Titre original : The Man Who Forgot His Past
Dr. Leonard houses Albert in an unpleasant room because nobody knows who he really is, who is his family, where he lives. And Albert is unable to tell, because he lost his memory. Candy realizes she cannot help in that department. She does not know his family name, nor his address. What they do know is that he was a victim of a bomb explosion on a train in Italy, protected Poope with his body, and that there was a spy on the train. He was brought to St Joanna Hospital, because the only two things he repeated over and over was America and Chicago. Candy cries foul whenever people suspect him of being a spy, but the prejudice remains. The Cornwell brothers and Annie manage to distract Candy for a while when they surprise her with Patricia waiting for her in the garden. Patricia's remarks about London of their mutual past and London of now in war, brings back memories of Albert's situation and Candy breaks down crying, explaining Albert's plight. They wish to see Albert themselves, but can do little for either Candy or Albert. Candy goes back to work, intent on making things more comfortable for Albert when she finds him awake finally. But Albert does not recognize either Candy or Poope. He does not even know his own name.
