Monica befriends Kate Prescott, whose son has been accused of a brutal murder. Angered by Thomas’ acquittal, Leonard Page–the victim’s father–tries to force the Prescotts to leave town. Tess advises the man to let God avenge his daughter’s death, but he refuses to listen, even when Kate herself begs him to stop the vendetta. When she discovers some of the victim’s belongings in Thomas’s room, however, she doubts his innocence and issues a statement to the press. He responds by leaving town. But once the police apprehend the real murderer, Kate despairs because of her betrayal.

Revealing herself, Monica tells the distraught mother her mistake was trusting evidence rather than faith. Tess meanwhile returns to Page’s house, urging him to let the healing process begin. Afterwards, Monica wonders what will become of Kate’s son. Tess reveals that Mrs. Angeli, the kindly bus driver who gave Kate moral support during the trial is herself an “advance angel” who will watch over Thomas as he starts his new life in Los Angeles.
