Macdonald to build a railway from Victoria to Nanaimo, to distract B.C. voters from the fact that the promise of a trans-continental railway which brought them into confederation has been delayed. The last spike of the E & N is driven and Robbie and Sir John descend to the lowest level of the Dunsmuir pits where they consummate their deal in a two day orgy of bonded whiskey, cold chicken and much quoting of the bard (Robbie Burns, that is).In a devastating final scene, the family secret emerges from the closet of the Dunsmuirs’ castle, Craigdarroch, on the eve of its inauguration.

The scene is set for the furies to deliver the family up to the curse Robbie and Joan brought with them from their native Scotland.
