As the plague claims more victims Billy Oates reappears as part of Mrs Wild's acting troupe. Another vicar is found dead, like the others with his heart cut out, and Spence tells Marlott all three victims opposed the dean's greedy land deals. Peel, however, demands that the dean allow a cemetery for the plague victims to be built on church land. Meanwhile Marlott traces the source of the plague, believing Hervey to be involved, and Esther learns that Dipple has employed her to make a dress for his newly-created automaton.
