Storyline

Michael is told by June Forsyte in a somewhat casual way that Fleur and her younger brother Jon were once madly in love. Michael now feels that he was her second choice and that she probably has no feelings for him. Michael asks Fleur if she wants him to leave and she says no, though their relationship takes a turn when she has news for him. Bicket and his wife get boxes of second hand clothes from Michael Mont and are thrilled at their unexpected good fortune. Victorine has her first nude sitting with Aubrey Greene, but her husband is unaware what she has been doing. At the insurance firm, Soames confides in Sir Lawrence Mont about the possibility that the manager, Elderson, may have been taking bribes. When Soames and Sir Lawrence Mont inform Edelson of the allegations, he instantly fires the clerk who reported the conversation he overheard but Soames is still uneasy about the situation.
