Synopsis: Horatio Hornblower has a number of successes, but that doesn't keep him from gatting caught and thrown into a Spanish prison, where he finds someone he long thought dead.

Reaction: Again, a great chance for Hornblower to show off his stuff, but this time, it's more the honor of the man than the measure of the warrior.
