Synopsis for Captain Jim of the Texas Rangers: "The Train Robbery, Part 20"
The paper that Captain Jim hands to Bob is a note from a buyer, to the cattle rustlers. It mentions an order of 80 cattle with the 7L, of which neither of them have heard before. If they wanted to catch the gang, Bob and Jim knew they'd have to pick up the trail.
Meanwhile, the rustlers halt for a quick meal. They decide to keep one man on lookout for Captain Jim, while the rest of them ride on to the exchange point. Rusty volunteers.
Jim, Bob, and the kids travel up the rocky trail, when a gunshot is heard, and Bob's hat is shot off his head. From behind a boulder, Rusty had been watching them approach. He quickly hops back on his horse and rides away while Jim gets everybody to cover. Rusty catches up to his group and tells them that they are being followed. The rustlers start planning a death trap to get rid of Jim and the others once and for all.

Synopsis for "Golden Dragon, Episode 15"
Ian's wild punch lands on the Mongolian leader's jaw, but only stuns him. So to prevent the large man from crying out, Ian attempts to put him in a choke hold. His opponent grabs him and begins to force his upper body backwards until his back is about to break in two! In a last desperate act, Ian uses an old combat technique to flip the man over his head. Pan Chi-Lou runs up with a rifle and holds it to the Mongolian leader's head, telling him he'll shoot if he moves.
The guards started to slowly wake up from the noise brought on by the scuffle. Ian and Pan Chi-Lou take the large Mongolian leader back to the camels where Doris is waiting. A shout from behind lets them know that the rest of the camp is about to come after them. With the leader slumped over Pan's camel, Ian sends him and Doris on ahead while he fires a few shots into the advancing guard. He then joins the others after a temporary lull in the attack. The Mongolians are unwilling to fire as long as there is a risk of their leader being hit.
Back at the monastery, a shadow looms as a figure stands against the moonlight, giving orders to a group of men.

One day, while the young members of the Junior Federal Men Club are having a meeting, one of the boys looks out the window, through his binoculars, and he witnesses a bank robbery in progress. He calls the other club members over to see. Sure enough, men with guns were holding up the bank tellers, demanding the money. So, after phoning the police, the boys run out to the street to put their plan of stalling the criminals in action. They split up, and while one team works on shredding the tires on the getaway car, the other sets up a trip wire across the bank's exit. The robbers fall over the trap on their way out, but are still able to stumble into their car and speed off. What they don't know is that one of the boys is clutching onto the spare tire at the back.
The tires of the car soon blow out, bringing it to a halt. The robbers attempt to flee on foot, but the kid grabs a machine gun that they forgot about in the backseat and points it their way, yelling at them to 'Freeze!'. The cops catch up to the criminals and arrest them. The boy later explains that the gun wasn't even loaded!
Upon hearing their story, Steve Carson congratulates the boys on a job well done.

Appearing in She: "Episode 14"
- Leo Vincey
- Horace Holly
Synopsis for She: "Episode 14"
Leo, Horace, and Job are led by the priestess, She, across narrow rocky ledges and a darkened cavern. They come across a narrowing rocky spur coming out of the mountain. The fierce wind forces the three men to get down on their hands and knees and crawl. However, She doesn't even seem to be affected by the wind.
They are told to wait there until the daylight pierces through the dark. And very soon after those words are spoken, does the sun shine brightly on the cliff, showing the way to another jutting rock face directly opposite them. They would need to create a bridge using the plank they had been ordered to take with them. But they must hurry, She warns, before the light fades out.
Leo and Horace had crossed the plank safely with little effort. But Job was not too sure he would do as well. Horace throws encouraging words at Job, until finally, he is able to muster his inner courage and slowly cross. As darkness quickly envelops them all, Job loses his grip on the makeshift plank-bridge, and would have surely fallen had Leo not been there to grab hold of his arm.
The journey continues to a gaping hole in the ground. She takes hold of Horace and playfully pushes him into the dark hole. Thankfully, the drop is a short one, and Leo and Job follow after. The three of them are surrounded by pitch-black, and yet they know something is there.

