Prince Leopold is an English teenager, son of Queen Victoria who after finding Bea Cook, helped her to solve paranormal mysteries along with her friends.

History[]

In the royal palace across the city, Leo, the youngest son of Queen Victoria, is also celebrating his birthday. Because his haemophilia leaves him vulnerable to injury, he is rarely allowed outside. But as it is his birthday, he asks for permission to leave the palace to see the city. The request is granted, but he is accompanied by his servant Daimler and forced to stay in the carriage.

In the cellar of the Duck and Quiver, Bea confronts Billy about his fighting. Billy insists that they need the money to pay for a doctor for Jessie, and to pay back to their landlord, Mrs Hudson, who is threatening to kick them out. Bea becomes upset when Spike suggests they consider the workhouse. During the conversation, Jessie slips out of the cellar and wanders into the street in a trance. She sees a sinister figure in an alley, and runs in front of Leo's carriage, with Bea saving her at the last moment. Daimler gets out and scolds Bea, but she stands up to him, impressing Leo. The carriage drives off as Bea comforts Jessie.

Leo meets Bea

Leo met Bea where she remembered having seen her before.

Leo, having snuck out of the palace with the intention of seeing Bea again, manages to find the Duck and Quiver. He introduces himself to Bea, who is reading the documents about the missing babies. She explains the investigation to him. Leo notices that all the missing babies were born on the same day in the same hospital, and suggests they check the birth registry at the town hall to prevent another kidnapping. They discover that six babies were born that day. With four already kidnapped and one having died at birth, they only have one baby left to check on. Leo suggests that someone must be controlling the birds.

Bea and her friends go to confront the kidnapper. Jessie asks to come, but Bea flatly refuses, and expresses concern for Jessie's health. She leaves angrily with Spike. Bea gives Billy a decoy baby, and he climbs into the room to place it in the crib. However, while he is distracted by trying to prevent the mother from entering, a raven flies in and grabs the infant. The teens chase the raven, which delivers the baby to a hooded man. Billy confronts him about the kidnapping, but the man claims the baby is his. When Billy moves to grab it, the man releases a swarm of birds from beneath his cloak and disappears. Bea realizes that the man is looking for his lost child, and connects it to the sixth baby that died in the hospital. She reviews the birth register, and learns that the mysterious man is Arthur Hilton, the head ornithologist at the London Zoo.

Jessie enters man's mind

Jessie was able to enter Hilton's mind and access her powers.

Bea, Leo, and Billy find Hilton's hideout in the zoo's aviary, but are suspicious when they see no birds in the structure. They confront Hilton, and Bea tries to convince him that his baby is dead. However, he insists that someone swapped out the infant, and summons the birds to attack the group. Jessie and Spike arrive and manage to run inside just as Bea closes the doors. As the birds dive-bombing the windows in an attempt to enter, Jessie runs over to touch Hilton. She enters his memories, and learns that after her death the baby was taken to the morgue without Hilton ever getting the chance to see her. Unable to cope with his grief, he blocked the memory and fell under the delusion that his baby had been stolen. She also witnesses Hilton gain his powers through use of a spirit board. Overcome with the realization of his actions, Hilton breaks down and releases his control over the birds. Billy finds the missing babies upstairs, and Leo runs away.

Back at the Duck and Quiver, Bea convinces Spike to break in to 221B to learn more about the Doctor and what he knows. Meanwhile, she and Billy will investigate the crimes. Jessie insists on coming with them as she is the only one with psychic abilities. Billy is upset that they are working for the Doctor again, but Bea maintains that they have no choice. Meanwhile, Leo has once again managed to escape the palace with the assistance of his sister Louise. He finds the other teens just as they are leaving for the investigation. However, he gets a cold reception. Bea angrily tells him to help Billy with the interviews before storming off. Across town, a young girl who loses a tooth is shocked when she discovers that instead all of her mother's teeth have been removed.

Billy and Leo first visit the theater where one of the victims and her mother are employed. Mrs Machin explains that her daughter, Carla, had actually lost her last milk teeth several years before. The Tooth Fairy had in fact stolen all of Carla's adult teeth.

