Threat of plague brings Barakat into conflict with Effendi Red. Meanwhile, Manel must now prove her commitment to the rebels by undertaking a dangerous mission.

Threat of plague from outlying villages and how to deal with it brings the Inquisitor Barakat (Hiran Abeysekera) into conflict with the ailing regent Effendi Red (Sagar Arya).

Meanwhile, Manel (Aiysha Hart) - having failed in the task given to her by the rebels - must now prove her commitment to the cause by undertaking a more dangerous mission. One that brings her face to face with a deadly secret at the heart of this fanatical regime.
