    Evie moving in with Penny must have helped bring Bea to her senses. Thank heavens that in this episode she appears far more relaxed and is even prepared to compromise on design ideas. It’s virtually a tantrum free zone all round. Perhaps Evie should have moved out ages ago. Some time must have passed since the preceding episode as Evie has moved back in and Bea seems to have had a change of heart about her relationship with Jack. She continues to be defensive though and needs some significant work on how to work on successful relationships. I couldn’t believe it when Jack proposed and she said she think about it after the collection. I can’t see why Jack bothers with her sometimes. He’s a handsome guy, I’m sure he’d be able to find someone far more approachable. However, the fact that Bea puts work above all else is significant as this is what causes problems for her and Jack until the final episode of the whole show. I thought Aunt Lydia’s assumption that Sir Desmond was asking her to marry him quite amusing. There should be more ‘light’ moments like this. I’d also like to see more of Evie. Her character is preoccupied with designing the collection. There needs to be more of a balance; she’s not really had a good story line since Sebastian. This episode is pivotal as it establishes the relationship with Victor Stide that will be so significant in the final episode of this series. The high point of this episode came with Penny’s outburst at the charity ball. And I thought Bea was candid at inappropriate moments. A top moment. A must see episode all roundmoreless

    • (Penny demonstrates she knows how to make friends and influence people at the charity ball)
      Penny: All that I wish to say is that while we are handing out prizes of extravagant clothes and you are all dancing and swilling Champaign, there are people out there on the streets of London, not three hundred yards from here, who have no beds, no shelter and no food for the night. And that if you had any real charity in you, you would have given your money directly to the mission instead…
