Losing his job is not Mark's only problem. Sofia knows his truth. Mark tells her everything. Even about Siobhan and the baby. She eventually forgives him. It is also time for Mark to reconcile with Sean. Mark's situation seems to get better still when JP. Morgan arrives. When told the reason why his chief metallurgist has been fired, Morgan has him immediately reinstated. Mark starts looking for a viable alternative to the double hull, an alternative he finds in higher bulkheads. General Elections are in sight. Home Rule for Ireland is at stake. The possibility that London putting a stop controlling the island is strongly opposed by the Protestant minority, which fears the power the Catholic majority would get. Emily persuades her brother Michael to stand for Parliament, and Pirrie helps and supports his main counterpart in the shipyard. Sofia wants to make the relationship with Mark public. Mark knows that this would mean new tensions that could ostracize him. Above all, though, Mark is trying to protect Sofia. She would be fired immediately. But Sofia is independent. She is tired of Belfast. She goes back to studying, trying to create a better future for herself. A sad coldness slowly builds between them and, quite unexpectedly, Mark has news of his daughter.
