No matter what treasure they find, be it gold or romance, Savoys past returns to haunt them. Emma must decide if this desert profligate is a man of honor, or an unscrupulous scoundrel; and Savoy must consider if his fortune can be found in the cave of a lost princess, or in the arms of this merchants daughter.
