Returning to their hotel, Clark, Jimmy, and their new friend and Shakespearean actor Mycroft Bittersweet continue their search for the missing Lois Lane. Instead, they find the count, but what does he have in common with the man in the red fez? We learn about threats he has had, and mysterious notes he has received.
Clark is convinced that the countess is in danger of being held for ransom. She also seems to be a double for Lois Lane, which could put her in danger as well.
As the count calls the police, Clark begins to think the countess may already be kidnapped. What about the unconscious Lois back in his room? She’ll be safe with their new friend Mycroft… right?
