Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
In chapter two of Republic's The Painted Stallion, United States envoy Clark Stuart manages to roll out of the way of the attacking Comanches. The mysterious girl rider (Julia Thayer), meanwhile, saves the wagon train when one of her whistling arrows kills the Comanche chief (Chief Big Tree). As the train continues its journey, Stuart is ambushed by the nasty Bull Smith (Charles King), but is once again saved by the Rider's whistling arrows. Bad weather makes the crossing of a raging river a difficult task that becomes even more so when one of Smith's men, Macklin (Maston Williams), manages to stow away in Elmer's (Lou Fulton) prairie schooner. Stuart, who has taken over the reigns from the stuttering hillbilly, is knocked unconscious and as episode two reaches its conclusion, the wagon slowly sinks.
