Mr Hyde is the second episode of the first series of Jekyll and Hyde.


Robert follows the advice of Lily and Max to seek answers in his grandfather's house.


Flashback to Ceylon: Captain Dance interrogates Robert's foster parents, demanding to know where Robert is? When Dance has his answer, he kills them both. In the chaos Ravi, Robert's younger brother, escapes into the night and straight into the arms of the Police – who arrest him.

Robert wakes up in Bella's room in The Empire, not as Hyde, but as Jekyll. His wound has miraculously healed. Not knowing where to turn to he visits Lily. She persuades him that the answers to his personal mystery may lie with his inheritance. So they explore the old Jekyll house with Max Utterson.

In Ceylon Ravi trusts no one and refuses to cooperate with the Police. Now his one purpose is to get to England and fulfill his father's promise to give Robert his true family history. So when a fellow prisoner escapes – naturally enough Ravi escapes too. Meanwhile, Bulstrode and MIO have news of Dance's outrage in Ceylon. They know the Captain is en route for London and hatch a plan to use Robert as bait in a Tenebrae trap. Dance, for his part, has his focus firmly on Jekyll and is determined to kill anyone who might help the confused young hero.

When Robert shares his tales of the previous night, Max is determined to go and play detective. He escorts Robert to "The Empire" and uncovers the fact that "Garson" was lab assistant to Robert's grandfather. Garson refuses to crack under questioning, but when he heads home aoer work he's cornered by Dance's hired assassins. Hyde swoops in to save the old man, but not out of charity: Hyde wants answers. He drags Garson back to the old Jekyll house and the old man reveals the secret of Jekyll senior's experiments – and the basement laboratory he conducted them in.
