In his pursuit of tracking down the killer in order to save the boys, Corky inadvertently stands up Robert Morehouse, as his best man, at his wedding.

Dr. Freeman returns to the Five Points and Sara confronts her demons of the past by knocking down the lamp post where her brothers were hung during the Draft Riots.
