Storyline

Joshua Bloom is killed in an explosion at his house, supposedly by one of his homemade bombs as he was a member of a radical Jewish group. The group is linked to a strike at the docks, but Jackson establishes that Joshua was murdered. Joshua's brother Isaac tells Reid it was because he had recognized a spy for the Russian secret police, who had come to Whitechapel. Going undercover as a striker, Jackson identifies the spy, whose assignment is to whip up hatred against Jewish groups by launching a bombing campaign for which the Jews will be blamed. Reid is appalled to learn that the thuggish special branch officer, Constantine, approves this. Reid has to prevent a bombing outrage on a scale far larger than Constantine had imagined. Reid also confides in Deborah Goren how he lost his daughter, whose body was never found after a boating accident. They kiss but are observed by Drake. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

Mention of Haymarket to Jackson references the bombing that occurred at a peaceful pro-labor, pro-strike rally on May 4, 1886, at Chicago's Haymarket Square. The anarchist was never identified, and the incident resulted in the deaths of seven police officers and four citizens plus numerous injuries. It was dubbed :The Haymarket Riots," and is also termed "The Haymarket Affair" and "The Haymarket Massacre." See more »

Twisting of historical facts, (not) as expected.
13 January 2015 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Really, can anyone swallow this load of baloney? Events turned upside down. Tsar killed in 19th century? (Actually 1917, 20th century, while the series takes place in late 19th, 1880's 1890's). Do they think that we are that stupid, and that that we don't have the access to the Internet. Who needs propaganda on this scale? Major insult on EVERYONE's intelligence. Russia was battling Bolsheviks until they took over in 1917, killing the entire royal family: Tsar Nicholas II, along with his wife, Tsaritsa Alexandra, their 14-year-old son, Tsarevich Alexis, and their four daughters, in cold blood. This is a criminal reviewing of the history. A great disappointment from a series that had started in a grand way.
