Now hatred takes over, and Frank is recruited to join a secret White supremacist organization, The Black Legion. Frank and the Legion members burn down the Dombrowski family's chicken farm, and the family leaves town. Frank now gets the job of foreman, but tragedies lie ahead–beginning with his wife Ruth (Erin O'Brien-Moore) leaving when his job and the atrocities he commits with the Black Legion take up most of his time.

Now, Ceddie has become the heir to the Earl's estate, and the Earl accepts Ceddie as Lord Fauntleroy and invites him and his mother to visit.
