Murdoch Mysteries (2008–…): Season 6, Episode 10 - Twisted Sisters - full transcript

Detective Murdoch investigates the death of young woman, Judith Winslow, found on the waterfront at the Toronto Athletic Club. Dr. Grace determines the young woman died from drowning though she was struck on the head before going into the water. She worked as a secretary at a financial firm run by Alvin Storey but had ambitions to be a journalist. According to her roommate Sophia Lucas, she had no enemies. The police soon have a second murder when Ethel Morgan is found dead in a alleyway - also having drowned. A third victim - Virginie Rousseau - is found before Murdoch finds the connection between the three. Emily Grace - champion croquet player for two years running - returns to the athletic club - she was not welcome there once she broke off her engagement - after hearing that Canada will be sending a croquet player to the Paris Olympics.


These lads were on a training run

- when they discovered the body.
- Training?

Yes, sir. For the upcoming
Olympics in Paris, apparently.

Even though the club isn't
sponsoring any track athletes.

Apparently they don't think we
can beat the famous George Orton.

Excuse me.

Emily Grace?

- Fancy meeting you here.
- Ralph?

It's been a long time.

- I haven't seen you since...
- I called off my engagement. Yes.

- Dr. Grace?
- We miss you at the club.

- I must go.
- Did you know that

the Club is sending a croquet
player to the Olympics?

- Really?
- Yeah.

- Doctor!
- Didn't that used to be your sport?

Dr. Grace!

Sorry, Detective Murdoch.

Who was that chap?

My apologies, Detective.
An unexpected reunion.

Um, upon first examination,

it would appear this woman likely drowned.

And the wound on her head?


Yes. Uh, that would suggest otherwise.

I'll need a full report, Dr. Grace,

at your earliest possible
convenience, of course.


So, how did you know these
chaps who found the body?

The Toronto Athletic Club.


George, are you jealous?

The Athletic Club. I've never
been through the front door.

I was a member once.

But after I broke off
my engagement to Jerome,

I wasn't quite as welcome.

I do miss it sometimes. I
was quite the croquet player.

- Really?
- Mm-hmm.

City champion two years in a row.

And now somebody from that very
club is off to the Olympics?

- So it seems.
- Emily, that could be you.

- I don't know, George.
- I think you do.

Dr. Grace, your report?

Detective. Certainly.

Our victim did indeed drown.

And the head wound?

Occurred ante-mortem. The
wound is a substantial one.

She would have been
unconscious after such a blow

and would likely have died from
it had she not drowned first.

So she was struck first, and then drowned.

I believe so. Also, the same
phylum mastigophora were found

present in both the water
in her lungs and the lake.

So she died where she was found.

Have you established a time of death?

Between 7 and 9 o'clock last evening.

Her name is Judith Winslow.

The photo came from her friend,

Miss Sophia Lucas.

She reported Miss Winslow
missing first thing this morning.

She hasn't budged since.


I'm afraid so.

Miss Lucas, you and Miss Winslow
live at the same boarding house?

- Was she home last night?
- No.

We had plans to attend the
music hall, but she cancelled.

- Do you know why?
- I imagine it had to do

with her work. And what work was that?

She was a secretary at the
financial firm of Mr. Alvin Storey.

- Did Miss Winslow have any enemies?
- No.

She was the sweetest girl.

Thank you, Miss Lucas.


please accompany Miss Lucas home

and begin a search of Miss Winslow's room.


Mr. Storey, do you know

- a Miss Judith Winslow?
- Oh, yes, of course.

She works here. Right over here.

Oh, it seems she's not in.

No. No, she wouldn't be.
You see, she's been murdered.

Well, that is terrible.

Was Miss Winslow at work yesterday?

I believe so.

And what time did she leave here?

Seven o'clock, I imagine. That's
when the ladies usually leave.

Did you happen to notice anything
unusual about Miss Winslow yesterday?

Did she appear anxious,
or different in any way?

I'm afraid I wouldn't know, Detective.

I never paid much attention to her.

Emily Grace.

How courageous of you.
The sign-in is right here.

- Are you on the team?
- No.

