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 Alejandro, ties up Felipe and duels with the old man, inflicting wounds. When he's about to strike for the kill, Diego steps in unmasked; Gilberto realizes from arm wound and explosives smell he's Zorro, but is still defeated fencing. His mother Ynez tells her story, while Alejandro reposts she was just a hired, jealously infertile midwife, Gilberto draws a hidden pistol at his junior brother, but is killed before he can ...

Sergeant Jaime Mendoza: I prefer a quick bullet through the heart than to be boiled in oil like a beef empanada.
Alcalde Ignacio de Soto: More like a chicken empanada, eh, Sergeant?
Don Alejandro de la Vega: That's not nice, Alcalde. I like the way Sergeant Mendoza is philosophizing about this whole thing.

Zorro's Secret = Death
29 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

This review is for the final four episodes of the 1990's Zorro.

If the whole series had been like these last four episodes, there's no doubt the series would have gone on for more seasons.

These episodes borrow heavily from Disney's Zorro: The multi-episode arc, a Spanish official taking over the de La Vega hacienda, the top assistant killed at the hacienda, the deadly fight on the roof top. The writers did a good job with these elements.

As always, when someone finds out Zorro's secret identity, that someone dies. This time it's Alcalde De Soto shooting Diego's brother. De Soto at first appears to have done it for his own selfish reasons: but when he apologizes for killing Don Alejandro's son and talks about confessing to the priest, De Soto achieves some measure of redemption.

The fight between Diego and Don Gilberto is spectacular.

There is a pure swash buckling scene in the first of the four episodes. Don Gilberto's top soldier is about to fight Zorro. DG brags that the guy has killed many French men in battle. Zorro says (paraphrasing) "Good thing I'm not French". Then he begins the fight.

In the end Diego seems about to reveal that he's Zorro, but instead he says he is adopting Fillipe. But the episode and series end with Diego taking Don Alejandro aside: it freezes frame just as it seems Diego is about to reveal his identity as Zorro.

These four episodes were well done.
