Arsenic and Old Cake is the sixth episode in the first season of BBC America's Copper.

SynopsisEdit

Andrew is at a dentist with a rotten tooth, but the wrong one is pulled. The next morning the dentist is dead. Sergeant Byrnes is first on the scene and eats a piece of fancy cake and soon after dies. The cake turns out to be laced with arsenic. The investigation unravels a string of events that began from the dentist intending to poison his wife's lover, so he is declared to have murdered himself. Meanwhile Elizabeth tries unsuccessfully to discipline Annie and eventually returns her to her "husband" Reilly, thinking he is Annie's father. Robert and Marcus are at the exhibition fight between Jasper Longfield and Jake McGinnis. Jasper is supposed to take a dive, but refuses. In the 71st round Jasper is slugged by the referee and Jake is declared winner. Robert later visits Jake and gives him a ticket to leave New York to escape retaliation. Corky is at Elizabeth's house enjoying a glass of brandy, when she tells him Annie was sent to live with a family in California.
