After a boxing match between Lucas and Matt, the door is locked. Vic and Will break in and find them both unconscious. It looks like a double suicide. Vic knows more than he is letting on. Luke dies and Keating cannot believe who did it.
Will, Geordie (who hopes in vain to spared from romantic nonsense), and even Leonard attend the fund-raising boxing match between ultimately victorious Lucas Rawlings and initially dominant, heavier Matthew Butler in Vic Morgan's gym for wayward knaves. Will speculates Matt may have been bribed to lose, but when he and Geordie find the entrance barred afterwards, they break down the door and find both boys seemingly attempting a double suicide. Lucas dies in hospital, and Matthew is hysterically unable to stand any physical contact with men. The sleuths soon realize both boys had been the victims of a grave betrayal. Meanwhile Leonard mediates between unforgiving vicarage housekeeper Mrs. Chapman and her "immoral liar" husband Jack.Written by
I got a bit fed up with the last few episodes but this one gave a serious punch to the stomach - pun intended. I, too, was totally taken in by Vic, just like Will was. And I got so angry at the end. Reminded me how white men of a certain age do tend to get away with murder. Sickening. Anyway, I think it was handled very well by the writers and producers. Well done!
