Storyline

With Louisa off to France for a short holiday Mary, with the help of Major Smith-Barton, is in charge of the hotel and has been tasked specifically with hiring a new maid. Mr. Starr, the porter, is shocked to find an old acquaintance and seems confused as to what to do about it. His friend seems to be down on her luck and all she wants is for him to act as a reference for her when she applies for a position at the Bentinck. She threatens to expose some information from his past if he doesn't and he reluctantly agrees but when she does start work and money begins to disappear from the guests rooms, Starr begins to worry about his decision.
