On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

Plot Overview

Grace Turner double crosses the Kid when he is in Mexico on business and gets the $10,000 reward for his capture.

However, she regrets her action as she finds that she has fallen in love with the Kid and later breaks him out of prison. This has the unfortunate effect of making it look as though Heyes and Curry were involved in collecting their own reward money.

Heyes sets up an elaborate 'sting' with Soapy Saunders called The Big Store to get the money back from Grace and thus to clear his and the Kid's names.
