Otto suspects Richard's involvement with her and Margaret offers Jean words of domestic wisdom before her operation. Jean, confused and upset, visits Monty for reassurance but he is also wandering and attempts to drown himself, being rescued by Otto, who discovers that Angela and Jean are sisters but agrees to say nothing. Angela, seeing the Powells as a happy family on a theatre trip, becomes even more aware that an affair with Otto would be pointless whilst Elizabeth realizes that Mulligan has duped her into having sex and there are no saving documents as promised. He tells her how Otto failed to save his son in Cyprus where he first became smitten by Elizabeth, with whom he is now obsessed. Lily sees her with Mulligan but Elizabeth asks her not to tell their husbands though Lily has her own disappointment when Charlie tells her he has failed an interview for a better job in St. Albans.
