There is no Next Episode of Badlands, Texas planned.
A Terlingua, Texas resident is on trial for the murder of a well-known fellow resident. Remaining evidence is presented and closing arguments are made before the jury deliberates on a final verdict: innocent, murder or man slaughter. When the verdict is announced, not all residents find the closure they were hoping for.
The jury in the murder trial returns a not guilty verdict and Terlingua residents are in shock and anger—demanding to know why the accused wasn't at least charged with manslaughter.
Two anonymous jurors divulge the confusion and animosity that existed in the jury deliberation room.
No one believes the bar or the town of Terlingua will ever be the same.
