Storyline

Ruth is annoyed that Marcus is organizing her life for her - moving her furniture into the Grand and planning the reception without her, so she asks why he is marrying her. His answer is "You'll do". Mr. Collins, to quell staff resentment of Monica's rise in the world, throws a below-stairs party. Meanwhile James returns to London alone and Monica realizes that Esmee was right in her view that he was using her. She accepts hospitality from a friend of James, Jackson Tyler, but he takes her to a bedroom and, with two others, rapes her. After the others have left she hits him on the head, killing him, and is arrested for murder. Despite the claims of a lawyer, paid by an anonymous benefactor, that she acted in self-defence, Monica is found guilty of murder. Written by don @ minifie-1
