When a man returns to his hometown with his son, a long-dead woman returns to claim him for jilting her years earlier. A moderately complex tale of the undoing of a man who was mean to those around him and the son on which he preyed.

The illegitimate son of a baron enlists the aid of his mother's ghost to extort his birthright from his obnoxious father. The illegitimate son of a baron enlists the aid of his mother's ghost to extort his birthright from his obnoxious father.

I found this episode hard to hang on to – lots of characters to sort out. A young man, tired of bowing to his father’s tyrannical orders, seeks strength from his past and seeks help from his dead mother. He capitalizes on his father’s gambling addiction and seeks redress for past wrongs his father committed.