Billy and Leo ask man for clues

Billy and Leo asked John Cooper for information, but he only attacked Billy.

Billy and Leo next visit John Cooper, the father of William, the second victim. However, they fail to interview him as Cooper is immediately hostile to Billy due to his lower-class background. Billy tries to intimidate Cooper, but it fails when Cooper reveals that he is an ex-soldier and bodyguard. Billy storms off. Leo tries to calm him down, but Billy turns on Leo, venting his frustration with the upper classes looking down on him. He accuses Leo of being a "dabbler", someone who turns to slumming it with the lower classes after growing bored of a life of privilege. Leo begins to argue but falls down, revealing an inflamed knee. He asks Billy to keep his illness a secret.

Jessie goes to find Leo and Billy, leaving Bea alone to interrogate the Tooth Fairy. The woman tries to convince Bea that the two of them are the same, and insists that if Bea knew her mother had been killed she would act the same way. Outside, Jessie returns with Leo and Billy. They notice a jawbone apparently growing in the dirt. Bea joins them just in time to see a clone of Carla Machin emerge from the dirt and run off with the clone of William Cooper that Jessie saw earlier. Bea realizes the Tooth Fairy is creating clones from the teeth she stole. The group returns upstairs to try and determine the intended victim. Bea remembers that the woman earlier said her father lost everything due to the land under the building, and Leo says that the land belongs to the wealthy Duke of Winchester. He realizes that William Cooper's father, John, must be the duke's bodyguard, while the duke will that same night be sponsoring a gala at the theater where Carla Machin works. They send Billy to go warn the duke. Back at the Duck and Quiver, Leo decides to spend the night in the cellar with his friends to convince them of his intentions.

Group arrives at Mycroft's estate

The group of teenagers all walked together to Mycroft's estate.

The group arrives at Mycroft's estate after a tense morning between Billy and Leo, who did not return to the palace. Bea suggests they use the opportunity to investigate Sherlock as well as the murder. They are greeted by Mycroft's servants, who inform them that while Bea and Jessie will be posing as Mycroft's nieces, the boys will pretend to be servants. A maid shows Bea and Jessie to their rooms, where they dress for the evening. Downstairs, Leo and Billy work in a coal cellar and have another tense exchange around Bea, whom Leo realizes Billy has a crush on.

In the kitchen, Spike talks to the cook, Mrs Brown, to learn more about Sherlock. Mrs Brown reveals Sherlock left about 15 years ago after falling in with a "bad man" and moving to Baker Street. She also says that the last time she saw Sherlock was when he came back to hide something in his old room in the attic. Leo and Spike find the room, which looks like a laboratory. Higher up in the attic, they find an locked puzzle box.

Late night meeting

At the meeting late at night, the group had to investigate who had murdered Felkin.

The gang leaves, deciding to let the police deal with a straightforward case of murder. However, as they walk away they inexplicably find themselves heading back towards the house. No matter which way they go, they find themselves unable to leave the estate. Leo realizes Felkin was posed as the Eight of Swords, a Tarot card portending imprisonment. He realizes that someone is using the Tarot cards to access the Rip's power. Bea decides they need to determine why someone wanted to trap all the people there, and they return to the house.

Mycroft convenes a meeting, revealing the teenager's identity as special investigators. Crawley recognizes the spell on the house after noticing the sky has not changed for several hours. Bea and Billy set up in the library to interview the suspects. When Mrs Brown brings them tea, Bea notices an expensive bracelet on her wrist. They first interview Patricia Colman Jones, who discovered Felkin's body. She says that she had stayed up late drinking with Mrs Brown, and had found the body on her way back to bed. She also says that she saw R. P. Breakwater in the hallway. Bea goes upstairs to check on Leo, who is attempting to open the puzzle box. Together they solve the riddle, and find inside a Sherlock's grimoire, containing spells and methods to contact the dead.

