"The Girl" opens with Seneca Chief Kubaka (John Vernon, fourth of eight) joining forces with Iroquois Chief Oganu (Ed Holmes, second of four) to make war on the white man through long dead chief Pontiac (William Walsh, fourth of nine). Hawkeye and Chingachgook visit Col. Sanford (Peter Humphreys, first of five) and agree to lead troops back from a nearby fort, only to be greeted by his son Jamie (Bobby Barringer, last of two) and new governess Jane Parrish (Pegeen Rose). Hawkeye recognizes Jane from past experiences, all bad, but she promises to turn over a new leaf if he keeps silent. Unfortunately, both he and Chingachgook get waylaid by the Iroquois as evidence that she is responsible for the entire scheme to raise an imposter of Pontiac back from the dead to lead an attack with guns and powder that Hawkeye will take them to. It is here that she falls victim to her own lying tongue, sealing the fate of Kubaka in the process. For the first (but not the last) time, John Vernon is cast as an Indian chief, and a villainous one.
