Local smuggler Barton (Gilbert Roland) baits her into a trap using her plane for his gun-smuggling racket and she ends up wrecked on another island. Thornton, as a stowaway on Barton's gun-smuggling plane, and Barnes, by water in a stolen speed boat, rush to her rescue.

The sheriff and his men capture Clark, but Mary Jane mounts a horse and gallops away, and throws a rock through the windows of each member of El Gato's band with a message reading: "Be prepared---We Ride Again. El Gato." And also a note into the sheriff's office warning him that El Gato will ride again unless Clark is released inside of 24 hours.