The Chinese are beaten back with the flying fists of authority. Furious, Sin Fu orders a complete fall-back, saving his remaining men from an utter defeat. Being sure to take the girl with them, they disappear down a tunnel, with a door slamming shut after they have passed. Carey tries in vain to open the door, but he feels his strength waning.

Synopsis for Captain Quick: "Episode Eighteen"
The Spanish Armada is sighted by a small fishing boat. With greater speed than the ships can muster, the boat turns around and returns to Port Royal to report. When Kendal Quick hears of the impending attack, he rushes to the quay. The other captains are told to take their ships and wait, hidden inside the Port, while Quick takes the Bonnie Bess, and one other English ship, out to meet the Spanish fleet in combat.
The Spaniards, believing that the English port has only two ships to defend it, prepare their cannons for an easy victory. Seeing that they took the bait, Captain Quick orders the Bonnie Bess and the other English ship to turn around and lead the Spanish Armada back into Port Royal. As soon as the last Spanish ship enters the port, Quick gives the signal. The flag on top of the fort is raised. From all sides comes the attack! The other English ships begin firing upon the Spanish, while from atop the rocky ledge, cannon fire from the fort hits the fleet like hail. The Spanish have fallen into a trap! They valiantly fight back against hopeless odds. One of the ships manages to shoot the flagpole off the top of the fort.
All the while, Marjorie had been watching the battle from the safety of the dungeons, when she sees the flag get shot off. She springs into action then, and races over to the fort and up its stairs. At the top, she resets the flag, but gets shot down by a Spanish bullet in the process. Quick had seen it all from the Bonnie Bess, but he fights on, though his heart grows very heavy with the thought of Marjorie falling to her death.
Appearing in Nadir, Master of Magic: "Pearl of the Bleeding Heart, Part 4"

Synopsis for Nadir, Master of Magic: "Pearl of the Bleeding Heart, Part 4"
A few hours before Nadir was thrown into the hidden room, his faithful servant, Arcot, had been following him in his own car. After an hour of waiting outside the old brownstone house with still no sign of his master, Arcot decides to investigate. When he gets inside, Arcot hears the shots, fired by Henri, and follows the sound to the cellar below. The darkness provides little visibility, but he does stumble upon the fleeing Job. The two men exchange gunshots, but neither hits their mark. Job escapes through a narrow window to the street above, and by the time Arcot gets there, he is long gone.
Suspecting that Nadir is still somewhere in the house, Arcot searches around calling his master's name. As he gets back to the cellar, he hears a muffled tapping on the wall. Could it be a secret room? Unsuccessful at triggering the opening, Arcot finds a pick-axe and breaks down the wall instead! His master sits, bound and gagged on the other side.
Nadir explains the current situation to his servant, and both agree to trail Job and get the pearl back. Luckily, Job was bleeding when he fled, so there were drops of blood on the ground that they could follow. Arcot concludes that Job had taken a cab where the blood trail ends. Nadir decides to use another method of discovering his whereabouts. Going back into the house, he grabs Job's hairbrush and prepares a mystical incantation known to his people in the Far East.

Synopsis for Steve Conrad Adventurer : "The Revenge of Devachan, Part 8"
While Steve and the Apollon deal with the anger of the Bogoona tribe, deep in the swampland the Devachan carries Myra's unconscious form in a stolen canoe. They are being followed by the alligator-men, savages riding alligators through the thick marsh. They had recognized his mode of transport as a Bogoona canoe, and slowly they begin to surround him. Devachan tries to lie that the canoe was his, but they don't buy it. One of the savages notices Myra lying in the canoe's bottom. She would make a fine gift for their leader, King Olam.
There is a cave at the end of a winding stream where the alligator-men call home. This is where Myra suddenly finds herself upon awakening from the Devachan's trance. She is then taken to the chamber of King Olam, who is pleased at the sight of her beauty. So much so, that he has arrangements made to be wed with her as his Queen. Myra can only hope that Steve finds her soon. It is during the ceremony that her wish is answered, for as the final vows are made, Steve aims from high in a tree with his crudely made bow. Two arrows strike Olam in his arms, rendering them useless. But oddly, after Steve jumps down and attempts to take Myra by the hand, she turns on him and orders the natives to arrest him for harming the king!
