Storyline

Some months have passed and the Tilling residents assume that Mapp and Lucia are dead. Major Benjy,Mapp's heir,moves into her house from where he holds social events. Georgie erects a headstone with Lucia's name in large letters - and Mapp's in tiny ones,but still believes there is hope of Lucia being alive and retains her staff. Then the two women return,having been picked up by an Italian trawler. They both plan to give accounts of their ordeal - with differing perspectives,naturally. Lucia books the town hall for her lecture A Modern Odyssey. Surprisingly Mapp does not oppose her but instead accepts when Major Benjy asks her to marry him. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

When giving the position of the (fictitious) Gallagher Bank, Lucia starts to say "The longitude..." and then corrects herself to "The latitude is 108 degrees". In fact, latitudes cannot be more than 90° (the latitude of the poles), and even a longitude of 108° is unlikely as the Gallagher Bank is supposed to be in the North Atlantic, which doesn't extend further west than about 80°.

Quotes

Elizabeth Mapp: But if we hadn't bumped into the boat in that fog...
Emmeline 'Lucia' Lucas: Quite, dear, but we did bump into it. Pity it wasn't British, but drowing beggars can't be choosers.
