Lizzie Eustace's maid Crabstick turns state's evidence and tells police that her boyfriend buried the stolen diamond necklace somewhere in Italy but caught malaria and died before selling them or informing her of their location. Now Lizzie faces charges of perjury, the loss of her 50,000 pound necklace, and public humiliation. Now a pariah, she is turned out of the house of her "friend" Mrs. Crabtree, who presents her with a bill for her stay there, but her search for a male protector is rewarded in an unlikely quarter. Phineas Finn's wife dies in childbirth, and with a 5,000 pound legacy from his recently deceased father, returns to Britain in hopes of being reelected to Parliament. However, his embrace of unpopular causes puts him at odds with some of his fellow Liberal party members. He further endangers his position by agreeing to see Joseph Kennedy, who has suffered a mental breakdown and is living in exile on his Scottish estate. As a sidebar, Fawn renews his ham-handed pursuit ... Written by