Not me. I'm just presiding over the trials.

Truth be told, we've only
had one competitor so far.

No one dared contest her.
And who would that be?

Emily Grace.

Hello, Eustacia.

You seem surprised.

I can't imagine why.

After your ignominious departure,
the croquet title went to me.

Well, you always did like my discards.

I'll remember those words while
I'm strolling the Rive Gauche.

We'll see about that.


I've found a couple of interesting things.

This is a, uh, diary of sorts.

The last entry was dated two days ago.

The day before she died. "Maple Cottage."

And this is a train schedule for Kleinburg.

She has an aunt in Kleinburg
whom she visits rather frequently.

Another thing, sir. It
seems that Miss Winslow was

also employed by the Toronto Gazette.

Doing what?

She was trying to be a reporter,

but all the editor would let her
write was the Lady Fay column.

- Lady Fay?
- It's an etiquette column, sir.

You know, how to dress the
table for company and so on.

Apparently she wrote the one about which
tie a man should wear to which occasion.

Did you know, sir, that white
ties are only for formal events?

I almost bought a white tie once,
but there was a green one there

that seemed to bring my eyes out
more, or so the lady said George.

Judith wanted to be a serious journalist.

She was always looking
for the one big story

that would make her a household name.

- Apparently without much success.
- Sir,

perhaps she recently
stumbled upon something.

And perhaps that something
was in Mr. Storey's office.

You manage the assets of some
of the city's wealthiest men.

That I do. Detective, I really
don't have time for this today.

Well, perhaps we can have this conversation

down at the station house,
if that will help you

better concentrate.

Were you aware

that Miss Winslow had
aspirations towards journalism?

Well, if I had been, I
never would have ceded

to my sister's request and hired her.

- We deal with sensitive information here.
- Sensitive?

Yes, sir. Sensitive, but not illegal.

All of my clients' finances
are completely above board.

I should very much like to verify that.

Oh, please do. Your time is yours to waste.

May I?

May I?

- Any luck, Murdoch?
- Sir,

we've been through Storey's accounts.

Everything looks perfectly legitimate.

Miss Winslow may have been on to something,

but I doubt it had anything
to do with Alvin Storey.

Something'll turn up. It always does.

Sirs. There's been another murder.

It's another young woman, I'm afraid.

Her name's Ethel Morgan. She lives...

well, lived... in a boarding house nearby.

A perfectly respectable neighbourhood.

And judging by her state of dress,

a perfectly respectable woman.

I wonder what she was doing in
a laneway this time of night.

Perhaps she wasn't here voluntarily.

The killer made no
attempts to hide her body.

She was drowned. And certainly not here.

Detective, take a look at this.

Two victims,

two nights in a row, killed
apparently the same way.

Not another sequential killer.

I certainly hope not, sir.

I found this in her skirt pocket.

It seemed strange enough to be of interest.


That's of great interest,
Dr. Grace. Thank you.

It could be an identifier of sorts.

- Identifier?
- These are unique pieces

- of what could be a larger symbol.
- But to what end?

Pieces of a whole could mean that

these woman are to him
pieces of a larger scheme.

But until we know what the symbol is...

We have no way of knowing how
many victims are forthcoming.

For once, Julia, I
sincerely hope you're wrong.

Sir, the landlady says
that she was a student.

Studied at that Baptist
college up on Bloor Street.

McMaster University.

With an apparent interest
in ancient religions.

Did you find any connection
to Judith Winslow?

No, sir. The landlady had never
seen nor... heard of Miss Winslow.

That is a beautiful
typewriter. Look at that, sir,

how smooth... the keys are.

Oh, and this pen, wow.

George, pack up Miss Morgan's things.

We'll have a closer look
at the station house.

Sir, will do.


"Meet me in my office
at 5:30." Signed "MB".

Dated yesterday.


Yes, Detective, I wrote this note.

I am Miss Morgan's thesis advisor.

What time did Miss Morgan
leave you last night?

She never arrived.

Did that not strike you as odd?

Miss Morgan has other interests

that often divert her attention.

