Returning to work Reid discovers a dying boy in a derelict house and finds out that he has run away from the workhouse. His suspicions that workhouse master Wilde is ill-treating the inmates are confirmed when pub singer Leda Starling claims that her son disappeared from there but Jackson declares Leda to be delusional and Wilde dismisses her as insane. Reid finds an unexpected ally in convicted murderer Redskin Jack who gives him the evidence to arrest Wilde for malpractice and hiding the corpses of boys who died in his care. Meanwhile Rose has difficulty bringing up Susan's son and Susan herself impresses Croker with her business acumen when dealing with a fraudster sea captain, though she has disobeyed Jackson's instruction to keep herself hidden.
