Hazel has taken to seeing a young RFC pilot, Jack Dyson, whom she had met at the tea party Lady Prudence had arranged at 165 Eaton Place. She quits likes the young Dyson who is shy and unassuming. He also feels somewhat out of place in Belgravia, something Hazel can easily relate to. What starts out as a friendship however quickly turns to love for both of them. Hudson, who has always admonished the staff to avoid the goings on above stairs, takes note of Mrs. Bellamys frequent outings leading to an argument with Rose. Georgina meanwhile has now been assigned to a field hospital in France is doing excellent work. She gets to spend some time with James, for whom she evidently has great affection.

Hazel Bellamy 'plays away'!
7 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

July, 1916,

Meg (Wynn Owen) once told me that this was her favourite episode - and one can see why, since it gives the actress a chance to 'branch out' from the character Hazel became, and which also gave her the opportunity of a 'meatier' role. Her acting had been outstanding to say the least since she'd entered the third season, and she would be a great loss to the series when she left a few episodes after this.

Hazel sticks to her guns and refuses to open up the Drawing Room for Lady Prudence's 'Wounded Officers' Tea Party'. Just as well, since only three turn up! However, one of which that does, takes a fancy to Hazel

  • and she to him. Hazel Bellamy has a full-blown affair whilst James is
away. It's hard to 'disapprove' of Hazel's betrayal - firstly; because James is really being unfaithful to her with his cousin Georgina, and second; he treats Hazel like dirt anyway... One cannot begrudge her a little bit of happiness after two failed marriages to two selfish men... Rose approves, and when Hudson suggests 'immorality' and goes off one - Rose defends her mistress, but if I'd have been Rose, I would have reminded his smug face of Lady Marjorie's infidelity years before, that he tried to shovel under the carpet..

Daisy, still feeling put upon since doing the work of four people, becomes rebellious.
