Storyline

Glencora's cold turns to pneumonia, and after a brief rally, it becomes apparent that she will die. She doesn't want her children to be trapped into an arranged marriage as she was. She begs Plantagenet to provide for Mary and to let her have control of her own money, and confides to Marie that she wishes Mary to marry the poor and politically incorrect Tregear and not have Silverbridge forced to marry Lady Mabel Grex. Although initially he opposes both marriages, Plantagenet eventually comes around when Marie tells him about Glencora's wishes. When Orlando Drought tries to force Silver into making a speech against the Liberal Party to embarrass his father, things brighten for Planty when Silver decides to leave the Tories, and Duke of St. Bungay finds a place for him to return to government service.
