Still running from the law, Sleet is injured by a sheet of falling glass and takes refuge with an older lady whose husband had been a taxidermist.

Escaping the gorilla with help from Tracy and Sam, Sleet jumps to a water tower roof, but the wooden roof is rotten. Sleet gets stuck in the water tower roof, and Sam and Tracy catch her and take her to jail.
