Episode Summary

EDIT
Part Twenty-three
AIRED:
Plantagenet has worries aplenty in the form of resignations and scandal. Phineas is named the First Lord of the Admiralty and his wife will accompany him on his tour of the Navy, taking away Glencora's most loyal confidante. She insists that she take the blame for the troubles over Mr. Lopez, but Plantagenet refuses absolutely. In an attempt to extort £20,000 from her father Lopez threatens to take Emily to Guatemala, and away from her family. Wharton agrees to settle all debts and set up Lopez in a new career on the condition that he leaves, alone, for Guatemala, and never returns. Lopez agrees. This leads to an exquisitely acted scene between Lopez and his wife, with delicious recriminations all round. Silverbridge returns from Italy and agrees to go into politics, as a Conservative! Glencora insists that he keep this a secret from his father. As the scandal deepens, Plantagenet's friends and allies, including Phineas, return to London and rally round him. Indeed Phineas speaks most eloquently for him at a special session of Parliament. In his speech he exposes Lopez for the duplicitous fellow that he is. This leads to Ferdinand being expelled from the Liberal Club, and losing his promised job in Guatemala. He eventually chooses to leave the scene in the most dramatic way afforded to him. The hurt that this brings to the Pallisers means that he did extract a small amount of revenge on them. The delightful rogue, Sextus Parker, confronts the Whartons and, with a exquisite bit of flannel, manages to receive some compensation.moreless
