It was used as the kitchen at the Duke of Sandringham’s home, Belhurst Manor. While here Murtagh learns that Sandringham organised the the attack in Paris that resulted in the rape of Mary Hawkins. He swiftly decapitates the English Duke. Presenting the head, he announces to Mary and Claire “I kept my word. I lay my vengeance at your feet”.
