Captured, Jimmy Olsen is forced to tie up his gaucho friend at the hands of his kidnapper. With Jimmy also tied up, he could go unreported and unnoticed for days.
Back at the ranch, Shorty tries to lead Clark and Lois on the wrong trail. They suspect Alfredo could be the culprit of the kidnapping, as well as the earlier cave in that had them trapped. Does Graham suspect who is actually at fault?
A note is found from the kidnapper, warning Clark to stay away for 2 days. Will he go along, or will he and Lois take the matter into their own hands for a search party? Are Jimmy and Alfredo as helpless as Shorty expected? They may find themselves in more pressing trouble.
