The Lone Ranger gets word Silky Carter has been released from Jail. The Ranger suspects he will head for Thunder Mountain to retrieve money from previous robberies.

The Ranger encounters Doc Hagen, a supposed spider expert who quickly reveals his lack of knowledge about spiders. The Ranger thinks he is looking for Silky Carter's stash. He decides to interview the other passenger on the coach, Mrs. Nelson. The Ranger discovers the woman is a disguised US Marshall trying to track Silky. They compare notes and decide to join forces. We discover Mrs. Nelson is not a disguised marshal but Silky himself. Tonto comes across two henchmen burying the man shot earlier from the coach.
