The Arrival
In 1788, Alejandro's wife Elena gave birth in Madrid to two boys, Diego and one who was taken away by nurse Inez. Years later, royal emissary Don Gilberto Resendo chooses a ruthless way to assert absolute authority beyond the call of collecting a 10,000 pesos special tax for the Spanish war effort against France: the alcalde is sentenced to death merely for 'incompetence' because the emissary's royal guards easily overpower the logically surprised lancers garrison; Diego is arrested for reporting a friend from the front contradicts in a letter the emissary's war ...

Death & Taxes
Royal emissary Gilberto Risendo first seizes the mission church properties, then lays the seed for a popular outcry he happily responds to: instead confiscate the haciendas of wealthy caballeros who enjoy legal tax exemptions, such as on account of beef supply to the garrison.

Duelling Zorro during the stallion's daring rescue, Gilberto falls from a roof, apparently to his death....

The Discovery
In this series finale, Gilberto Risendo's mother Ynez nurses him back to health while repeating her story he was born as Alejandro's son before Diego but rejected because of a deformation. Risendo's first act after 'resurrection' is to tell alcalde and sergeant they'll be executed the next morning, by fire-squad together or far crueler if either tries to flee. Next he sets an obvious trap for Zorro, a 'truce' and meeting in devil's canyon, where he uses dynamite to bury the fox, only Toronado digs him out from the ruble by hoof. At the hacienda, Gilberto knocks down ...