She considers herself
something of a crusader

in the women's suffrage movement.

- Which you oppose?
- Quite the opposite.

There is not a single female Ph.D.
graduate from a Canadian university.

Miss Morgan is on the cusp of greatness...

if she would only focus.


A scene from the Shahnameh,
the Persian "Book of Kings".

That is the story of Zal and Rudabeh.

Their great love was
sanctioned by the gods,

but not by their families.

Love conquered prejudice, and
they lived happily ever after.

A much more generous ending
than Shakespeare's version.

You are Persian?

On my father's side,
but I was born in India.

May I ask, is Miss Morgan
in some kind of trouble?

She was murdered. Drowned.


How awful.

Dr. Grace has determined

that Ethel Morgan was
drowned in her own bathtub.

- Yes, sir. Unfortunately, that doesn't help us.
- No connection, then?

Well, sir, we know that both
women attended university.

Judith Winslow went to Victoria
College and got a degree in literature,

and Ethel Morgan was in the
middle of her Master's degree

in ancient religions
at McMaster University.

So, they went to different
schools, studied different courses.

- No friends in common, no hobbies, nothing.
- No, sir,

but both women were killed
exactly the same way,

and both were in possession
of this same identifier.

What about suspects? Alvin Storey?

- No connection to Ethel Morgan.
- What about the other fellow,

- Bahmanyar?
- No connection to Judith Winslow.

Sirs, I've been going through
the young women's effects.

And you've found something?

- It might seem silly, sir.
- Out with it, Crabtree.

Well, Miss Winslow and Miss Morgan were

both in possession of
the same fountain pen.

Yes, Crabtree, both girls could write.

Not exactly breaking the
case wide open, are you?

No, sir, but this is a
particularly fine pen,

Even more fine than the Parker
Gold Filigree Lucky Curve.

You see, sirs, the nib is made of gold.

This makes it more resilient
to the acid in the ink.

I myself have been envious
of this pen for some time,

but on a constable's salary
it's unlikely that George,

how exclusive is this pen?

Sir, this particular one costs $20.

There's only one stationer
in the city that sells them.

Yes, these most certainly came from us.


Have you ever seen
either of these two women?

No, but I've been in England
for the last two months.

I just got back yesterday.
My clerk might know more.


Good day. Detective Murdoch,
Toronto Constabulary.

What can you tell me
about these fountain pens?


St... stop!

All right.

Do you know these women?

She came into the shop a few weeks ago,

with her father.

He bought our best typewriter
and... and one of those pens.

And this one?

That's Judith.

She and I went to university together.

When did you last see her?

I don't know. A few days ago.

Look, I'm sorry. I couldn't help myself.

Couldn't help what?

I knew she wanted it.

You knew she wanted what, exactly?

The pen. I gave her this
fancy gold fountain pen.

She couldn't afford
it, and neither could I.

- Julia?
- Can you believe that of all the houses in Toronto,

he chooses one a mere three blocks from me?

- What are you talking about?
- Darcy has purchased

a house on Jarvis Street.

Perhaps he simply wanted to
be closer to the hospital.

William, please. He knows full well

that I live on Linden Street
and that my route to work is

directly past his new front door.

I don't think it was intentional.

I don't know what I find more
infuriating, Darcy's blatant attempt

to distress me, or your
refusal to acknowledge it!

Miss Lucas.

Detective, I'm sorry to bother you,

but I've remembered something
that might be helpful.


The night before Judith died,
there was a letter waiting for her.

- What was in the letter?
- I don't know, but it was

after Judith read it that she cancelled
our plans to attend the music hall.

Hm. Do you know where the letter is now?

No, but I did catch of glimpse of it.

It looked as though it was
written in a man's hand.

Ethel Morgan was to meet a man the night

- that she died.
- I'm sorry, did you say...

Miss Lucas?

- No, I just...
- Are you quite all right?

Uh, yes, yes. I should go.

William, your Miss Lucas
knows more than she's saying.

Yes. It seems she recognized
the name "Ethel Morgan".

Perhaps you've found your connection.

Detective William Murdoch.

