Storyline

Back in London after a false medical scare, Lewis Eliot is ready to celebrate. He drops in on Sheila who informs him that she has fallen in love with Hugh Smith. He seems a likable enough fellow but Lewis feels it's his obligation to inform him that Sheila is mentally unbalanced, a schizoid, and that he needs to prepare himself for that if they are to marry. Hugh reconsiders which is fine with Lewis especially when Sheila agrees to marry him. Career-wise, Lewis' future appears secure. When George Passant and some of his friends are charged with fraud, the solicitor suggests that Lewis seek a leader and he turns to H.G., who has taken silk. H.G. does a fabulous job and all are acquitted but the judgment doesn't sit well with Lewis who knows one of their clients was in fact guilty. H.G. suggests the he might be better suited to life as a legal academic. With his marriage in turmoil, Lewis thinks he might be right. Written by garykmcd
