Finally the girl betrays Gessler. She warns Tell about her and Gessler's plan.


 A soldier has received the order to shoot 'the one' next to Tell. That suppose to be 'Gerhard,' so Tell coud show Gessler how he brings Gerhard alive. But Gerhard is not there at the very moment. But suddenly Gessler's girl is. She tries to get ahead of the plan and warns Tell about his friend. Now she is 'the one' at Tell's side...

She tells William about the plan but Tell isn't aware of a 'secret' about the power of life and dead. Gessler is convinced Tell can influence life. When Gessler's girl is the one who is shot in the back, she beggs Tell to keep her alive and use his secret amulet. Tell is surprised she asks and found out he has no might about life and dead.


Gessler is left empty handed: he knows no secret, his girlfriend betrayed him and she unfortunetely died.