It's Sophia Lucas. I must speak with you.

Meet me at 8 o'clock in Judith's room.

Miss Lucas? Hello?

- Where is she?
- Sir.

You're needed.

- Sir, this way.
- Jackson, what's happened?

Best you see for yourself, sir.

Sophia Lucas?


it's not her.

Then who is this?

Do you know who she is?

The landlady identified
her as Virginie Rousseau.

Dr. Grace?

Oh, I've found, in the
case of multiple deaths,

a simple system of organization makes
the cold chamber much easier to navigate.

The foot is left exposed, and a quick

reference card is affixed,

allowing immediate access to
whichever corpse is required.

How very organized.

- And your findings?
- It works quite well.

Of Miss Rousseau.

Yes, of course.

She died at approximately
8 o'clock last night.

The manner of death was identical
to that of Ethel Morgan's.

First she suffered a blow to the head,

which rendered her
unconscious, but not fatally so.

Then she was drowned.

So all three women
suffered a blow to the head.

Yes. You'll be wanting this.

It was also in her pocket.

George, have you completed your interviews?

Yes, sir. Sir, we have a witness

who saw a woman coming out of
Miss Rousseau's room at 9 o'clock.

I showed her a picture of Sophia Lucas.

The witness confirms it was she.

Very good, George. Henry!

- Find Sophia Lucas as soon as possible.
- Yes, sir.

Sophia Lucas has played
us for patsies, then.

Possibly, sir. But her
voice betrayed genuine fear.

Or genuine acting talent.

She was the last one seen with the victim.

What is that?

A Persian eagle.

It is a Faravahar,

a symbol of Zoroastrianism,
the religion of Ancient Persia.

- What does it represent?
- A guardian angel,

and reminder to follow the
principles of Zoroaster,

to be worthy of union with Ahura Mazda,

the true, uncreated god.

A guardian angel? Seems
like a strange symbol

to place on the dead bodies of young women.

Professor, do you know of any other

- Zoroastrians in Toronto?
- Pashti.

And if I did, I'd sorely like to meet them.

As far as I know,
Detective, I am the only one.



your figure seems to be missing its tail.

Sir, there's a fourth piece.

That means there's a fourth victim.

We'd best find Sophia Lucas.

Crabtree, where's Miss Lucas?

She hasn't been seen since last night,
sir, before she telephoned the detective.

Right. I'll get all the lads
on it, whatever it takes.

Miss Lucas is neck-deep in all of this.

- She's our best suspect.
- Or our next victim.

- Hm.
- Inspector.

Julia. Thank you for coming. George?

Ah, sir, our latest victim,
Miss Rousseau, comes from...

Rye... mousky?

- Rimouski, in Quebec?
- That's the one, sir.

She came to Toronto to
study at St. Hilda's College.

Apparently her parents would only
allow her to attend an all-women school.

And there are such schools in Quebec.

Yes, but it seems she wasn't
accepted into any of them.

She wanted to become a doctor,
but consistently failed her exams.

Did she know Miss Winslow or Miss Morgan?

- I don't think so, sir.
- What about Miss Lucas?

Not as far as I can tell.

So our only common factor
is that all three women were

university educated. Could that
be why they were being targeted?

It's a theory. It would fit with
the non-traditional career paths

each of these women had chosen...
professor, doctor, journalist.

Right then, George,

have a look at our recent cases.

See if there are any complaints
from university-educated women

- who are being threatened or attacked.
- I know of a place

where you could speak to many
of these women themselves.

And this is?

Toronto Adelphean Society,

modelled after an American
fraternity for women founded in 1851.

Amazingly, the Americans began
educating their women long before we did.

I wish there had been a
society when I was at school,

but we were only a handful then.

Those were pioneering days.
We have it much easier now.

Do you know Judith Winslow?

Of course.

Judith was like an older sister to me,

not just a fraternity sister.

It was becae of her that I had the
courage to become a student myself.

How very sad what happened
to her. And the others.

- The others?
- Ethel and Virginie.

We've been quite devastated by it all.

Miss Gregson, are you telling me
that you knew all of these women?

