This episode picked up where the other let off. The one who led the rangers into an ambush is fighting the Lone Ranger on a cliff. The Lone Ranger meets his beautiful, white horse, Silver. He also decides to use silver bullets.

The fighting is pretty darn cheesy. I can't help but to laugh at fake punching going on. We gave to remember, though, that this is 1949. There are probably not many stunt doubles around who are trained enough to make the fighting look more real.
