Synopsis for Captain Quick: "Episode Eight"
After escaping the Spaniards, Kendal Quick decides to rescue Marjorie's father personally, and to this end he has enlisted his old friend Pierre Dufoe. Dufoe shaves off Quick's mustache and alters his own appearance, then they work their way thru Cadiz, on foot, searching jails and dungeons and prisons, and asking about Lord Barlow. All around them was a reign of terror, and of horror, as hapless victims were carted away for torture, or burned at the stake. Pierre seeks out an informant, a prison guard, and extorts some truth from him: the Englishman Lord Barlow is no prisoner of the Inquisition at all, rather he is being held in the dungeon below the Governor's palace. As Quick knows, Governor Don Miguel Cordoza is the father of the late Don Pedro, whom Quick shot dead earlier. And ironically, that very evening, Marjorie Barlow and her new fiance Captain Rodriguez were enjoying the Governor's hospitality at a splendid banquet.
Their next step, explains Quick, is to join Cordoza's mercenary army. Dufoe joins under his own name but Quick adopts the alias 'Padraic O'Hara'.
