Synopsis for Sandra of the Secret Service: "The Gavonian Affair, Part 10"
Continued from Part 9.
Sandra leaves the castle to keep her midnight rendezvous with Count de Wex, at the ominous Black Tower of Gavonia. She is unaware of a sinister figure following her, or of a second robed and hooded figure stalking the first one. In the castle park, the two shadowy figures clash, with swords, and the second one vanquishes the first. This draws Sandra's attention, enabling three more robed, hooded men to sneak up and seize her. Sandra is brought to a well-lit secret council chamber. At a long table, six hooded figures are seated, and off to one side an executioner leans on a big axe.
