Synopsis
A master glass blower's assistant slays his employer while seeking the fame that has eluded him as a fellow artist, an event watched by the Heap. A few days later, the killer is featured before the King during the Festival of Glass to create a glass likeness of his majesty. Instead, as the glass cools, the figure of Anton Rhenish appears, which the King takes as incrimination for the death of the master glass blower at the hands of Ullrich, who is promptly arrested.
