One day she hears a noise on the porch of their Victorian mansion and goes to investigate. She meets a charming and strangely familiar young man, Mr. Barrington (Brian McCardie) who is riding a penny farthing bicycle. Barrington becomes a regular visitor and Lila's mental wellbeing is soon in a state of decline as a result. Sam, alarmed at his wife's plight, eventually finds is way back to the orphanage Lila was raised in, looking for clues. Mr. Barrington, meanwhile, turns from a charming larrikin into a demanding and menacing little rascal, intent on exacting a payment from Lila for a supposed wrongdoing.
