September 1940: Richard allows Emma to organize a lavish wedding reception for the daughter of Lady Hamilton's friends the Ashworths with Lucian, somewhat reluctantly for fear of gossip, escorting Priscilla Hamilton. Best man Freddie has to console the widow of a fellow airman killed in action but the proceedings are interrupted by an air-raid, forcing the guests to shelter in the basement. Chefs Robbie and Max continue completing the wedding cake with Robbie exhorting Max not to give up hope for his family. Richard and Peggy also shelter from the raid, which destroys her house, but he is disconcerted to meet Douglas, a former WW1 colleague who carries a secret only he and Richard know. Betsey learns that Sonny paid off Gloria whilst the sexual attraction increases not just between Lady Hamilton and Lucian but Toby and barman Adil.
