Triangle's resident vamp Louise Glaum got to play a character here that had a bit more depth than her usual roles. Lola Montrose (Glaum) is supported in style by famous surgeon John Hampton (J. Barney Sherry), and she sends her son David (May Giraci) away to school. She wishes that Hampton would marry her, but instead he wins Paula Chester (Dorcas Matthews), who was originally intended for his son Irwin (Colin Chase). In revenge, Lola vamps Irwin into proposing to her, but he is drunk on the night of the wedding and the minister refuses to marry them. Irwin is so drunk, in fact, that he thinks the ceremony was actually performed and he brings Lola home to his father who, naturally, denounces her. But when Lola receives a call informing her that David has been badly injured by a fall at school, Paula convinces the surgeon to operate on the boy. In gratitude, Lola lets go of Irwin.
