Chon is healed, gives 20 bucks toward Uncle’s patients.
Sparks, Killingsworth, and Callahan have been released from jail. Killingsworth is out for blood, but Sparks has convinced her that breakfast would do us all good. Promptly, Killingsworth sees someone she calls Mrs. Gates, the former mayor of Portland’s widow. Killingsworth has business with her and goes to try and meet with her, leaving Callahan and Sparks to head back to the Portland Hotel for breakfast.
Dr Hendricks is pulled away by the bellman to heal them, and questioning the police as to why they were there and how they knew where to find Chon. As he’s tending to Barnabus Nife, he questions Nife – who doesn’t do much in the way of giving new information, save for telling Hendrick that he’s putting up a 100 dollar reward for the live capture of Chon.
Mrs. Killingsworth has caught up to Mrs. Gates. She waves her hanky to get the woman’s attention, calling out to her. The woman shows concern for Killingsworth and Killingsworth plays up the distress. Sparks and Callahan are seated in the pation in the Le Gland and is noticed by Killingsworth, who is having breakfast with Mrs. Gates. And Mrs. Gates responds to the name of John Scott. She is also fascinated by the mention of the Goose. She tells the whole story to Mrs. Gates who believes her story. But then Mrs. Gates tells Killingsworth that she believes her husband is still alive even though there was a funeral. And Sparks & Callahan are just eating.
Dr Hendrick inquires into the whereabouts of the others and the hotel couldn’t find the check in book. He’s given a sicount to his breakfast and is accused by a gentleman who has rough conversation about the current events. Hendricks goes up to his room.
Killingsworth and Mrs. Gates are still conversing and Mrs Gates tells Killingworth that she doesn’t trust the new Governor, who is the one her husband was running against in the last election. She tells Gates about her new aquaintances, Sparks, Hendricks, and Callahan would be available to help on the case.
Chon is woken by a sound and Javier & Wang telling him that the police are outside and to be quiet. A knock at the door sounds and Chon starts looking for a place to hide and sees a lumpy mat that is a trap door. Wang tells him that the door leads to the Shanghai tunnels. Chon takes to hiding to corners, the police try to see if someone is home, and even pretend to leave, though they manage to elude.
Dr Hendricks is summoned to dine with mrs gates and killingsworth. he is offered to work on the case. He accepts then Mrs Killingsworth persuades Mrs Gates to meet with Sparks and Callahan. They are led over and are now employed to help with the case.
