As the city buzzes with anticipation over a pending execution, Penance (Ann Skelly) grapples with a moral calling at odds with Amalia's plan. With the two women at a crossroads, the Orphans must decide whom to follow.
While Mundi seeks justice, Amalia and her most trusted advisers make a list of potential enemies. Harriet, Primrose, and the other Orphans attempt to decipher a message. Later, Amalia exposes an unexpected threat.
Penance creates an amplifier to spread Mary's song across the city - but first, Mary must find her elusive voice. As danger mounts against her group, Amalia propositions an unlikely ally and sets out to expand the Orphanage's reach.
With the city reeling from Maladie's opera debut, Mundi takes a personal stake in tracking her down. Amalia launches an investigation of her own and the charitable Lavinia Bidlow seeks to destigmatize the Touched at a society event.
Three years after an inexplicable event suddenly equips them with extraordinary abilities, Amalia True and Penance Adair work to protect their kind from widespread, deepening antipathy. Meanwhile, police inspector Frank Mundi Ben Chaplin investigates a string of murders at the hands of a reportedly Touched and highly dangerous serial killer named Maladie.
