JP Morgan forced the board to rehire Muir, to Lord Pirrie's relief, to design a solution for the expensive sinking prevention, but even his novel compromise is ultimately rejected too, as too unattractive for first class passengers. Conor worked out which Fenians betrayed his company to the Biritish forces and traps them to an 'execution'. Trade union leader Michael McCann not only looses the Belfast parliament seat as labor candidate, a fellow yard worker who refused to join because he opposes autonomy from London leads a street to beat him up as warning to leave Ulster. Mark decides against following Sofia to London, although his work seems pointless as the board overrules him every time. Written by KGF Vissers