Spike looks for Jessie in the attic, and tells Bea and Leo that she is an ipsissimus. Leo finds an entry for ipsissimi in the grimoire, which reveals that one can steal an ipsissimus' power by sacrificing them with dark magic. Bea realizes that the whole meeting is a trap to catch Jessie. Downstairs, Jessie is cornered by Crawley, but manages to get away. Meanwhile, the other four friends look for Jessie. Billy insists Breakwater and Dion are not behind the killings, but Bea is unconvinced. However, they soon find the pair murdered in Dion's room. Bea realizes they were lovers, explaining why Breakwater wouldn't reveal his alibi. Leo explains "The Lovers" means infatuation. Spike also notices that Dion wrote the Roman numeral XV with her foot, corresponding to the card "The Devil". Bea remembers that Mycroft was dressed up as the Devil during the ceremony earlier, and the group rushes to find him. Meanwhile, Jessie hears a woman's voice calling to her, and leaves the house under an enchantment.

Back in the cellar at the Duck and Quiver, Billy informs Bea that he has met a girl. After he leaves, she goes over to Leo, who is reading the grimoire. He finds some old photos in the back, including one of Watson with a woman whom Bea immediately recognizes. She realizes the mysterious "A" mentioned in the grimoire as Holmes' assistant was none other than her mother, Alice.

Leo goes with Bea and Jessie to visit the grave of their mother, Alice. They discuss the recent revelation that Alice had known Dr Watson and Sherlock Holmes. Leo suggests that Alice was probably an ipsissimus like Jessie, and that the two men were probably using her for her power. He shows her some entries in Sherlock's grimoire that suggest Alice had not taken part in their experiments willingly. Jessie wonders if Sherlock and Watson killed her. Bea says they need to find a way to talk to Sherlock, believing him to be the key. They return to the Duck and Quiver, but Bea becomes angry when Leo tells her he needs to leave again. He promises to meet her back at the pub at ten that night.

At the royal palace, Leo arrives to late to breakfast with his mother, the queen. His servant Daimler informs him that the queen suspects he has been sneaking out of the palace, but that Daimler managed to convince her otherwise. Leo notices guests arriving for his sister Louise's birthday, and Daimler tells him he managed to get permission for Leo to attend the party.

Leo goes to sister's birthday

Leo debuted at his sister's birthday party.

Back at the palace, Leo makes his debut at Louise's party. He is hesitant to stay too long due to his promise to meet Bea at the inn, but his attempts to leave are foiled by a girl named Eleanor.

Back in Limehouse, an opium addict gives Bea the name of a hostel where Holmes might be. Bea goes to the hostel, where the clerk gives her a mocking note from Watson. The note reveals that Watson paid off the addict, and announces that the doctor is terminating her employment. She returns to the Duck and Quiver, but Leo is still at the party and misses their meeting. Leo belatedly realizes how much he misses Bea and decides to escape. Daimler catches him on a balcony and rebukes for being ungrateful for all he has. He tells Leo he can never have a normal life due to his condition. However, to Daimler's horror Leo jumps off the balcony and runs away as Daimler calls for the guards.

Back at the Duck and Quiver, Jessie tells Billy and Spike that Clara overpowered her and ran away, though they express skepticism. They are surprised to find an injured Leo laying in a cot.

In the present, Bea settles an inebriated Holmes in a dingy room to recover. Holmes thanks her for helping him (and not taking him back to 221B), but Bea says she only wants information about her mother and the Rip. Holmes tries to impress her by deducing the type of tea that she has served him, but fails. Bea goes downstairs to check on Leo, who is still recovering from his jump from the palace balcony. He admits that there are people looking for him.

Downstairs, Bea walks in on Leo dressing, and he is ashamed of her seeing his bruises. They share a quiet moment together and dance, but it ends awkwardly and Bea leaves.

Bea comforts Leo

Bea comforted Leo, telling him he should not be ashamed of his body.

Bea brings Holmes some more tea, and sees that he has sobered up a bit. Holmes apologizes again, and insists he loved her mother. Holmes again attempts to guess the type of tea Bea served. He guesses incorrectly, but Bea humors him by pretending he gave the right answer. Bea returns to the cellar, where she asks to see Leo’s bruises. She tells Leo not to be ashamed of his body or hide anything more from her, and the two have sex.

