankly, I plan to
grab every bit of land I can,

for as little as possible.

Can't fault you for that, Mr. Tunstall.

Please, call me John.

And, if I may,

I shall call you Billy.


That's all right by me.

The fact is, Billy, John is
prepared to pay us farmers fairly,

whatever we produce.

That's true.

I think Murphy is
exploiting his position here,

forcing the farmers into debt,

and then forcing them off their lands.

Now, I don't intend to do that.

But John and all of us
are aware that Murphy

isn't gonna let go of his
position without a fight.

He's got a lot of g*n.

I noticed your lawyer, McSween...

a very religious man.

He is.

He has his faith, and
he has his principles.

He's a very unusual man for around here.

What about you, John?

What are your principles?

"To thine own self be true.

And it must follow as night the day."

- [MEN] Hyah, hyah!
- "Thou cannot be false to any man."

[BAKER] Come on, come on!

It's from Shakespeare.


Come on, come on now!

Come on!


[MAN] Hyah! Hyah!

What are you doing on this land?

This is our land.

Oh, no, no.

Not anymore it's not.


- Whoo!


I would regard it as a
great honor if you would

consider leaving Murphy's
employment and joining mine.

I realize I'm asking you a great deal.

You must be working with good friends,

being very well
remunerated by The House,

and I doubt I can offer you as much.

On the other hand,

I think I can offer you
something that is perhaps more

important than money.

I want to run a legitimate business.

I'm not a crook, like Murphy.

Now, I know in certain places
you're wanted for m*rder,

and in those places, there's
a bounty on your head.

Even so,

I am willing and happy to take you on.

If you go straight, and you work hard,

both of which I believe
you're very capable of,

in due course, I will petition
the governor on your behalf.

A very big offer to
make, Mr. Tunstall...

especially for someone
you don't know from Adam.

I know.

I believe, and Charlie
here also believes,

that you are trustworthy...

and honest.

Whatever your reputation.

If I switch sides,
there'll be consequences.

I just needed to say what I've said.

This is a big undertaking.

I would really like
you to be a part of it.



Hey there.

How much for one of your melons?

It's all right. We ain't gonna hurt ya.

[BECKWITH] Come on. Toss one over here.

Olinger, give me that drink, man.

[BAKER] Here, here, here.

Oh, yeah.


[JESSE] Oh! Uh-oh.


Come on, boy, run. You
gotta go faster than that.

- He's running.
- Look at that.



[BECKWITH] Run, boy!




[DRIVER] Whoa.

This is cold-blooded m*rder.

I'll send someone out to
Sheriff Brady to report it.

We know exactly who's behind this.

No doubt about it.

Seems like Murphy's gotten desperate.

[TUNSTALL] You think Sheriff
Brady will do anything about this?

I can't say.

He's an honored w*r
veteran and a good sheriff,

all things considered.


But he's also had a long-time
friendship with Major Murphy.

I think that answers my question.


I'm so sorry, Mrs. Hudgens.

I will get their bodies back to town.

You and your daughter
can come over to my house

and stay with me until the
funerals if it suits you.

you, Mr. Tunstall.


What is it?

You all better come over
to Jose Chavez's farm.

More killings?

Afraid so.



[JESSE] Hey, Billy boy!

Hey, hey!

Missed all the fun today, Billy.

[BILLY] Yeah, what kind of fun?

Well, we did what Mr.
Murphy wanted us to do.

We drove those farmers
off their property.

- Billy!
- Hell, yeah, we did.

You k*ll any of them?

What do you think?

'Course we did.

Some of those f*ck fired back at us.

sh*t and k*lled Arly.

How many did you k*ll?

Oh, I don't know.

Now, why do you care about
those farmers so? Huh?

Are you gonna cry now? Is that it?

- Glad you had fun.

Oh, yeah, it was real fun, Billy.

It's what we get paid for.

- Whoo!

Bob Olinger.

Dirty, dirty bastard.

[MAN] What the hell you guys doing here?

What are you doing here?
What the hell you doing here?




[MAN] Howdy, Sheriff.




How's that arm of yours, Jim?

Pretty good. Thank you, Sheriff.

It's a shame when a woman
like that goes off the rails.

As Sheriff of Lincoln County,

I want to open this
inquiry into the deaths

of persons by
firearms in this county.

Who wants to speak to the
violators of these crimes?

Well, I do, Sheriff.

I'm a lawyer acting
for Mr. John Tunstall,

and we have already
registered that Major Murphy

has openly declared w*r on my client.

Sheriff, you don't have to listen

to this Santa Fe law-speak. All right?

We don't need lawyers in Lincoln County.

We're perfectly capable of sorting out

our difficulties all by ourselves.

Mr. Dolan, the law has to
be respected at all times.

No one can run roughshod over it.

Do you have any idea why
these people were k*lled?

No, sir.

These killings, they were
nothing to do with The House

or Mr. Murphy personally.

He was just as shocked as
everyone else to hear about them.

Major Murphy is an interested party.