Why, yes. They were three
of the founding members,

along with Sophia and Amelia.

- Sophia Lucas?
- Yes.

In the beginning it was
more like a secret society,

with rituals and rules...
white robes and all.

Now it's more of a study group,

especially after what happened.

After what happened?

Three years ago, a member died.

Amelia Richards. She committed suicide.

How, exactly?

She drowned.

Amelia was always frail. Poor thing.

Always had trouble with her lungs.

But it didn't stop her from
doing whatever she wanted.

She was so close to
graduating from university.

In the weeks prior to
your daughter's death,

was she at all unhappy?

She was happier than I'd ever seen her.

But so secretive.

How do you mean, secretive?

Going out at all hours, never telling me

who she was with, or,
worse, lying about it.

- This was unlike her?
- Oh, yes.

- We'd always been very close.
- Mrs. Richards,

could there have been
a man in Amelia's life?

I've often wondered that myself.

Because of this.

I found it after she passed.

It looks like a courting gift,

though I've never seen
the likes of it before.

So you knew Amelia Richards?

She was a student of mine, yes.

As was Ethel Morgan.

And you surely know what
happened to Miss Richards.

Yes. A tragedy. Prejudice
can be hard to overcome.


Yes. Female students are
often subjected to derision.

I imagine it's not unlike
being of a different religion.

People can be cruel.

Was Amelia Richards ever threatened?

- I wouldn't know.
- But you'd know about this.

Do you know who this belonged to?

Amelia Richards.

Do you know how she came
to be in possession of it?

You said yourself that there are

very few Pashti in Toronto.

Presumably this type of token
would be very difficult to come by.

Mr. Bahmanyar, we know bloody
well that you gave it to her.

She was my Rudabeh,

my forbidden love,

but her parents would have
never sanctioned our union,

and my religion does not allow
marriage outside the faith.

It was hopeless.

She simply couldn't bear it.

- Who else knew of your affair?
- Not a soul.

I would have lost my job, and
she would have been expelled.

How did you know Judith Winslow

- and Virginie Rousseau?
- I don't.

Where were you the last
three nights at 8 o'clock?

Here. Alone.

And it's Mr. Bahmanyar.

Oh, he's good for it.

Slippery bloody foreigner. Sir.

Ah, yes?

So, you are really going
to try to take me on?

I am, whether or not
you allow me to practice.

I have earned my spot on the team.

I object to you being able to contest it.

Considering my ability,
I can't say I blame you.

No one here is going to cheer you
on. Quite the opposite, I imagine.

I've arranged my own supporters.

Paid for, out of your very
own little salary, I imagine,

working woman that you are.

Who allowed that rabble in here?


I hope

I haven't missed anything.

Hello there. Uh, George Crabtree.

Um... how's the practice going?

I'm very much looking
forward to the game tomorrow.

That's a nice suit. From
Timothy Eaton's, is it?

My Aunt Begonia, actually.
She's an excellent seamstress.


How quaint. I must say,

Emily, he's so very perfect for you.

A match made in middleclass.

Well, Dr. Grace,

this place is exactly how I imagined.

I know you're nervous, but I think you'll
swing circles around this Eustacia Stokes.

In fact, I'm quite looking
forward to watching you beat her.

George, I think it might
be best if you don't...

If I don't what?


If you don't want me to
come, Emily, just say.

It's all right. I understand.

- George...
- It's fine. I take no of fence.

Henry, watch what you're doing.
You're muddling up the evidence.

What are you talking about?
This is Sophia Lucas' pen.

No, that's Judith Winslow's pen.

Well, then it's Ethel Morgan...

See, George?

It's Sophia Lucas' pen.

All three girls with the same pen.

Good work, Henry. Come with me.

That Kane Mueller from the stationery store

has something to do with
Sophia Lucas' disappearance.

This is where he lives.
She's in there. I know it.


That's him.

Henry, I'll wait here. You fetch
Detective Murdoch immediately.

- Thank you, officer.
- You're welcome.


We've found Sophia Lucas!


- You can't come in here.
- Get out of the way.

No, hey, no, wait!

