Hazel is worried at the prospect of spending the weekend with James's friends Bunny and Diana Newbury and their coterie of hangers-on. The purpose of the weekend is a fox hunt but James forbids Hazel from riding given her inexperience and the dangers involved. Diana still has feelings for James and is not below pulling practical jokes and convinces Hazel that she should join them after the hunt has started and "surprise" James. Hazel's life is put in danger leading to a row with James. Then there's the question of bed-hopping, which at least some of the guest are enjoying. When Major Cochran-Danby enters Hazel's room with an eye to her bed, he tells her James is doing the same in Diana's room. A heartbroken Hazel then bolts for London. It's all a bit of an eye opener for Edward as well who is acting as James' valet for the weekend when a French ladies maid clearly shows an interest in him.
