Lone Wolf McQuade (1983) (part 2 of 3)

24. At a racetrack, Wilkes observes McQuade and his daughter through a pair of binoculars. He then hands off the binoculars to Falcon (Daniel Frishman), a midget crime boss in an electric wheelchair. What? Stop looking at me like that, I’m dead serious! The dude was John Larroquette’s boss on Night Court!

25. Sally gets on a horse, while McQuade and Dakota watch. As this is going on, Dakota notices Lola Richardson (Barbara Carrera, in a typically wooden yet still over the top performance) riding a horse. He classily asks McQuade, “How’d you like to bite that in the butt, develop lockjaw, and be dragged to death?” Well, I guess Lola would be our female lead.

26. Turns out she’s the widow of some rich guy who was into shady dealings, and if you guessed the shady dealings involved our main villain Wilkes, you win a prize. Suddenly, a car backfires, causing Sally’s horse to take off running. Lola sees this and rides after her, quickly getting the horse under control just as McQuade and Dakota rush up.

27. McQuade introduces himself, and of course, Lola knows him, referring to him as “the infamous Texas Ranger”. No, that would be Walker. This guy is more like his less practical slob cousin.
