Frank Preston leaves jail to collect his stashed robbery money, but thugs are waiting to beat him up for the location of the loot. Steed intervenes and takes him to Keel, but the gang now assume that Keel knows the location and kidnap Carol to make him talk. Realising that the thugs are in league with Stella, his wife, Preston forces Keel to take him to the money. However, before Preston can enjoy it or the thugs can sieze it, Steed arrives with the police to arrest them all.
