Pushed out of a second-floor window by the dastardly J. Haviland Hunter (Fred C. Jones) in chapter 11 of A Woman in Grey, Ruth Hope (Arline Pretty) once again escapes death, this time by landing safely in an awning down below. Left alone in the apartment with the dead Paula Wynne (Margaret Fielding), Hunter quickly calls the police and accuses Ruth of murder. After determining the dead woman's identity as Amory's niece, the officer in charge overhears Hunter plotting with his henchmen (Jack Manning and Walter Chapin), but when he attempts to arrest the villains, Hunter makes his escape. Out on the street, the villain encounters a mystery woman who addresses him as "Mr. Haynes," and claims to be able to secure the Amory fortune. At the Amory mansion, Ruth learns from Ralph Gordon (Jack Newton) that Hunter is the son of Mrs. Haynes, the Amorys' late housekeeper, and that he suspects Ruth herself to be either Florence Haynes or the vanished maid Mary Edwards. Meanwhile, Hunter/Haynes and the mystery woman enter the Amory mansion through a tunnel from the garden and the villain seizes Ruth. Facing the mystery woman, a surprised Ruth exclaims, "You!" Determined to learn the true identity of both women, Hunter attempts to remove the bracelet that covers Ruth's telltale scar.
