In the course of time, Hanshaw wins the young wife, and the doctor, returning home unexpectedly one evening, finds her in his "friend's" arms. In spite of his wife's prayer for forgiveness, Brant makes Hanshaw take the woman, divorces her and she becomes the latter's wife. In the years that intervene, Brant has become a famous surgeon, and the woman suffers her rightful punishment for perfidy through Hanshaw's cruel treatment. Ten years after the break and its forced cementing, Dr. Brant is visiting a friend in his summer home on the seashore. One dark and stormy night a man rushes up and states that the stranger in the new bungalow a mile up the shore is dying of appendicitis. Instead of sending for a surgeon across the Bay, Brant's friend induces him to take the case. When the latter arrives at the house, judge of his astonishment when he comes face to face with his former wife. It is Hanshaw who is dying. Now ensues a dramatic struggle; the woman still loves Brant. She urges him to let Hanshaw die. She says, "His life is in your hands tonight. Let him die and take me back." The woman's mellow beauty, and the growing warmth of the old love that has never cooled, sets Brant's brain reeling. He catches the woman in his arms and seemingly surrenders to her demand. Then he goes in to minister to the ailing man. He locks the door behind him and is for the time fighting with himself for the helpless one, assisted only by the maid. The woman waits without, hopeful and joyous, seemingly triumphant. Hanshaw will die and she will have Brant back again. Dr. Brant returns to her looking white and haggard. Has he let him die? The woman flies to him. Gently, but firmly, Brant puts her aside. His fight with himself has been for justice. He tells her, "Madame, I have done my best. Your husband will live."
