Conducting a gay affair in a hotel at the height of the Second World War was never going to be easy, but Toby and Adil should have been more careful. Though it’s too late, they’ve been spotted in a clinch and such a juicy bit of highly blackmail-rich behaviour is now being exploited by a rotter.
Lady Hamilton’s suave lover Lucian D’Abberville slinks around the Halcyon, looking for nuggets of gossip that can make him money, though the all-seeing, all-knowing manager Richard Garland gives him odd glances, as if he’s trying to see what lies beneath the smarm and the polish. He’d better hurry up and find something, because events are moving fast.
Garland asks Emma to take over running the celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the hotel, while Betsey catches the eyes of a handsome man in the bar - who is most insistent they go for a drink. Meanwhile, Adil tries to break ties with Lucian after giving him more information gleaned from Toby's briefcase and the situation takes a serious turn when MI5 officers arrive at the Halcyon with a warrant to enter and search the premises - prompting Freddie to return to deal with the ensuing crisis.
