A violently unpleasant, explicit and ill-timed chance meeting at a rally between Enjolras and his father, up north on a business trip, is partially overheard by Grantaire and Bossuet, its bloody aftermath and then equally grim indicators of his past and present struggles are witnessed by the other Amis, leaving the them greatly concerned for their seemingly impalpable Chief yet also intrigued outright, while their Chief is left deeply troubled - mortified, melancholic and unsettled.
The Amis decide to be tenacious in their enquiries, dedicated not only to cut the knot of the enigma but to support and comfort their friend. The Republic, of course, did not give birth to Enjolras, not in the traditional sense, naturally everyone has had a family before the one they chose, stoic Apollo incarnate is no exception. A tiny peek at the inner workings of, blood relatives, losses and experiences that birthed and chisled the marble lover of liberty.
Or - In which the Amis partially decipher their riddle of a Chief - even against his will, yet for his own good, Combeferre and Courfeyrac take care of an ill Enjolras - and said Chief learns some very valuable lessons on family, friendship, his human condition and trust.
