A girl has just committed suicide by drinking disinfectant.
An inspector arrives, he has some bad news. The Birlings are celebrating an engagement. It is about to be spoilt with guilt and regret.
He tells them that a girl committed suicide in the infirmary by drinking disinfectant. Mr Birling thinks he's just here for a warrant.
The Birlings are shocked and the party is stopped. The inspector starts by saying that Mr Birling kicked her out of her job which began all of it.
He then says that she found another job but Sheila got her removed. Gerald picked her up and then left her. Eric made her pregnant and kept supplying with money but once she realised it was stolen, stopped taking it. Mrs Birling then rejected her from a women's charity
He leaves them thinking they killed her, but then Gerald goes out and comes back saying that he wasn't a police inspector. He asked a sergeant. Mr Birlings says that it confirms his suspicions. Gerald calls the infirmary, no girl has committed suicide.
As the party resumes, they receive a call saying that a girl has died and a inspector is coming to ask some questions.
