The area is hit by a series of robberies in which safes are blown open. Madoc Faulkner, Drake's former commanding officer, comes to see him and is bitter about the treatment of ex-soldiers now fallen on hard times who are seen as scroungers. Reid's inquiries lead him to George Doggett, another ex-soldier, who agrees to a deal and tells him when the next robbery will take place. Drake, now aware that the perpetrators are his old comrades and disgruntled former soldiers, finds his loyalties torn and opts to put duty before old friendships.

You see, I, I'm, you know I'm not a rich man. But what I cannot offer you in wealth and luxury, I, Miss Rose, I offer you my whole heart, for always. For when I look upon you, I feel a mercy I thought lost to me. And I would work as hard as any man is able and harder to provide every day for your happiness and to be a better man, if you would, that is to say if, if you might consider doing me the utmost honor of being at my side.
