Synopsis
The King's men kill Sphinx with a two-ton weight, and Crewy Lou is caught trying to kill the King. Tracy uncovers proof that the King leads organized crime, but Crewy Lou's brother Brainerd breaks her loose and takes her prisoner himself. He tries to kill her as a disgrace to the family name, but she kills him and escapes from a small boat in the wilderness. While Tracy and Junior help recover the boat, Crewy Lou steals Tracy's car, not realizing Bonnie Braids is asleep in the back. When the car is no more use, Crewy Lou abandons Bonnie Braids in the wilderness.
