- Program Description
Hetty investigates Maurika Rome (Kate Layden), a spiritualist who is suspected of using seances -- and blackmail -- to expropriate the savings of the recently widowed. A completely skeptical Hetty goes undercover as Mrs. Lola Hattersley, inventing an imaginary late husband whom she wishes to contact. When some of the medium's predictions later seem to come true, Hetty begins to wonder if Rome isn't the real thing -- until "Mr. Hattersley's" illegitimate daughter shows up demanding money. The case seems well in hand until Geoffrey's secret romance with Rome's daughter Sara (Tabitha Wady) threatens to compromise the medium's arrest -- and nearly causes his departure from the agency.
