Outline

With the assassination attempt failed and Detective Allan Pinkerton hot on his trail, Frank hides out in the Greens’ basement. As Silas recuperates, Frank slashes the steward’s throat, and Jed and Byron use a blood transfusion to save his life. Upon regaining consciousness, Silas identifies Frank as his attacker. Emma discovers Frank’s deception and angrily throws him out, and her determination to continue working as a nurse, even for Union soldiers, is strengthened. Jed and Mary’s blossoming romance sours with the arrival of Charlotte Jenkins, an outspoken abolitionist sent to help stem a smallpox epidemic among the contraband population. Realizing that Jed’s prejudices kept him from even noticing this epidemic, Mary curtly ends the relationship. James is released from jail due to Emma’s intervention on his behalf to Lincoln, and is infuriated when he learns that Jimmy signed the loyalty oath in his stead. A contraband named Caleb shows up in Alexandria claiming to be Aurelia’s husband and father of her 7-year-old child and son Gabriel. Samuel, wanting Aurelia for himself, denies that he ever knew her. Mary takes ill, developing symptoms of typhoid fever.
