Twenty-five years after he first rode to avenge evil, Zorro has begun to slow down. Unwilling to abandon his crusade for justice, he now tries to outwit his foes rather than outfight them. However, when Brother Napa is arrested for selling wine before its time and is unjustly jailed, Zorro again takes up his sword to duel with the pueblo’s evil commandante.

Directed by Peter Baldwin.

A Fistful of Pesos

Commandante Pico tries a new tactic to end Zorro’s influence over the pueblo when he disguises himself in the characteristic black mask and begins robbing the peons.

Wash Day

April 27, 1983

When Bernardo tries to wash his costume, a gust of wind blows the clothes into the picnic lunch of Commandante Pico. The soldier arrests Bernardo and takes him to jail, hoping to prove that Don Diego is the masked rider. He sends for Diego and accuses him, but when Diego is forced to wear the costume, it was shrunk and no longer fits him. Pico tortures Bernardo to learn Zorro’s identity and the faithful servant confesses that he is the masked rider in the hope of saving Diego.

Directed by Peter Baldwin.

Episode 005

The Butcher of Barcelona

May 04, 1983

Commandante Pico receives unwelcome news that a life-long rival, El Excellente, is due to arrive for an inspection of the pueblo. He is unaware that Zorro will also be unhappy about the visit, for El Excellente is guarded by Capitan Jorge Mendez, who hates the masked rider and has nearly captured him on several occasions. Diego fears that Mendez, a cruel and harsh man known as the “Butcher of Barcelona”, will be named to run the pueblo.

Directed by Gabrielle Beaumont.
