Sam moves in with Adam Wainwright to help run his guest house though, due to his shyness, they are not a couple. One of the tenants, Mandy Dean, is having a tough time, raising a baby fathered by black G.I. Gabe Kelly. Her old boyfriend Tommy Duggan is devastated when he returns and makes the discovery. To Foyle's dismay segregation is enforced in Hastings to prevent inter-racial fights and Gabe is beaten up for dancing with Mandy in public. They plan to move to New York but she is murdered on the night a robbery takes place at Gabe's barracks. Two pleasant boarders at the guest house are not what they seem but, with Mandy's killer behind bars, Gabe has an unusual offer of help to mind his child until he can return from New York for her.
