Corcoran gets there to find Winnie Haverford meeting with Robert there. However, it turns out that Winnie invited him. Winnie asks about Annie and Corcoran doesn’t say anything. Winnie tells Corcoran that they are not done, but he says that they are. He leaves and goes to Annie, who is in the hotel with Molly and Maguire. He tells Annie that they will guard her until they could find another place to hide her. He leaves and Maguire tries to get fresh with Molly. She tells him that she will “reward” him later and says that they have to keep Annie safe first.
Corcoran goes to the Nunnery and Sister Agnes Clare tells him that he needs to pray for help. He ignores that and leaves. At the Morehouse home, Robert tells Winnie that they will do something. Norton, Robert’s father comes in and finds out that Robert cut his profit by thirds. He tells Winnie that he wants to buy Five Points and leaves. Robert tells him that Norton feels that they are going to have a benefit to buy Five Points and put who they want to live there. Robert says that they need someone else to buy the properties with their money. In another town, Mathew Freeman calls out to his wife Sarah and tells her that she needs to be able to go outside.

Norton meets with Winnie and asks about the progress of the purchase of the church. He tells Norton that he is close and will buy it for $100,000.

He tells him that Corcoran needs him. He gets there and helps him with his leg.
The man who asked Molly where Corcoran was comes up and introduces himself as John Riley, Annie’s father. He comes in and Corcoran doesn’t give him correct information on where Annie by telling him that he doesn’t know where she is. He tells O’Brian that he could take him to his grave. Maguire points out that Riley is a liar from the drink he took of the alcohol that he has never had before. Elizabeth goes to the Reverend and says that she wants to surprise her husband. He agrees. Corcoran asks Annie about Riley and she tells him that Riley is her husband and says that when she was 10-years-old, Riley says that he can marry her. She says that the Contessa said that the men would be nice. She cries and tells him that she doesn’t want to go back to Riley. He says that he promises that he won’t. Corcoran says that they need to move Annie. She says that she will help him and tells him that he needs to kill Winnie. She reaches on his private parts and he says that he doesn’t want her to do that, but doesn’t tell her to stop.
Later, O’Brian tells Riley that he is her husband and that he forced her to marry him. They tell him to get out of town. At the Contessa, Molly tells her that Corcoran told her to send her there.
