The Weight of One Man's Heart is the fifth episode of Season One of Ripper Street.


While courting Rose, Bennet Drake is painfully aware of his meager salary as a policeman, and his resentment is stirred by a chance meeting with his old commanding officer, Colonel Madoc Faulkner, who urges Drake to seize his due and turn his back on Her Majesty's government, which marginalizes so many veterans like themselves. At the same time, a gang of expert thieves are using military-grade explosives to crack supposedly "unbreakable" safes.
