Storyline

After spending the night with Madame Kali, Sir Malcolm returns home to learn that his wife has taken her own life. His reaction however is not what you would expect. Everyone agrees that he is acting strangely and clearly not himself. Ethan gets a visits from the sole survivor of the attack at the Mariner's Inn who makes it clear that he will not not give up and will continue to pursue him. Dorian Grey throws a ball, a coming out party for Angelique, and invites Vanessa and Victor Frankenstein. Lily attends as well and is the belle of the ball drawing a good deal of attention from Dorian which upsets both Angelique and Victor. Vanessa attends alone but has an encounter - real or imagined - with Mrs. Poole's daughters. Meanwhile Ethan, who declined attending the ball with Vanessa, turns to Sembene to help him with what will happen that evening. Written by garykmcd
