Teaser Jack is trying to bargain with a merchant. Emilia identifies the = merchant as Abdullah, one of their newest operatives. She finds a = message in her purchase that there is a super cannon on the island. = France may be planning to use it to bombard England. She decides it = must be taken care of. Jack is reluctant until Emilia says he will get = to blow something up. Suddenly a masked stranger starts shooting at = Jack. Jack barely excapes being shot full of holes, stabbed and beaten = with a whip. Jack finally grabs the whip and pulls his attacker to him. = The mask comes off. It's a woman and she and Jack kiss passionately. = Emilia can't believe what she is seeing. Jack finally comes up for air = and introduces his old partner, Kentucky Sue.

Act I

Kentucky Sue is coarse, swaggering and aggressive -- Emilia's complete = opposite. She and Jack reminisce about their exploits together, = including the Boston Tea Party and a winter at Valley Forge. Emilia is = disbelieving and a little jealous of their stories.

Kentucky says she came to track Jack down to find out why he left her at = West Point. Jack is distracted by a quarrel between some soldiers and = merchants and reappears as the Dragoon to break it up. Kentucky thinks = the Dragoon looks familiar.

Emilia hears suspicious noises coming from Jack's room and interrupts = Jack and Kentucky as they are wrestling. Emilia asks to speak to Jack = privately. Kentucky: "I think Jack can make up his own mind." Emilia: = "He could, if he could remember where he lost it." Jack accuses Em of = being jealous, but Emilia denies it. She reminds Jack that they have a = mission -- the super cannon. Jack says she's right and that he'll tell = Kentucky she has to leave that night at Croque's dinner party.

Croque and Brogard discuss the super cannon. They decide to test it by = blowing up a village across the strait. Meanwhile, Jack is trying to = tell Kentucky she is in the way of the mission. Kentucky interrupts to = say, yes, she'll marry him. Jack is appalled and tries in a fumbling = way to convince Kentucky she will be better off without him. Kentucky = realizes he is trying to get out of marrying her and hits him over the = head with a plate of fruit. Kentucky then tells Croque that she is = there to turn in the "daring dragon."

Act II

Kentucky says the Dragoon is right under their noses. Jack jumps up and = says, of course, the Dragoon is there on the island. He quickly = introduces Kentucky as his fiancee and asks Croque to marry them. Jack = says the Dragoon is probably looking for the super cannon, so why don't = they demonstrate it publicly and the Dragoon is sure to show up. Croque = and Brogard agree and announce that the super cannon is at the fortress.

Kentucky shows Jack how she wants to be romanced -- having him feed her = grapes and serenade her, for example. Jack complains to Emilia that he = is about to explode from flowers and poetry. Emilia is more concerned = with the mixture she is going to use to blow up the cannon, but she = advises Jack to tell Kentucky the truth. Kentucky overhears their = conversation and starts shooting up the lab. Jack finally reveals to = Kentucky that he had been under orders to kill her because it was = thought that she was a traitor. He had left her at West Point to go = smoke out the real traitor -- "some joker named Benedict Arnold." = Kentucky calms down.

At the fortress, Croque is about to test the cannon, but the Dragoon = cuts the wick just in time. While he keeps the soldiers occupied, = Emilia sneaks in and plants her explosives. Jack is about to be = overpowered by the soldiers, but Kentucky shoots a pile of cannonballs = and creates a distraction. Croque almost catches Emilia, but Kentucky = saves her, too. The cannon is blown up.

Jack and Emilia say goodbye to Kentucky Sue. Kentucky apologizes for = shooting up the lab and Emilia wishes her luck. Jack and Kentucky kiss = goodbye, then Kentucky slugs him and boards the ship laughing. =20
