Things look very bad for Wickham as Hardcastle learns that he fathered Louisa's baby. Meanwhile Louisa tells Elizabeth that Denny was arranging for her to have the baby adopted by the woman seen in the woods - although Louisa refused - and that Fitzwilliam was listening to them. Wickham goes for trial, defended by Alveston - who will later marry Georgina. To the horror of snobbish patroness Lady Catherine De Burgh Darcy goes to give evidence for Wickham, seeing the woman from the woods, who he recognizes as Wickham's sister. The jury return a guilty verdict but Elizabeth is not convinced and conducts her own investigation to find out who really killed Denny.
