Storyline

Whilst Hunt is in Syria, getting stoned and painting 'The Scapegoat', Fred is charged to keep Annie away from other men. But he falls into the river whilst taking her punting and has to take his clothes off, giving her the opportunity to do the same and seduce him. Hunt is - initially - none the wiser on return but breaks off his engagenent to Annie because she will not do as he asks and gives up her elocution lessons. She takes up with wealthy Lord Rosterley, a celebrated womanizer, and refuses Hunt's pleas to return to him. Lizzie and Rossetti have more luck,getting engaged, and Ruskin acting as patron to both. He is impressed by Lizzie's drawings and paintings, which he buys, and gets Rossetti a teaching post and a commission to paint a mural. Millais, now married to Effie, and a commercial success, shows his friends his sketch for 'Bubbles', which they greet with hoots of derision. Written by don @ minifie-1