Bea and Leo are trailing Dr Watson, hoping to learn more about his involvement with the Rip. They follow him to a hospital, where discover a number of people with missing body parts and the wounds supernaturally healed. Bea realizes this is the same pattern as in Sherlock’s last case, that of the “Collector”, which he never solved.

Leo tells everyone what he thinks

Leo told everybody he believed

Back in the Duck and Quiver’s cellar, the group meets about the case. Leo suggests that someone is using the stolen organs to build a new person. The culprit had lost their abilities when Bea’s mother closed the Rip the first time, but has now begun their task again. Billy is agitated and doesn’t want to get involved, but Bea insists they have to solve this case in order to find the Rip. Their only other option is for Jessie to find it in her nightmares, but Jessie refuses out of fear. Bea suggests they pick up where Sherlock left off on the case. The only clue he had was the mixture of Snowdonia hawkweed found at the scene of the crime. Remembering that Holmes had sent Watson to a botanist named Edith Dubois to find out more about the rare plant, she asks Leo to find Dubois’ address. This seems to anger Billy, who storms off, as does Jessie, who is upset with the group for trying to cajole her into finding the Rip herself.

Bea follows Billy, and reveals that she knows he met with Vic Collins. Billy explains that Collins told him the truth about his parents. He tells Bea that wants to hurt Collins for what he did to her, but Bea convinces him to let go of his plans for revenge by saying the group needs him. Meanwhile, Leo is heading for the records office when he sees a royal servant. He ducks into a pub to avoid him, but finds himself face-to-face with Daimler. Daimler tries to convince Leo to return to the palace. However, Leo realizes Daimler has not yet told the Queen about his escape and blackmails him into letting him stay by threatening to have him fired for negligence.

Bea, Billy, Spike, and Leo visit Edith Dubois’ house and find it abandoned. It has also been partially ransacked, presumably by Watson. Bea finds photographs of Mrs Dubois with her sickly husband, and Billy finds the botanist’s journal. It describes how, faced with her husband’s imminent death, Dubois planned to put him into a coma and somehow rebuild him. They realize Edith must be the Collector. They wonder what Watson was so desperate to find in Dubois’ house, and why he lied to Holmes about the hawkweed being a dead end. Given that hawkweed requires such specific conditions to grow, it could only conceivably grow in the botanical gardens, so the group heads there to investigate.

Watson held by Edith

Watson was held hostage by Edith.

At the botanical gardens, Bea and her friends break into the head botanists’ nursery. There, they find Dubois attending to the corpse of her husband, Samuel. She reveals that her work is complete, and gloats about her powers over life. However, when she injects the serum into her husband to revive him, it fails. Edith muses that the illness must have spread to his organs, and that she needs more body parts. Bea tries to convince her to tell them more about Watson and the Rip. She even offers not to turn Edith over to the police in exchange for information over Spike and Billy’s protests that Edith will go right back to harvesting body parts if she remains free. When Edith realizes that Bea actually hates Watson, she reveals that she has him locked in a back room.

Edith tells the group that after medicine failed to cure her husband, she turned to the occult. Bea is outraged to find out that Watson was behind the rip that killed her mother all along. Watson tries to apologize, but swears that he is not behind the current Rip. He threw Edith’s device into the Thames after opening the Rip the first time. However, the discussion is interrupted by Edith. She threatens to break a vial of a toxic chemical if any of them move, which will kill them all.

Bea and her friends meet to discuss the situation. Without any leads from Watson, and with the situation in the city deteriorating, they agree they have to get Jessie to find the Rip on her own. Bea looks for Jessie in the cellar, but instead finds Daimler. He tells her the truth about Leo’s identity. Bea confronts Leo about the revelation, and how he has been lying to the group since they met. She tells him that he put them all in danger for his folly. Leo tries to explain that he just wanted their friendship, but Bea rejects his apology and tells him he was just using them. She tells him to leave and never come back. Defeated, Leo returns to the palace.

Louise told Leo to embrace who he is

Louise told Leo to embrace who he is.

