Toronto is hit with a series of bank robberies where the lone gunman not only takes the money but kisses a pretty girl before running off. Pesky Toronto Gazette reporter Patty Glenn is all over it which is proving to be more sensational than the the recent vampire stories. Oddly however, the stolen money turns up on the doorstep of a local orphanage. When the thief robs the same bank for a second time and kisses the same girl, Annabelle Rose, Murdoch begins to suspect that he may have taken a particular liking to the girl. When the bandit robs the bank for a third but kills Annabelle with a revolver, Murdoch thinks he may have the solution. Meanwhile, Dr. Julia Ogden's vivacious sister, Ruby, is back in Toronto to attend Julia's upcoming marriage to Dr. Darcy Garland. She's not convinced that Julia and William no longer have feelings for one another.
