Last time we met, The Mighty Hansen was to break the leg of an individual for Sacha Rodriguez. So when the episode opens, he is on his way to the isle of Pago Pago, where the individual lives. They land and Joe, one of Sacha’s bodyguards, accompanies Hansen to meet with Hana Awei. We find out that Joe, or more correctly Joseph of Jerusalem, used to be a Hebrew Priest in the Temple of David, and escaped the destruction of the temple at the hands of the Babylonians, in 586 BC.
After that revelation, they find Hana Awei otherwise engaged with another conquest, but when Hansen intervened, she quickly left. Hana Awei offered other forms of combat, but Hansen turned him down, so they fought bare handed. Sadly fate was against Hansen as he slipped on a misplaced bra, and Hana Awei easily defeated him. Hana Awei knew that Hansen would get into trouble for not breaking his leg, so he offered a solution and they faked him having a broken leg. It fooled Sacha, especially as Joe went along with the scheme.
Sacha was so impressed, he offered to back Hansen to fight the champ on Skull Island. Hansen agreed to do so, especially as it would reestablish his reputation, and then scoped out his potential sparring partner, Bobo the Orangutang. So far, the money is on the monkey, but we’ll see how that goes.
Afterwords, the crew flew to Pirate Island,(Yes, that’s its name), and made contact with the primary broker of procured goods, George, the Orangutang. They found out that El Terrible had already purchased supplies from him and has headed for parts unknown. But they did share that El Terrible sold Sacha Rodriguez a coconut sized lightening crystal. Something that is worth thousands of dollars.
Sadly, the word has gotten out about it, and pirates are now on the move to find the treasure. That also means King Anson will probably hear about this as well. One wonders where the pirate had gotten it from. Well, one of El Terrible’s men was wounded on his way to his plane, and he’s now recuperating at King Louie’s Bar & Grill. What does he know? And will he tell our stalwart heroes? Will the Might Hansen make a monkey of Bobo? Will Dr. Quest ever figure out this crazy universe?
