Flambeau (John Light) is incarcerated under suspicion of murder. When Father Brown (Mark Williams) visits him he denies killing his cohort Flynn (Callum Dixon) and asks the priest to hear his confession if he's convicted.

At the presbytery, Mrs McCarthy (Sorcha Cusack) thinks that Flynn is still alive and has framed Flambeau. Father Brown leaves the surveillance to her and Bunty (Emer Kenny) while he attends Flambeau's pre-trial hearing.
