Eleanor needs her father’s help to secure the weapons needed for the raid, so going against Miranda’s wishes he is brought out of hiding and back to town in order to meet up with someone who will be able to supply them with what is required. It's a huge gamble of course, much could go wrong in the trust they are putting in each other, but it give us some valuable insights into the lives of the three main characters involved, Eleanor, Richard and Mr Scott, along the way. They have had a long history together over the years and are able to subtlety exert pressure on each other in ways only a family unit can.
