A young woman, Stella Brooks, is murdered at the Whitechapel Hospital shortly after giving birth and her baby taken. The woman has an unusual deformity that leads Reid to freak shows and, seeking help from Joseph Merrick, finds him terrified after an unbeknown visit from Inspector Jedediah Shine who also appears involved in the case. Jackson discovers Long Susan is in debt to Silas Duggan (Frank Harper), another friend of Shine's. Suspect John Goode was twice an inmate of Dr Karl Crabbe's (Anton Lesser) asylum. Merrick, who can exonerate Reid, dies mysteriously in his sleep and the murder of Shine's sergeant is unproven.
