Irish bomber Aiden Galvin escapes from a police van and blows up and kills Cecil Knightly, a bigoted MP opposed to Home Rule. Abberline suspects the recently recognized Irish Republican Brotherhood as complicit but Reid believes otherwise and sends young Irish policeman Flight undercover to gain the confidence of Galvin's daughter, barmaid Evelyn. Flight is present when Galvin suggests that he and Evie flee to America but she is puzzled by letters sent from the States by a man claiming that he, not Galvin, is her father. Reid also learns that Knightly was a key figure in deciding which of two contenders should have the contract to bring electricity to Shadwell and suspects a link between one of them and Galvin.
