In St. Louis, actress Lorna Langton and her manager, David Fields, arrive at the docks and she goes aboard the Enterprise
. Grey greets her and she asks to charter his ship for a trip to Red Bluff. He points out that there's nothing at Red Bluff but an abandoned trading post, but Lorna insists on leaving immediately. Grey recognizes her by name but says that half his crew is ashore and he doesn't have a head of steam. However, when Lorna offers him $2,000, Grey takes an interest. He wants to know why she's making the trip but Lorna says that she'll tell him en route. If he doesn't like it, Grey can return to St. Louis and keep the money. Grey accepts the charter and goes to get his crew, and Lorna turns to Luke Cragg, who is sitting on the deck, and tells him that the rest is up to him...Read the full recap
Grey: We need steam, we're going upriver.
Carney Kohler: What? What in blazes for, Captain? Why do we have to build up a stoke?
Grey: To transport Miss Lorna Langston.
Carney Kohler: Lorna...? Lorna Langton? Is she as beautiful as they say?
Grey: She's very pretty. But she doesn't have your sunny disposition.
Lorna Langton: Well, then we have at least to St. Louie to see if he remembers anything.
David Fields: Well certainly, Lorna. Ask him as many questions as you please. But keep it on a friendly although impersonal basis.
Grey: Oh, that's fine. That's just great. Pester the boy with questions but don't bother being nice to him. He might be someone else's child.
In the dining room, Lorna tells Grey that Bobby was abducted six years ago. However, later when Bobby bites Lorna's hand, Grey says that "After seven years, why, he's mostly Indian." Outside, Josiah also says that the chief told him that that they took the boy in seven years ago..
Grey: Well, you see, a Sioux warrior thinks, like Samson, you cut his hair, you cut his strength.
Samson is the legendary Israelite strongman, whose story is told in the Old Testament. His strength derives from his long hair, and is lost when his hair is cut.
