A trial allows Darnay to be set free. In that trial, Dr. Manette uses his influence, he is seen as a hero by the jury because of his earlier imprisonment, and so Manette vouches for Darnay. A unanimous vote let's Darnay go.


Unfortunately, 2 hours later, Darnay is re-arrested, accused by the Defarges, and coincidentally, Dr. Manette.
