At Neuhaus's suggestion Miss Mardle takes in Belgian refugees, including handsome young violinist Florian Dupont. Agnes is asked out by Victor, now running the family restaurant following Uncle Gio's death and Gabriella's return to Italy.

Delphine arranges a meeting for Harry with members of the military procurement board - including Loxley - with a view to giving Harry a say in the running of military matters. The men play cards, Harry winning a substantial sum from Loxley, though Lady Mae is curious as to how her husband amassed a large wad of money. He gives her some notes to buy a new outfit at the store but she is offended by Thackeray's sexist comments and makes no purchases.