Go this way.

Miss Lucas! Miss Lucas!

This one's clear!

Check the other end of the hallway.

- He's going to kill me next.
- Who?

Professor Bahmanyar.

Where is Kane?

Mr. Mueller is in holding
until we get some answers.

He has nothing to do with
this. He's just a friend.

I asked him to hide me.

Miss Lucas, please tell me, why is it you
think Professor Bahmanyar is trying to kill you?

Miss Lucas, I know about
the Adelphean Society.

I know about Amelia Richards.

- Oh, you know?
- Mm.

It was all a terrible mistake.

Judith and her rituals.

She wanted us to be like the Freemasons.

Then she found out about
Amelia and that foreigner...

Professor Bahmanyar.

We were all disgusted, but
Judith was really angry.

She said that Amelia was
jeopardizing everything

that women students had fought so hard for.

Not only would the dalliance
have led to her expulsion,

but she would have disgraced her family

and us. Tell me about
the night Amelia died.

We wore white robes.

We'd never dressed for a ritual before.

We went to the lake.

We dunked her underwater

six times...

one for every month she
was involved with him.

The sixth time she went underwater,
she stopped breathing altogether.

We didn't know what to do.

But it was ruled a suicide.

No one asked any
questions. No one else knew.

Only the four of us.

He must have discovered what we'd done.

Now they're all dead, all but me.

May I go now?


No, you most certainly may not go.

What do you mean, I killed
three girls? I did no such thing.

- I didn't even know two of them.
- We know you drowned those girls,

the same way they drowned Amelia Richards.

Amelia? What do you mean?

Her friends learned of your affair,

and her friends wanted to put an end it,

so they "purified" her

by repeatedly immersing
her head underwater.

- But her weak lungs.
- Exactly.

They killed her, you killed them.

Amelia... murdered. All this time.

- Yes.
- So she did not kill herself?


Thank you, Detective.

Thank you.

Gentlemen, I believe he was sincere.

He genuinely did not know the
truth about Miss Richards' death.

Excuse me, Doctor, but I think
you've been taken in somewhat.

I watched the emotions on his face.

Only a very calculating person would be
able to control himself so convincingly.

And there's been no other indicators.

And yet, Bahmanyar is the only person
with any sort of motive whatsoever.

I'll agree the murders seem
to be motivated by revenge,

but perhaps not Bahmanyar's.

How about the lad who
works in the pen shop?

No, I believe it was someone

who knew what really
happened to Amelia Richards.

But other than Sophia Lucas, they're
all dead. Do you have the statement?

Yes, sir.

"We dressed in white robes."

Took themselves very
seriously, didn't they?

Hilda Gregson mentioned white robes.

I believe she did. But how
would she have known that?

Because she was there.

Miss Gregson, you're aware of
what happened to Amelia Richards?

She committed suicide.

The truth... that she was
drowned and left for dead.

You're also aware that three
of the women that participated

in that ritual are now also dead.


You witnessed the event,
perhaps even sanctioned it.

I had nothing to do with it.

Where were you the past three
nights between 6 and 8pm?


Studying. With any number of witnesses.

I didn't kill anyone.

I didn't kill Amelia.


but you watched her die and did nothing.

What could I do?

I couldn't tell anyone.

No one would believe me.


Are you all right?

So, Alvin Storey is Hilda
Gregson's half-brother.

And you think he knows
about Amelia Richards' death?

Yes, sir. And I believe my
first instinct was right.

Judith Winslow was on to something. George!


Before her death, Judith Winslow visited

her aunt's cottage in
Kleinburg. Maple Cottage.

Perhaps she left some notes
there for safe keeping.

- Crabtree, you're on the next train.
- Sir.

So, you think Storey
wanted Miss Winslow dead.

But then, why the other girls?

Well, sir, perhaps he killed the
other girls to throw us off the track,

thinking that we would
link the other deaths

to the first murder
and Professor Bahmanyar.

That would make him a right evil bastard.

I'd be inclined to agree with you, sir.

And you don't know where George is?

He said he was off to Kleinburg.

- Today?
- Mm-hmm.

