Episode Summary

EDIT
Part Twenty-five
AIRED:
Silverbridge is bringing the Boncassens to tea. We are allowed to enjoy a mystifying explanation of the British class system. Glencora has a razor insight as to why her son has chosen to run, and win, as a Conservative. Mary admits to her mother her love for Frank. Remembering her past, Glencora vows to let all of her children follow their hearts. A walk in the same ruined church where Glencora caught a chill, to avoid spending Christmas in the same house as Burgo Fitzgerald, finds an important discussion between her and Plantagenet brought up short by a fit of coughing. Silverbridge wants to drop his friendship with Major Tifto. His father tells him to let him down easily, but when Tifto drunkenly dares him to bet big, he lays down £40,000 on the Prime Minister, their horse. The horse goes lame before the race even begins, but Silverbridge's money is still forfeit. It is likely that Tifto nobbled the horse to make more money then he possibly could have on bets. Worse than all of this, Gerald is sent down from Cambridge for going to the race to see his brother's horse run. Plantagenet makes everything right assuming that his eldest son will now see that marrying Mabel will please him. Glencora's health is worsening and her children's actions add to her worries. At a dance, Silverbridge falls deeper in love with Isabel, and Mabel notices. Gerald show up and tells Silverbridge that they must return home at once, as their mother's health has taken a turn for the worse.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Lynne Frederick's southern accent tends to wander between southern England and southern US.

      • Until now the Beer Garden has always seemed to be the Liberal Club. In this episode it suddenly seems to be overrun with Conservatives. The fact that Dolly Longstaffe and the stuffed bear that holds hats and canes are there mean that it is the same club that we have seen throughout.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Silverbridge (comparing his club with the House of Commons): Of course there may be one or two cads there, but then there are plenty here as well.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Filming of the final episodes was hit by industrial action at the BBC, and the concluding two episodes were screened after a gap of four months.
