Storyline

When Diego's fencing teacher at Madrid university, Sir Edmond Kendall, arrives by stagecoach in Los Angeles and refuses as British knight to pay the travelers tax, he fights the lancers and is appalled Diego fakes being unable to win, rather paying for him. The alcalde orders Mendoza to finds out about him; don Alejandro knows him since 30 years, but releases nothing useful. At the hacienda, sir Edmund and Diego, who were training together, are shot at by two men; he recognizes them as Sanchez and Figueroa, kills one and sneers Diego shouldn't have spared the other as they want Edmund dead: they are bounty-hunters and the price on his head is because of an unjust association with revolutionaries among his students. The other bounty-hunter informs the alcalde of a royal 5,000 pesos reward, so the alcalde sets a trap and shoots the Britton badly, but he manages to flee into the mission church, where don Alejandro can claim sanctuary for him; it's surrounded, with Diego also inside, but ...

Is This Still the Same Series?
12 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode the action and fighting were better. The acting was better. Everything was better than the series had offered prior to this episode.

They could have played it as trying to sneak into the church while the Alcalde's forces were held at bay by sanctuary, as did the Disney Zorro episode "Zorro Rides to the Mission". But that was only a small part of this episode.

They could have played it as "oh no, this may spill the beans on Diego's secret identity", but that was only a small part of the episode.

As in Zorro tradition, the guy who finds out Zorro's true identity dies in the end.

The fight near the end as Zorro gets a doctor into the church to Sir Edmond is not bad. The swash was buckling. The element of Sir Edmond watching the face realizing Zorro is Diego is very nice: the look on Edmond's face tells it all. The camera work as Sir Edmund dies, seeing Don Diego's pupils focus, framing one eye as he speaks to his mentor, is excellent.

The second season was going well with "The Wizard" and then this.
