Pigeons are bad, especially when carrying bubonic plague.
The Spider escapes one fight with the help of a parasol!
The Black Death wants to use bubonic plague to blackmail the city, starting with a dog sent to infect and kill some children, an outbreak at the stock exchange, some random attacks on the street.
The Spider is caught twice, once by The Black Death, and once, as Wentworth, by the police, with the commissioner believing him to be The Spider. A crazy stunt lets him escape, Nita and Apollo the great dane come to his rescue a couple of times, and eventually they track the miscreant down.
It doesn't end well for him, as The Spider literally strangles the life out of him. Some of the villain's gloating was cleverly recorded on tape by The Spider, planting evidence that Wentworth is now in the clear.
