He is introduced to the two women important to Sam. The first is his wife. Adare is surprised to recognize Lady Henrietta "Hattie" Considine (Bergman), a fellow aristocrat and family friend of his, who had eloped with her riding instructor. Evidently Samson is said instructor. He learns that Samson's crime was killing her brother Dermot in a duel. He had been sentenced to seven years of imprisonment in Australia. [[spoiler: Henrietta later confesses that Dermot had tried to kill them both and SHE was the one who killed him in self-defense. Samson volunteered in TakingTheHeat for her.]] Henrietta left her family and fended for herself while waiting for his release. The years of hardship took their toll. She is still beautiful but a LadyDrunk. Lately she has been suffering from {{Hallucinations}} and might be [[SanitySlippage loosing her sanity]], The other woman is Milly (Leighton), the housekeeper. She is a HypercompetentSidekick type who keeps the household staff in order. Her employers have come to rely on her more and more over the years. She is devoted to Sam but openly disdainful of Henrietta. She has also largely supplanted Henrietta as the Lady of the House. Milly is infatuated with Samson and would like to be his second wife. The hallucinations of Henrietta may be the result of an old-fashioned {{Gaslighting}} operation. [[spoiler: They are. Milly also has a plan B: overdosing Henrietta on sleeping medicine.]]