In the royal palace, Leo is gently chastised by his sister Louise for running away. She tells him that he has to stop trying to be someone else and must accept who he is. Daimler enters, and informs Leo that his German cousin, Princess Helena, is currently visiting Britain. Hearing that the princess is currently looking for a suitor, the Queen has invited her to the palace to meet with Leo. Leo assumes Daimler is behind this development and orders him to leave angrily.

Spike visits Billy in prison. He informs Billy of Leo’s real identity as a royal prince. Billy tells Spike that he expects a harsh punishment for killing Vic Collins; he suspects he will probably hang. He tells Spike to concentrate on closing the Rip. However, Spike response that Billy is an essential member of their group, and promises to get him out.

Spike travels to the palace, and is immediately detained after jumping over the back wall. Inside, Leo has tea with Princess Helena. Leo is sullen and quiet, which irritates the princess. She realizes that Leo is already in love with someone else. She tells him that she is as well, but she will go along with the marriage because it is her duty and for the good of her country. Nevertheless, Leo tells her that he plans to do everything he can to prevent their marriage.

Spike convinces Leo to return

Spike convinced Leo to come back with the team.

Back in the palace, Leo is surprised to find Spike talking to Louise. Leo asks her to leave, and Spike warns him that the city is descending into chaos. He tells him that the country could collapse if they don’t find the Rip. Spike is upset when Leo implies that he is no longer part of their friend group, but Leo responds he never really was; he was merely pretending to be someone else for a while. He asks Spike to leave on threat of being removed. However, Leo eventually breaks down and admits that he feels he doesn’t belong anywhere, which Spike replies is the reason they belong together.

Spike arrives at the house with Billy and Leo, who managed to secure Billy’s release. Together, the four friends talk to Jessie, reaching her in her nightmare. This gives her the strength to climb out of the grave and destroy the plague doctors.

Boys gear up

Leo, Billy, and Spike geared up so they could fight if necessary.

In another room, Watson is preparing the boys for the battle to come. He tries to solve the riddle to unlock the weapon's cabinet when Billy takes a smalls statue and breaks the lock. Billy grabs his weapon of choice and then passes a rifle back to Spike. Leo declines a weapon at first, but the rest of the group tells him he will need it and not let himself get caught short. Once the group is armed and ready, they set out to the Rip. The city has fallen to mayhem and Watson warns them that the larger the Rip gets, the worse the mayhem will become. He tells them that he was apprehensive when he first asked for their help because they were children, but Bea reminds him that they still are. At the Rip, we see that The Linen Man has begun the ritual to grant him his god-like powers.

Leo with nosebleed

Leo imagined having a nosebleed, which scared him.

The group begins to separate little by little and a white flash passes by Spike and touches his shoulder. In the next moment, Vic Collins makes his way towards him. The same white flash passes and touches Leo, who instantly gets a nosebleed.The same thing happens to Spike, who instantly falls to the ground terrified. Jessie, Bea and Watson overhear Billy and Spike's screams and Watson realizes that The Linen Man has come for them.

Just before the same white flash moves past them, Watson fires and stops The Linen Man from coming close. Jessie tells them to stay where they are and that she will handle him. Watson tries to stop her, but she runs after The Linen Man. He stays behind to try and help Bea break out of The Linen Man's control. Meanwhile, Leo is bleeding profusely out of his nose, mouth and ears following by Spike screaming out for someone to "help her; she’s dying". It then jumps to Billy being taunted by Vic.

Everyone tries to regroup, but the tunnel collapses and separates Billy, Spike and Leopold from Bea, Jessie and Watson. Billy's leg is broken in the collapse and Bea tells them to head back to the cellar and keep each other safe. Billy is reluctant to go at first but eventually agrees. Spike and Leopold help Billy out of the tunnels while Bea and Watson continue on to find Jessie, who had made her way down to The Linen Man. He is somehow still alive and warns Jessie that if she tries to close the Rip, she will die.

Above ground, we can see that the streets have gotten far worse as Spike, Billy and Leopold navigate past a cannibal feasting on another man’s flesh. Down at the Rip, we get a sweet family reunion until the topic of the girl’s upbringing comes up. Sherlock apologizes for not being there for the girls and claims he tried, but Bea believes he is lying and that he abandoned her just last night.

