Synopsis for "Blood in the Plains!"
Somewhere in Arizona, two masked men meet with a man named Fuller to sign a deal to hunt for buffalo even though it's against local laws and would not be tolerated by the local Crow tribe. Fuller and his men begin hunting the buffalo and when some braves from the Crow tribe confront them about their hunting, Fuller and his men kill them and leave.
Later that day the Gunhawk rides through the area and comes across the dead Crow braves. He begins examining the area and finds evidence that they were killed by white men who then fled the area. Before Gunhawk can investigate things further he is confronted by a party of Crows who initially accuse him of killing their warriors. He convinces them that he did not kill the braves by pointing out the evidence but the leader of the Crows orders him taken prisoner anyway, as Gunhawk has not convinced them that he is not involved with the murderers.
Red is tossed into a teepee at the Crow village to await execution, but one of the Crows believe that Red is not a murderer and secretly frees him. With the Crows about to go to war against the white settlers in a nearby town, the Gunhawk rides into town and warns the sheriff and asks for help capturing the real killers. Spotting two men riding into town, Red recognizes the hoof marks being made by one of the horses. They follow them and catch the two men in an attempt to betray Fuller. Fuller is gunned down in the cross fire and his two co-conspirators are captured and are sentenced to hang for their crimes.

He explains that he is waiting for the Kansas Express because his employer Bill Random from the Square R is expecting his niece, Kitty Random, to arrive on the coach. When she arrives, Saddlesoap becomes tongue tied and is incredible clumsy around her, earning her ire as she berates him for being a western savage with no eastern sensibilities. She refuses to accept Saddlesoap as an escort back to her uncles ranch. When she gets splashed by a passing wagon, Gunhawk tries to lift her up onto his horse. She is not impressed by this either and demands to be escorted by a gentleman.
A man named Earl Sinclair presents himself and uses his charm to convince Kitty that he is a gentleman unaware that Sinclair is a shifty cardsharp.

When they get their Judas' other son Simon informs them that his wife is ill. Believing that the ram was a bad omen he goes to see his wife who is dying of some illness.
