While Doctor Hazlett is looking for the lead in an amateur play about a falsely accused witch's burning, Mariah Osborn arrives and auditions. Some people believe she's an actual witch, and she gets blamed for every crime or weirdness from then on. That includes when Circuit Court Judge Willard Clinton was pushed from the bell tower and also the fire at insurance agent Nate Parsons's home. Jessica digs into both crimes' hidden past and connects it all with a jewel theft years ago from Charles and Lydia Winthrop.

Lydia Winthrop tells Jessica that her ring has been in her family for two generations (mother-daughter), but she later says the "ring was given to [her] by [her] great-grandmother." That would make it four generations, if the ring had originally belonged to her great-grandmother. See more