Back near the cellar, Spike, Billy and Leo realize that things are getting far worse. Anytime someone even makes a small wish or prays, they are changing. It's clear to them that Jessie hasn't gotten a chance to close the Rip yet. They see a group of people with Sister Anna being chased down by a warped man and Spike runs up and "rifles" him. They suggest that Sister Anna and two parishioners come down into the cellar to keep safe.

At the cellar, monsters are trying to break in. Billy and Spike are ready to give up when Leopold reminds them that they still need to fight. They have each other and ask long as they do, they have something to fight for. The three get ready to make their final stand against the monsters.

Leo realizes that Sister Anna begins praying with the two parishioners. He tries to stop them from continuing the prayer, but they aren't listening. As they finish off the prayer with an "amen," Sister Anna becomes warped and her eyes blacken over.

Leo drowned

Leo was almost drowned by Sister Anna, who was corrupted.

A now corrupted Sister Anna kills the two parishioners and turns on the boys. They try to get away, but Sister Anna catches up with them. She throws Billy and Spike to the opposite side of the room, rendering them unconscious and goes after Leopold. Sister Anna tells him that he is unpure and she will baptize him before she kills him. She throws him into the sewer water and beings to try to drown him.

In the cellar, we watch Billy come to as he overhears Sister Anna trying to drown Leopold. However, he is struggling to stay awake and is not able to get up and help him.

Watson helps save Jessie

After letting Holmes go, Watson was able to help Bea save Jessie.

Watson and Bea are still struggling to hold onto Bea and Sherlock. Jessie loses her footing and Bea struggles to keep her steady. She calls out to Watson to help her, but he refuses to let go of Sherlock. Bea continues to beg, telling him that he can let Sherlock go, that she needs his help to save her. He finally lets go of Sherlock, who is pulled into the Rip and grabs ahold of Jessie. The scene then flashes back and forth between Leo and Sister Anna to Jessie, Bea and Watson until Jessie can finally close the Rip. With Watson's help, Bea keeps her sister from being dragged in.

With the Rip closed, Sister Anna comes to before she was successful in drowning Leopold. Bea struggles to come to terms with what happened and Watson tells her that they're gone. At the cellar, Billy finally comes to completely and he and Leo realize that Jessie was successful. The two go to check on Spike and are worried he might be dead, but he slowly comes to as well. Spike asks if it is finally over and they share the good news with him.

The next morning, Billy, Spike, Jessie, Bea, Leopold and Watson meet at Alice's grave and place flowers on her tombstone. Bea gives a beautiful eulogy for Alice and Sherlock. The group gets ready to take their leave and Bea and Watson are left at the grave. Bea asks Waston what he will do now. He isn't sure what he will do, but he thinks he can find something. Bea invites him to come over for fish and chips, but he declines and says he has dinner plans.

Spike and Billy celebrate

Spike and Billy celebrated the closure of the Rip.

Back at the cellar, the group digs into their dinner. Leo asks Bea if she would take a step outside with him. Leo tells Bea that he can't stay for dinner and has to return to the palace. He promised his mother he would go to Europe and leaves the next day. He explains that because he is a royal, he has expectations of who he needs to marry. Leopold says that he likes Bea, but he has to marry who he is told even if he doesn't like her. Bea is confused with why Leo is going along with this. He explains that he loves her, but he has to go along with this. Bea tells him that he can do whatever he wants, that after spending all this time, she thought he would have changed. But Leo shares that he has to do it because this was the only way he could get them to agree to help Billy. He gave up his freedom for Billy's. If he doesn’t go back, they will arrest Billy again. He doesn't want Billy to know, though and asks Bea to keep it a secret. Bea finally understands why Leo has no choice. He explains that he didn't try to trick her but was trying to be his real self around her and the rest of the group. That he was happy that she liked him when she didn't even know he was a prince. She asks him if this was real and he reminds her that this was all real. Leo heads off to the palace and Bea finds herself at 221B. She finds Watson home alone, having lied about having dinner plans. She offers to share her fish and chips with him.
