As Jack's mind takes an increasingly dark turn after the fire, Pastor Shand finds himself in similarly dire circumstances. With justice looking unlikely, a despondent Jack Irish severs his long-held ties with nobility and takes righteousness into his own hands. Back in Manila, Linda's hazardous investigation yields unexpected results.
