Louise Grant is shocked one day when a man armed with a gun walks into her bosses office.

Henry has come to invite Mark to a banquet that is being thrown in his honor at the Lincoln. When Mark accepts the invitation, Henry tells Louise she cannot come along because it is a strictly men-only event. Louise accepts this but secretly believes they will not bar her alter-ego the Blonde Phantom from attending.
That night at the banquet hall, Blonde Phantom lurks outside the door as Henry Mason comes to the hall. Unseen by the Blonde Phantom, when Henry enters the hall he is taken hostage at gun point, as is Mark when he enters. Believing she has waited long enough for the guests to show up, the Blonde Phantom peeks inside and sees both Mark and Henry strapped to electric chairs by a bunch of hooded men. The men all unmask, revealing themselves to be criminals that Henry sent to jail over the course of his career. The crooks include Tonelli the murderer, Farrell the bank robber, Hank Weeds a kidnapper, Machine Gun Thompson, Manny Moop, and Foggy Wilson.
They put on a mock trial and find Henry "guilty" for sending them to prison. Before they can begin their execution, the Blonde Phantom rushes in and begins fighting off the crooks. However before she can stop them all, they tie her up in a lasso and force her to watch their execution. The Blonde Phantom is sat next to a machine gun which she hopes to use once she breaks free from the ropes. The crooks then put Henry in a hangman's noose, but before they can go further the Blonde Phantom breaks free and grabs the machine gun. However, when she shoots she finds that it is really a water gun.
Everyone is surprised when the crooks remove their masks revealing them to be not criminals, but Henry's various colleagues who were playing a prank. With the prank over with, Blonde Phantom presents to Henry Mason her gift to him: A silver gavel. The next morning Mark complains about a headache after the previous nights adventure.
