Moriarty the Patriot Season 2 Episode 5 Spoilers
In episode 4, a new evil roams the alleys of Whitechapel, Jack the Ripper, whose victims are exclusively prostitutes. Bonde settles into his identity, making Moran recognize him as a man. William sends Moran, Louis, Fred, and Bonde to retrieve the content of a safe deposit box from the bank. They wonder why they all have to be involved in this trivial job. While they are there, robbers hit the bank, knocking out the guard and taking hostages.
Moran helps Bonde realize that taking the initiative and creativity are two of the most important things required of him as part of the crew. They know if the situation gets out of hand at the bank, Sherlock Holmes will get involved, and he might find out that the Moriarty crew has been there. Inspired by what Moran said, Bonde uses muzzle flashes from Moran’s gun to knock all the robbers out and then gives the credits to the guard. This brings Moran and Bonde closer. Fred tells Louis that he recognized the robbers, making him realize that William planned the entire thing.
When they get back to the house, Moriarty brothers’ old teacher, Jack Reinfeld, is waiting for them. It turns out that the box they retrieved from the bank belongs to Reinfeld and contains the tools of his profession. About fifty years ago, Reinfeld garnered a fierce reputation as Jack the Ripper during the First Anglo-Afghan War. During the Moriarty brothers’ stay at the Rockwell mansion, he taught them how to kill people. The episode ends as William deduces that there are multiple imposters currently going around murdering disenfranchised women and vows to show them who are the true devils in the town.
In episode 5, William might figure out that the people posing as Jack the Ripper wants a revolt by the Whitechapel militia. On William’s suggestion, the real Jack the Ripper might pretend to kill a woman, prompting the militia to unite with the police.
