On returning to the presbytery, Bunty and Mrs McCarthy find it in a mess, the key stolen. Considering Flambeau's letter, Father Brown realises that the key could open the safe which holds The Iron Crown. Eager to inform the Bishop, Father Brown gets the train to Gloucester and is unsurprised to find his old frenemy alive and well waiting for him onboard. Can Father Brown manage to protect the crown and redeem Flambeau once and for all?
