Episode Recap

Big Jim Weston is now in jail, after causing trouble for Gene's Flying-A-Ranch Home of Gene Autry's Rangers. Big Jim has a letter sent to his only daughter Gerry Wentworth. She becomes a new tenant at the Flying A, and Gene promises to start a Rangerette troop. Gene, Pat, and the sheriff are attacked to keep them preoccupied during a prison break. Stan Richter and his lawyer, Martin Pickett plan more sabotage on Gene's ranch. This time, they set the barn on fire by a bow and arrow, and place the blame on Pat by leaving his corncob pipe as evidence. Gene and Champion save the animals from the barn, while Gerry sees a man sneaking into the school, and takes him down. The man tells Gene about Stan and Martin's plan, and Gene goes out to put a stop to it. Gene hides Gerry in the jail-house for safety, where she meets her father, Big Jim, and unwittingly frees him. After a gunfight, Gene and Pat round up the outlaws, and send them away for good. Big Jim is satisfied with the though that his daughter, Gerry will be in good hands with a cowboy like Gene Autry.
