Description: The outlaw entered the cuartel apparently over the roofs, and threatened to kill señor Licenciado Pina if he did not open the cell of the traitor Torres .Capitan Monastario having heard the noise tried to stop him but was locked in the cell through Zorro's trickery. In spite of a courageous attempt of Sergeant Garcia to stop the outlaw, he escaped with the  prisoner. The lancers attempted to follow the outlaw on horseback, but were cut short, because the saddles were sabotaged by the outlaw.

Shortly after the return of de la Vega.
