Synopsis for "City Lights, Prairie Justice Part IV of IV"
Vigilante learns from one of Siegel's goons that Bugsy Siegel has returned to Hollywood and that soon he's to be the target of an asassination by the Dummy who had been hired by Meyer Lansky. Vigilante debates whether he should sit back and let the Dummy solve his problem for him or whether he should intervene and let the law judge Siegel. He ultimately decides to intervene and rides the Vig-Cycle to Hollywood arriving just as the Dummy and his henchmen arrive. Bugsy is aided to safety by George Raft and a security guard while Vigilante takes down the rest of Dummy's henchmen and goes after the Dummy. The Dummy tries to flee within a studio by climbing onto the catwalk but Vigilante catches and punches him. Dummy falls off the catwalk and lands on a lit spotlight killing him.
Later, a studio executive offers to give a large donation to the charity of Vigilante's choice if Vigilante promises not to ever say a word of what just happened fearing the negative publicity might harm the studio's image. Vigilante agrees.
As he is leaving, George Raft appears and tells Vigilante that Siegel wants to meet with him.
Vigilante goes to Bugsy's home where Bugsy asks Vigilante why he has a vendetta against him. Vigilante tells Bugsy about Stuff and Stacey (without naming names). Bugsy doesn't remember them. He then tells Vigilante that he wants Vigilante to kill him. He knows that his former business parterns will not stop until he is dead and he does not want to be looking over his shoulder every day until they succeed. He also would prefer to be killed by someone he knows is fearless. Bugsy gives Vigilante an unmarked rifle so it cannot be traced back to him.
Vigilante decides that he'd rather Siegel spend his days in fear and he leaves. Bugsy follows him taunting him saying he does remember Stuff and how he enjoyed hurting and killing him. Bugsy tosses the rifle outside and Vigilante picks it up. Bugsy says "Thank you," Vigilante shoots him and says, "You're welcome."
Later at home, Greg Saunders records his thoughts into his dictaphone reflecting on how he doesn't feel the elation he thought he would after two years of chasing Bugsy and reflecting on the kind of man Bugsy was. He mentions that the casino area of Las Vegas is growing and he wonders if Siegel will be remembered for his part of it.
