Aided by his friend Horace, he manages to avoid ambushes by those who have an interest in not letting him find out the truth. In the tomb of Santana he finds clues evident that the bandit is still alive.

Johnny manages to put in conflict the uncle and the bandit telling Santana the existence of $300,000 which has disappeared. However Johnny is held captive, tied to a cross, while Santana storms the home of Claude. Johnny's mother, who now understands and asks Claude for an explanation but is mortally wounded; However, she finds the strength to drag herself to the place where Johnny is held and with the help of Horace, frees him, and then dies. The two friends roam the country and kill his uncle Claudius and his henchmen.
