George did love Marina and wanted to return for her and their child, according to an unfinished letter. Phillip proposes marriage to Marina, but she declines. Eloise confronts Genevieve and attempts to persuade her to write in the Featheringtons’ favor, assuming her to be Lady Whistledown.

Anthony reconnects with Siena and welcomes her to Daphne and Simon’s ball, but Siena declines. Will loses the struggle and gets his money from Archibald, who is killed by his “associates.” Marina discovers she is still pregnant and, with the help of Lady Featherington, leaves London to marry Phillip.
