Lady Sarah,her credit cut off by her husband,is living with Garrow and learning to cook for him. The young lawyer's reputation attracts the custom of Ann Hadfield,whose discontented ex-soldier husband James shot at the king and is charged with treason. Hadfield claims he had no murderous intent but wanted to be a martyr to provoke rebellion,prompting Garrow to plead insanity for his client. After a visit to Bedlam to learn about lunacy Garrow submits that it may strike the sufferer intermittently,to the horror of the establishment figures who fear it will reflect on the king's own condition. However,after evidence from Anne and a shock reaction from Hadfield,Garrow wins his case whilst Sarah sets about taking legal steps to retrieve her child.
