Moriarty the Patriot Season 2 Episode 8 Spoilers

In episode 7, We are taken back to William and Louis’ childhood at the orphanage. They discover that an aristocrat named Baxter has swindled £300 out of the orphanage with the promise of constructing a new building. William reaches out to Baxter and gives him £300 to take over the debt from the orphanage and an additional £300 to start the construction. According to the agreement, if Baxter fails to pay the £600 he owes, he will have to give William a pound of his flesh.

Baxter predictably doesn’t pay, and the case goes to court. After William demands a pound of flesh from Baxter, it initially plays out like in William’s Shakespeare’s play, ‘The Merchant of Venice,’ with the judge stating that William can’t take blood along with the flesh as the agreement was for the latter. But William introduces a caveat to the story and brings a waiter from a restaurant that Baxter frequents as his witness. He asks the waiter when Baxter orders his steaks if he also asks the blood to be removed. When the waiter answers in the negative, Williams asks Baxter if his (Baxter) rules do not apply to what he eats why it should be applicable in court. Seeing William approaching him with a knife in his hand, a terrified Baxter hands over his entire fortune to the young boy.

As the episode ends, it is revealed that Charles Augustus Milverton has found the records of this case. In episode 8, it will likely be revealed that the Moriarties consciously left the records to be found so that they would know who was targeting them. Realizing that Milverton is their newest foe, the Moriarties might begin the preparation to eliminate him.
