Episode Recap

There's a letter for Gomez from Camplona, Spain - an old family friend, Don Xavier Francisco de la Mancha Molinas is coming to visit. Don Xavier's daughter, Consuela, is getting married and has assumed it's to Gomez. They arrive with her Duenna, and Morticia catches onto the problem. She thinks Gomez is two-timing her or building up a harem. She goes to Itt for advice and he suggests using psychology. Gomez hires flamenco dancer Señor Cardona to entertain his guests, and the dancer and Consuela fall for one another. Gomez is still oblivious of everything until Don Xavier announces that he is betrothed to Consuela. Gomez naturally refuses to marry her. Don Xavier is insulted and challenges Gomez to a duel. During the fight, Thing prevents Don Xavier from running Gomez through, and Gomez accidentally brings the chandelier down on Cardona. Consuela is upset and announces that she's going to marry the dancer. Everything is resolved and everyone is happy once more.
