Holmes is asked by a famous Russian ballet dancer to become the father of her child, but Holmes wiggles out of it by hinting that he is in a relationship with Watson (who is not happy about what such a rumor could do to his reputation). Soon after a cabby brings a young woman whom he had found in the river. She has lost her memory, but Holmes manages to learn that her name is Gabrielle, the Belgian wife of a mining engineer who had gone to Scotland for his work and has ceased to give news three weeks ago. Holmes, Watson and Gabrielle investigate the address where Gabrielle was sending her letters to her husband, discover it is an abandoned shop, but find a letter from Mycroft. At his club, the latter commands his brother to cease investigating the case. The trio therefore goes to Scotland and discovers that something strange is happening in a castle near Loch Ness. They also discover the dead engineer being buried in a nameless grave. One evening, Holmes is summoned to the castle, where Mycroft explains that the engineer was working on an air pump used in a prototype submersible, and died in an accident. The same evening, Queen Victoria visits the place to see the submarine, but she disapproves of the notion of attacking unseen from under water, and puts a stop to the project. Mycroft also tells Sherlock that the real Gabrielle had been murdered three weeks earlier, and that the young woman is actually an Prussian spy. Upon his return, Sherlock understands she uses her umbrella to send Morse code messages to a group of German sailors disguised as monks, and tricks them into stealing the sabotaged submarine, killing them in the process. The spy is then arrested and exchanged for a British spy. Some months later, Sherlock is very affected when he learns from Mycroft that she was arrested as a spy in Japan and executed.
