October 16, 1864. Corcoran and O'Brien are charged with solving a peculiar double murder. As the detectives weigh the evidence, affairs and deception come together in a surprising case of revenge gone wrong. Five Points gathers to watch the exhibition fight between Jasper Longfield and "Irish" Jake McGinnis. But as the boxing match continues, it becomes apparent that there is more riding on this fight than meets the eye. As racial tensions flare in the final moments, Robert Morehouse is forced to make a decision that will affect the security of Five Points and New York City at large. Rebellious Annie continues to terrorize an impatient Elizabeth. Desperate to reform the wayward child, Elizabeth feels she has only one option. Written by BBCAmerica
