  • Episode Description
  • Glencora's health is of concern to all. She is determined to ensure that her children, especially Mary, have the ability to control their own future. Nothing can stop her passing, but she is among those who love her, and gets to bid a special farewell to each, almost. Several months have passed since the funeral. Mary returns from a trip, with Marie, to the continent. Mrs Finn is convinced that Mary pines for something more than she can provide but the Duke convinces her to stay. Marie knows that the Duke must be told, but Mary understands that Frank must ask her father first. Silverbridge proposes to Isabel and she insists that he tell his father before she can give her answer. The Duke can barely deal with these two circumstances. Just when it looks like he will be defeated by his children's desires, Marie helps to remind him that they are Glencora's children also, and they deserve to achieve their hearts' desires. Silverbridge discovers the shortcomings of the Conservatives and prepares to cross the floor although, again at his father's insistence, he won't do it precipitately. Plantagenet is asked to return to government as the Lord Privy Seal. A final, wonderful, debate with his son, and conversation with Marie, help Plantagenet to come to the realization that even his nature needs to be more generous than he has allowed it to be until now.moreless