But that means he'll miss my croquet game.

Well, I could watch
your game, if you'd like.

Uh, that's quite all
right, Constable Higgins.

Of course.

Have a look at these women.
Do you recognize them?

And, uh, this.

Except there's one piece missing.

I wonder who that was meant for.


I don't know these girls.

You should.

They were all part of the
Adelphean society with your sister.

If you say so.

As was Amelia Richards.

I know what happened to her.

My sister wasn't involved with that.

No, but she knew the truth,
as did your secretary,

Judith Winslow. Because you knew

Judith Winslow had killed Amelia Richards,

you knew you had something
you could use against her.

Use against? She was a secretary.

A secretary trying to become a journalist.

And like any good journalist,
she had found out something...

something that could destroy you.

Tell me about Maple Cottage.

You keep them out of this.

I'm afraid I can't do that.


Hello. Thank you for coming in.

Could you please identify this man?

It's all right. You can tell him.

He is my husband.

I see. Thank you.

But there's no record of your marriage.

We may not have been married in a church,

but we are married all the same.

And Judith Winslow had found out the truth.

I don't know what you mean.

You don't have a shred of evidence.

Ah, yes.

We found this in your home.

I know your secret.

Judith knew about my wife.

She was going to write a story about it.

She said I was a disgrace

and that my wife was a... a "dirty Indian".

I told her I would tell everyone
what she did to Miss Richards.

But she laughed at me,

told me no one would believe
it. I couldn't contain myself.

I grabbed her to shake some sense into her,

but she stepped backwards and hit her head.

I took her to the lake and threw her in,

thinking it would look like she drowned.

And what about the other two women?

I had to make it look like
someone else killed her.

By pointing the evidence
at Professor Bahmanyar?

If people had found out about Marianne,

it would have destroyed me.

It would have destroyed my children.

I would have lost everything!

Damn it, man, I was protecting my family.

Any man would do the same.

I don't think that they would.

I'm going to see that you hang for this.

Professor? You've been dismissed?

Affairs with students are forbidden.

I'm being made an example of.

Oh, I see. Where will you go?

Perhaps Australia. They don't
mind an indiscretion or two.

- I wish you luck.
- Thank you, Detective.

Thank you for setting my heavy heart free.

I spoke to my solicitor. Mr.
Storey's assets will go to his sister.

She refuses to acknowledge the new family.

He intends to marry her
legally before his trial.

At least then the children
will be taken care of.

I suppose that's something.

- Emily, we have to begin.
- Just another few minutes.

Obviously your man-for-hire
found a better job.

Or have you finally
realized you're outclassed...

in every sense?

Look, we have to start now or you forfeit.

Emily! I'm sorry, I was detained.

- Police duty.
- Good Lord. A constable.

Even worse than I thought.

Thank you for coming, George.

- I wouldn't have missed it.
- Shall we?

Well done, well done, well done!

Excellent shot, miss. Dr. Grace,

it looks like you have
your work cut out for you.

Well, it looks like the
game really and truly is on.

Hey! Excellent!

Well done.

Hey! Oh-ho-ho!


- Dreadfully sorry.
- That's not very sporting, man.

- Are you going to arrest me, Constable?
- I should thank you, Ralph.

Your sneeze put me in
an excellent position.

I suppose I should start saving my pennies

- for the Gallerie Colbert.
- Yes.

Perhaps they are looking for a
shop girl and a security guard.

I can just imagine the papers.

"Lady doctor and her pet
constable take the gutters

- of Paris by storm."
- Ugh!


Oh! I'm so sorry. How
dreadfully clumsy of me.

Oh, my foot. It's broken.

- It's broken!
- Oh, it is not.


Uh... look, I'm sorry, Dr. Grace,

but I have no choice but to disqualify you

and ask you to leave
the premises immediately.

Dr. Grace was about to win the competition!

Assaulting one's opponent is

hardly the action of an Olympian!

Emily, you were about to win.

- Of course I was.
- So, what,

you... threw away Paris for me?

Oh, don't go getting a swelled
head over it, George Crabtree.

Good crack!
