Zorro [Don Diego de la Vega]; Tornado; Bernardo; Sergeant Demetrio Lopez Garcia; Raquel Toledano (villain, Commandante's wife, reforms); Espinoza (villain); Salvador Quintana (villain, inn keeper); Enrique Fuentes (villain, inn keeper)
Synopsis
Garcia discovers that all the gunpowder in the cuartel has disappeared and been replaced with charcoal (a plot that will make Los Angeles indefensible). He informs Diego of this, then questions people at the cuartel, including Raquel Toledano, agent of the Eagle. Zorro intervenes and learns from Raquel that Garcia has been lured into the countryside by Fuentes and Quintana in order to kill him. Zorro rescues him, but the inn keepers and Espinoza hatch another plot to do away with the acting Commandante, and finally Zorro stops them for good, Raquel then joining her husband to return to Spain.
