Bad news for Rose..., 7 September 2010
Author: (arrival)

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

October, 1916, A 'classic' episode from this season, this one, when Rose gets bad news receiving a telegram to say that Gregory Wilmot, her intended, has been killed in action... Rose goes into shock, and turns to a clairvoyant for comfort. Mrs. Bellamy is furious when she finds out after Rose returns home hysterical, that a good Christian like she should turn to such charlatans for comfort instead of the church. In turn, Rose in her grief forgets herself, and tells her mistress some home-truths. Hazel being the generous person she is, instead of reprimanding her, simply admits that Rose has not said anything wicked at all - but simply the truth.

In the meantime; Hazel discovers from a newspaper that the man she is in love with behind James' back has also been killed in action... Adding to this; James comes home unexpectedly on leave, and for once, we get to see a more generous side of his nature, when he talks to Rose to help her feel better about her loss, and discovers Hazel's affair with Jack Dyson, but says nothing...
