Rita actually saves Zorro this time, and the badguy meets a rather gruesome death by electrocution. The other bad guys decide to pull the old "Zorro is the villain" trick when a federal marshal is coming to town. Suddenly the people turn against Zorro, so the trick works. That's the problem with easily made outfits, everyone can be a masked vigilante.

Unfortunately it backfires on him because he left Kilgore in an easily escapable trap. I think everyone could have seen that coming. Good thing his sidekick Moccosin is around... Next: Money Lure
