While in the body of Pete, a circus helper, Deadman discovers that the Eagle is using his acrobatic talents by staging jewel heists from skyscraper offices. Unforunately, Deadman (in Pete's body) is discovered, and Eagel's gang chases him onto a Ferris wheel. Eagle and Deadman (still as Pete) have a deadly hand-to-hand fight that climaxes with Eagle throwing Pete from the top car. Deadman quickly enters Tiny's body, who is below, and uses it to catch Pete safely. Eagle and his gang are arrested by the police, who arrive just in time to save Tiny, Pete, Lorna, and other circus people from being shot to death by Eagle's henchmen. While talking with a policeman, Deadman (in Tiny's body) learns that Eagle staged another robbery on the West Coast on September 10th. Since that was the day he was shot, Deadman knows that Eagle cannot be his killer.

Synopsis for "Hide and Seek"
Deadman seeks to learn what has happened to the police detective assigned to his case. He discovers that the detective, Michael Riley, has been falsely accused of brutally beating a thief who had already surrendered to him, and has been kicked off the force. Deadman, learning the accusers were ex-boxer Peter Bones and a hook-handed man named "Roy Martin", suspects Martin of being the Hook and staging the frame-up to get Riley off his trail. Deadman enters Riley's body, confronts Bones, and learns that the ex-pugilist agreed to give false testimony along with "Martin" in exchange for money to buy feed for his pet pigeons, the only companions he has left. Deadman / Riley leaves to phone the police to pick up Bones and to apprehend the Hook, who is still living nearby. But in the interim, the Hook beats Bones to death with a crowbar and flees. A travel folder for Mexico found in the Hook's apartment indicates his destination. Riley is restored to his post as police detective, but Deadman has once again failed to find his killer.
