Zorro - Revenge

Picking up just a few minutes after the previous episode ended with Diego's (Miguel Bernardeau) secret exposed and him at the mercy of Ramirez, events take an unexpected shift with the arrival of Nah-Lin (Dalia Xiuhcoatl) and her men brutally killing anyone left alive including Ramirez (thus keeping Diego's secret safe once more). Although Nah-Lin does untie Diego, she also stabs him and leave him to bleed out in the carnage, allowing him to die and her to assume the mantle of Zorro.

Mei's (Chacha Huang) guilt over what she has caused leads her to remove Diego from the scene and return him home for some much needed medical attention. With Diego out of action, Nah-Lin begins a series of vicious attacks against the soldiers which the Governor (Rodolfo Sancho) returns in kind dangerously escalating the situation between the soldiers and the Native American population. A wounded Diego is able to save Lolita (Renata Notni) from one of these attacks, leading her to learn of his injury but not exactly how he came by it, further complicating her feelings.

Once recovered, and this is where the episode plays a little loose with time not getting specific on just how long he took to recover, Diego shows up to challenge Nah-Lin to a duel to determine the one true Zorro. Although this may have settled matters, the arrival of Monasterio (Emiliano Zurita) and his men, who discover the truth of two Zorros, prematurely ends the fight leaving it to be settled another day. However, Monasterio doesn't go home empty handed as he as the soldiers are able to capture some of Nah-Lin's men leading to yet another opportunity for the Governor to further show his wicked nature to Monasterio.