It's obvious that he wanted
these farmers and their families

run off the land, one way or another.

They were random sh**t
by persons unknown.

Probably some criminal g*ng just
passing through Lincoln County.

There is indeed a criminal g*ng
operating inside Lincoln County,

and it's our contention that The
House pays them for their services.

You got any proof there, Mr. McSween?


- Not yet.
- [SCOFFS] Yeah.

Do you think you should get
Colonel Dudley up at the fort

- involved in this, Sheriff?
- No, I do not.

This is a civil matter, and
before I do anything else,

my deputies and I will make
inquiries to determine the facts.

Thank you for your time, gentlemen.

This meeting is concluded.


My good friend, Jose Chavez y Chavez...

they k*lled his sons.

He is so sad.

Está muy desesperado.

His whole family... gone.

I understand,

Señor Baca. It's a terrible
crime. Terrible crime.

We're friends, right?


I've always told you the truth, yes?


Men who k*lled Chavez y Chavez's sons

were hired by the
Englishman, John Tunstall.

Do you know who that is?

Sí, I know who he is,
but I never thought...

Now, he's trying to
drive me out of business.

Which is... It's gonna affect you.

Because you and me, we have
a business together, no?


You want to keep it that way, yes?


So we don't want any trouble
with any of your people.

No trouble.

So, what I want you to do is,
I want you to tell everyone

that those sh**t had
nothing to do with me,

they had everything to
do with the Englishman.

Will you do that for me?



I don't want any trouble.


We'll send flowers to the funeral.

Those poor boys.

Why do things have to be like
this these days, my old friend?



Things used to be so peaceful here.

This was a beautiful place.

And it'll be a beautiful place again.

Believe me, my friend.

Soon as we get rid of that Englishman.



[PADDY] Do you see those
stars up there, Billy?

You are just like one of those stars.

You can burn so bright.

Those are bright,

burning stars up there.

They reflect the light...

that's in you.


Just a minute.

Easy, boy.


- [MAN] Adios.
- Buenas noches.

Señoritadel Tobosco.

- _

Perdón, Señorita.



- Wait a minute.
- _


Who are you?

I'm Billy.

I just wanted to introduce myself.

Well, that is not a very good reason

to ambush someone in the street.

Do you have another motive?

I'd like to see you again.

- Why?
- Step away, friend.

You're annoying the Señorita.






Gracias, Señorita.

Did you imagine I had no idea
of what happens in this town?

Shame on you.

You may see me again.

If you wish.



We're meeting at McSween's tomorrow.

Are you with us?


[SIGHS] Mr. Tunstall. Gentlemen.

There is little doubt we are now as good

as at w*r with Major
Murphy and The House.

So far, in this commercial conflict,

the law has not been on our side.

I think we all know the reason for that.

Yes. The Rings.

Murphy has powerful
friends in important places,

but that doesn't mean
he isn't vulnerable.

His business is failing,
partly through our own efforts.

It's really a house of cards.

You take away a couple
of the bottom cards,

the whole house starts to fall.

We can take them to court
for their illegal activities.

The way they cheat the army
with their beef rations,

their tyrannical
attitude to their farmers.

I'm already preparing the papers,

but there's no point
going to court in Santa Fe.

The head of the Santa Fe Ring
is a man called Thomas Catron,

and he turns out to be a
good friend of Major Murphy.

Meanwhile, The House
is hiring more g*n.

I'm afraid that's true.

I've heard of the recruitment
of another six sharp-sh**t,

joining those already
in Murphy's employ.

This w*r is never going to
be won just in the courts.


The truth is, all our lives are at risk.

If we are to fight this w*r,

more blood will be spilled.

We'll hire more g*n ourselves.

But we'll need an
advantage to survive this.




Mr. Tunstall.

I'm ready to go to work.


[JESSE] Where you been, Billy?


Yeah. And where's that?


I came to tell you something.

I'm quitting Major Murphy's payroll.

I've accepted a job with
the Englishman, Tunstall.

I'm leaving today.



Well, you are a little
piece of sh*t, ain't you?


What'd I say? Hmm?

Billy, I'm your oldest friend.

We've ridden together a long time.

We had some good times,
we had some bad times,

but our friendship...

has always remained.

I can't believe that
you're gonna quit on me now.

It don't make any sense.

I'm sorry, Jesse.

This wasn't an easy decision to make.

I've made up my mind.


That you're a traitor and our enemy.

I just came here to tell you in person.

Some of us have been friends.

When this is all done,
we can be friends again.

Is that what you're hoping?

That we're gonna be friends? [LAUGHS]


Do you really think we're
just gonna let you leave?

- After what you've just done?
- Boys, boys.

We've all slept, starved,

fought with The Kid.

See, he's trusted himself amongst us.

He didn't sneak out.

He came right out and told us.

Let him go his way.

Our time will come.

Yeah. It will.

Yah! Yah, yah!



[BILLY] My family came
to America on the promise

of just and fair treatment for all.

I wanna believe that promise.
