In yet another gigantic serial "cheat," the solution to chapter seven's "cliffhanger" consists of entirely different footage and instead of stumbling over a chair in his duel with Jason Burr (Fred Kohler), Don Loring, alias "The Eagle" (Robert Livingston), actually wins the fight and is able to make his escape with Doris Colton (Kay Hughes). Learning that Burr and Count Ivan Raspinoff (Robert Warwick) have signed a treaty that will make California a Russian colony under the leadership of the former, our hero manages to intercept the coach carrying Raspinoff and the all-important document. But as chapter eight nears its fiery conclusion, the coach careens out of control and crashes down a steep embankment (courtesy of stock footage from John Wayne's 1933 Sagebrush Trail).
