Marcus opens his club, the Manhattan, managed by Stephen, who offers Clive permanent bar-work. Ruth is left behind at the Grand with John whilst Marcus makes up to Sarah, and the club is raided, a publicity stunt arranged by Marcus. Ruth's formidable grand-mother, Mrs. Crawford, installs herself in the hotel, telling Marcus a few home truths and making arrangements for Ruth's pregnancy. Esmee gets close to Jacob Collins and he confides in her that he saw Sarah and Marcus kissing. She advises him to say nothing but he lets it slip to Sarah and is rebuked for his pains. Stephen kisses Kate but, in view of Monica's fate, she sees a relationship between them as out of the question.
