Synopsis for Captain Jim of the Texas Rangers: "The Train Robbery, Part 22"
Continued from Part 21.
Jess tries his best to defend himself as Rusty beats him, but he soon falls unconscious. Rusty lifts him up and places him across the horse's back. Mounting his own horse, he grabs hold of both the reins and gallops off into the canyon, towards the rustlers' hideout. They arrive outside of a shack covered in leaves. Rusty drags Jess inside, where the other members of the rustling gang are waiting. After tying Jess to a post, the gang goes back outside to discuss what they should do with him. Rusty sends one of the men, Spike, out to the lookout point he had just left, to watch for Captain Jim and the others. Just as Spike reaches the high point of the cliff, he spots Captain Jim, Bob, and the kids. And before he is able to completely duck out of sight, they notice him, too. Jim and Bob start to realize that they may be heading into a trap, but they continue onward.
Back in the shack, Jess starts to come around. He struggles against the rope binding him, but fails to get his hands free. But then he notices a broken bottle sitting on a table next to the post, so he starts using the broken shards of glass to cut through the bindings. He is almost free when Rusty bursts back in through the door. Jess goes limp, pretending he is still out. Rusty, believing that Jess is simply playing possum, starts to walk over to give him a swift kick. Just then, however, Spike rushes over behind Rusty and tells him that Captain Jim and Bob are headed their way! Rusty goes outside with Spike, and announces that they are going to go into the canyon and ambush the two lawmen with gunshots! Jess overhears all this, and as soon as the rustlers are gone, he cuts through the remaining strand of rope. First he tries to escape through the front door. Locked! Then, while he's looking around for another exit, Jess spots a ray of sunlight from a narrow window bouncing a reflection off a small mirror. This gives him an idea. If he can angle the reflected light out onto the walls of the canyon, he might be able to warn Jim and Bob of the ambush before it's too late!

- Ken Cockerhill
- Doris Whipple

- Petrov (Final appearance)
Synopsis for "Golden Dragon, Episode 17"
Continued from Episode 16.
Reilly is speaking in the watch-tower with Cockerhill, who thinks they should go after the gang of Mongols that took Ian and Doris. Reilly knows this would be a suicide move, convinced that the Mongols are trying to make the caravan go where they want them. But Cockerhill decides to go off anyway, and let anyone who wants to help come with him, or else stay behind with Reilly. Soon, all who are left in the watchtower are Reilly, Murphy, Walker and Petrov the Cossack.
Hours pass. The four men take turns on watch all through the night. Then, Murphy suddenly calls Reilly back into the tower. Outside the monastery gates are hundreds of armed Mongolians, waiting only for their cue to strike. Reilly curses his luck that the caravan had to leave with Cockerhill at such a time. With only the four of them, they are vastly outnumbered. But Reilly doesn't plan on surrendering. He orders Murphy and Petrov to take guarding positions in the left tower, and Walker to take the right, while he stays in the watchtower. Strangely, the Mongolians do not seem to want to fight. Instead they set up camp outside the walls and do nothing. This odd behavior continues through that night and into the next. What are they planning to do, exactly?

During a visit with the local police precinct, Steve is invited to come along for a call. They go to the home of a man claiming that a valuable stamp has been stolen from his collection. Steve thinks he recognizes the man, and once they're back at the precinct, he puts in a request to Federal Headquarters for more details. The information that comes back reveals that the stamp collector is Sammy Drake, an ex-con man. He is more than likely up to something, but for now there's nothing they can do since he's the victim.
Contacting a friend of his who is an avid stamp collector for advice, he's told that there are many folks who would buy a valuable stamp for a high price. Steve starts searching for other collectors in the local area. He discovers five, and drives to each address to search their homes. He hits the mark when he locates the stolen stamp... at all five addresses!
The next day, Steve's friend calls to tell him that he was approached by a man trying to sell him the stolen stamp. The man said he would come back tonight, so Steve decides to disguise himself and take his friend's place. Sure enough, a bearded stranger shows up to sell the stamp at fifty thousand dollars. Steve suddenly steps forward and pulls the beard off the man's face. It's Drake! He's been selling forgeries of a valued stamp to unsuspecting collectors for a large profit. Drake pulls a gun on Steve, but the cops bust in the door behind him after hearing his confession. Sammy Drake is arrested, and Steve heads back home.

But just as their strength is about to leave them, one of the tribesmen spots them crawling out of a cave and quickly rushes back to tell Billali. It is the tribe that saves them from certain death.
After a long sleep, Horace awakens to see Billali watching over him. Billali asks him what has become of She and Job, Horace mournfully replies that both are dead.

Horace asks Billali for help in leaving the country.

Luck comes his way, as a tugboat is seen off on the horizon. The crewmen see Nadir floating in the water, and toss him a lifeline. The boat takes him back to shore, and after thanking the captain, Nadir heads to a phone and calls his servant, Arcot, for a fresh change of clothes.
They meet at the airport, where their private plane is readied for them. With Arcot at the controls, the plane lifts off and flies over the sea in search of Job. After changing out of the wet clothes, Nadir starts looking out the window for the Mary Lou. Hours pass without a trace, and Arcot lets Nadir take the controls while he catches some sleep. A peek at the barometer tells of a storm fast approaching their position. The plane is soon stuck in the middle of a torrential rain, and the controls aren't responding!
