Julia Massini has recently resettled in North Fork and has made quite an impression with her new boarding house and her great cooking. Lucas recognizes her however as a card cheat who 12 years before swindled a good friend of his out of his life savings. He confronts her and she claims to have turned over a new leaf and left her old life long ago. Lucas isn't sure he's prepared to give her the benefit of the doubt but when her old 'friends' show up in North Fork aiming to turn it into a gambling town, Julia shows her resolve and gains Lucas' support.

Maybe you didn't rightly cause it, ma'am, but it seemed to occur 'round your vacinity regardless.
