Storyline

An exotic black pearl suspected of having supernatural powers finds its way into Matavai and into David Griefs's possession. We see the vast cultural differences between our Western-educated hero and the native woman, Lavinia, who loves him. She is highly superstitious, a belief reinforced by the fact that the pearl's last several owners have met with sudden and inexplicable deaths. Isabelle has managed by deceptive means to convince the authorities that charges against her have been dropped, and she steals the pearl from Grief. A mysterious and threatening stranger, Naari Herring, comes to town to reclaim the pearl he says is his or Grief will die. Grief doesn't believe in Herring's claims until the end of the episode, when there is no other explanation for another man's death. To all appearances, Lavinia's superstitious are not without foundation, and David gains a better understanding of their differences. Written by Anonymous
