Duke recovers from his paralysis with intensive
physical therapy. Anna meanwhile struggles to convince a stubborn Duke to turn
state's evidence against the mob. Refusing to do so would mean a long jail sentence for
Duke. After realizing Anna is setting herself up as bait with her plan to tell the press
she will testify against the mob, Duke finally testifies before a grand jury and sulkily
awaits news of his sentencing.
Sean and Robert arrange for the lovers to stay his Sean's
secret room until Duke's sentencing. Duke tells Anna that she and Robin will be safe now.
What he doesn't tell her is that he and Robert blackmailed Angus to call off his hitmen by
promising to reveal the secret of L'Orlean. Angus promises to protect Anna and Robin in
exchange for Duke promising never to reveal the truth.
Since Duke revealed to Angus that
he was his son, Angus is also more inclined to protect Duke, Anna, and Robin.
Given a light prison sentence, Duke is sent to the same prison as Angus. There,
he frets about Anna and Robin's safety as well as how he's going to pay off the
heavy fines for his illegal activities. The stubborn scotsman refuses to marry
Anna until he's debt-free. With tearful goodbyes, Robert returrns to Australia
assured that Duke's hold over Angus will protect Anna and Robin.
Who's Sister Camilla
At the prison, Duke and Angus become upset after realizing that the Jerome mob
have figured out that Duke is his son. Angus firmly tells Duke that no one must ever learn
the L'Orlean secret, particularly Duke's involvement. Unknownst to Duke and Angus,
Camillia has arrived in PC. Her convent had sent her to speak to the GH administrative
staff about the possibility of an exchange training program. Steve offers her a position
on staff and she's given use of the Quartermaine gatehouse.
At the Q mansion, she faints
after seeing Duke's photo in a newspaper and is taken to GH where she wakes up unable to
speak at first. Recovering, Camillia pleads with Tony not to report her fainting incident
as it could jeopardize her chances to become a nun. Tony agrees and invites her to dinner
at his house.
Tania, who's babysitting Robin that day,
offers to take Camillia to the library. Camillia finds an article with a picture of Duke
and tears out his picture. Robin, who's just come up behind her, asks Camillia why she
just tore out the picture of uncle Duke. Intrigued, Camillia asks if Robin knows Duke.
Sure, the little girl replies, he's going to be my daddy when he marries my mommie.
Camillia's speechless and is intrigued later when she meets Anna. [transcript]
Attempt on Duke's Life
Duke prevents a knife attack but his attempts to keep the
incident quiet are squashed when the story makes the papers. At police headquarters,
Frisco and Anna are shocked to read the headlines, "Duke Lavery Attacked at
Knifepoint in Infirmary". Anna rushes over to the prison to check on Duke. He
stonewalls when Anna becomes curious that Angus saved his life in the knife attack, as she
knows nothing about Angus being his father.
Angus is later shocked when he gets a visitor,
his estranged daughter Camilla. Soon to be taking her vows to become a nun, she had been
hidden away at a convent for years, not nowing her father's location until she recently
got a letter from him with the PC postmark. Angus convinces his tearful daughter that he
will protect Duke and that the two have made amends. Visiting Duke later, the two agree
that Angus must never know about their past relationship. A worried Duke begs her to
return to the convent after she remiences, fearful that Camillia will start to remember
what happened in L'Orlean.
Jonathon and Evan Jerome
Needing a way to get to Duke, a mobster named Jonathon
arranges to be the suspect in a hit-and-run case. Frisco sends him to the state
penitentiary, where he plots with other prisoners to get to Duke and Angus. The newcomer
apparently knew them years ago.
Unfortunately, Camillia decides to stay in PC.
Alone at the gatehouse, Camilla pulls out an old photograph of a group of people in party
attaire- herself, Angus, Duke, and a man who's name she doesn't remember. This man looks
just like Jonathon. She also starts to remember tidbits of her past. Three years ago, she
and Duke met, were instantly attracted to one another, and flirted with one another.
party is held at her home one evening and Duke is invited. A bearded man named Evan is
also invited. Before she can introduce Duke to her father Angus, an upset Duke pulls her
aside after realizing who her father is. Duke stuns her by claiming that Angus is his
father, thereby making them half-siblings, and that they can never be romantically
involved. She remembers rushing upstairs to her room crying, but nothing else until she
wakes up at the convent. Duke and Angus refuse to fill in the gaps, pleading with her to
leave the past alone and return to the safety of the convent.
Duke and Angus figure out that Jonathon is
Evan Jerome's cousin and that he's plotting to kill them. Worried about Camillia's safety,
Duke gets her to move into the penthouse, but he doesn't tell Anna. Missing Duke, Anna
goes to the penthouse and is furious to find Camilla sleeping in Duke's bed. The nervous
nun replies that Duke told her to stay there and that Anna would have to ask Duke for
answers to her questions. Duke surprises Anna with news that Camillia is his
