After a daring get away from Ivan Shark, Chuck goes with Patsy and Senor Perada to learn their secret. It’s one of the greatest curiosities in the world, Mexican jumping beans. Pablo Perada tells all about the strange beans, and a game to play with them.
Elsewhere across the ridge, Ivan Shark gives orders to his henchmen about his next attack. Shark isn’t happy at all to learn from Fang about Captain Midnight’s recent landing and escape. Though he has taken over the Perada hacienda, he still can’t find the treasure, and his heavy handed methods have no affect on Pablo’s daughter. Except to make her more resistent to his will.
