The haunting legend of the Mad Monk at mission!!!
31 December 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

This episode had a humor oriented, forgive all action, after his first defeat to Zorro, Monastario implied a smart plan, he spreads that the Mission is about to be attacks by the Indians, such event demands that the Army took place, for security of the whole mission, Diego knows that has to fight with the brains, instead with the Zorro's sword, then brings an old Latin manuscript which has a legend of the mad Monk who was killed by the Indians in the past, Don Diego sensibly firstly the "courageous" Garcia, re-telling all legend in smallest details, one the most creative sequence ever made in the series, the night falls and strange things starts to happen, the bell rings at midnight, a Ghost appears at cemetery, all brave soldiers leaves the place and running away, the final ending the Ghost dropped a flower vase at Monastario's head, funniest episode!!
