[S3E2] Love Triangles and Love Triumphs
After Bobby and Marie walk down the common alley that evening, Marie asked Bobby about his friends disappearance. Bobby replies that they're with them until they've both ditched them for awhile. Shortly thereafter, Bobby notices the couch and offers her to kiss him again, but Marie declines. Bobby grows more and more infatuated with Marie. But realizing the more he pursues his love, Marie obliges as the pair sits and kisses once again. Unbeknownst to them, Connie is saddened to watch Bobby kisses Marie while she was throwing the trash away in the garbage can. Soon after, the kissing ends, the more Marie pulls away after she realizes that she's late for home when she looks at her watch and leaves with a love-strucked Bobby wishing her a good night.
During at Dinner, Bobby ask Peggy for some rice and plain toast, because Marie is a vegetarian. Hank is irritated about Bobby's relationship with Marie. Bobby explains his parents about his relationship with Marie and make-out. Peggy is shocked and gets Hank to talk with Bobby. Hank, at first explains about vegetarian, but Peggy meant the kissing since Bobby is a minor. Bobby then explains that he's a good kisser that Marie said. Bobby demonstrates his parents how Marie kissed him. Peggy is disgusted at this and retorts that he's only twelve-years old that should be afraid of girls. But Bobby refutes that Peggy is just jealous because she aren't in love like him and Marie. Peggy insists Bobby that he shouldn't be compared with a two days infatuation and with a twenty year marriage. Although, Bobby advises that he and Marie had been kissing for more than two days than his parent's marriage. Bobby also said that he never seen his parents kissed for long time. Peggy claims that Hank had kissed her, much to Hank's annoyance. This dispute arises at the dining table between Peggy and Bobby.
The next day, Hank and Peggy are shopping at Hardware Ranch to buy some tools and supplies. Hank request some clerk for covers to prevent some of the squirrels from the couch. After the clerk leaves to get something for Hank, Peggy tries to hold Hank's hand on the counter until he quickly moves it away and ask her about why she's holding his hand. Peggy reminds Hank that they usually hold their hands together and remembers about their board daylight. Hank responses that his hands are full by grabbing some flashlight and a tool in excuse. Peggy is disappointed and then realizes that they were afraid to show their love for each other. Hank finally holds Peggy's hand and show their love of their relationships. Ironically, a disgusted customer walks by in the distance and tells them off to get some privacy, making both Hank and Peggy release their hands in embarrassment.
They travel to a party in Marie's residence, where Bobby and Marie are dancing with other guests before he eats some snacks from the snack table before asking two boys about this party to be a make-out party, knowing if it then he'll be prepared for it. Unfortunately for him, Bobby is shocked and sickened by the sight of Marie dancing with other boys. Bobby tries to get the other boys away from Marie, but they dismiss him before they go back dancing again. This leading to Bobby to turn off the music and stops the party. Bobby calls Marie's name out loud, causing her to subsequently drag him by his hands outside of her house in embarrassment. Outside of Marie's residence, Bobby demands her about why she's dancing with those other boys, which replies that she likes dancing since she wanted to dance anyway. Bobby still demands that who were those boys and why is he still dancing with all those boys. As his jealous continues, Bobby persist that he and Marie were supposed to be dancing together instead of them. Marie tells Bobby that they are just friends and are not a serious romantic couple. Bobby is devastated by the "break up" and starts crying. Marie tries to console him by kissing him on the forehead, to whom Bobby mistakes this as a form of love; Marie, having enough, then decides to leave him to rejoin the party. Bobby tries to change Marie's mind by behaving in a clown-like manner, but when Marie ignores his advances, Bobby sinks into a deep devastation and takes the break-up hard and says it's a mistake.
We open in flashback, with Tommy Lascelles (Pip Torrens) telling a young Elizabeth that since it doesn't look like her parents will produce a son, she is heir apparent, and her life will soon change in preparation for her to one day assume the throne. That night, she tells her sister that she doesn't think she's up to it, to which little Margaret, a diva from day one, replies, "I could. I'd love every minute." She begs Elizabeth to tell Tommy: "Margaret Rose can do it. Margaret Rose wants to do it. Margaret Rose was born to do it."
With the Atlantic between her and her sister, Margaret has some room to breathe and claim the spotlight that she's so long been denied. America loves her. She's the star of every party, giving cheeky quotes to reporters ("What are you most looking forward to in America?" "Liberty!"), and attracting fans who call themselves "Margaretologists," as if she were a pop star with a rabid Twitter following. "What we have witnessed in Princess Margaret is a more vibrant, modern, and engaging version of her older sister," Antony reads aloud from a newspaper to his wife, who's loving it.
All of this is allowed to run its course because the queen's attentions are more closely focused on another type of course: the racecourse. Having spent a day at Royal Ascot with her good old buddy Porchey (played by John Hollingworth this season. Remember him from last season? Philip was always a little jealous of his and Elizabeth's easy manner.), she's realized her horses are just not up to scratch anymore. So she and Porchey decide to embark on a trip to France and the U.S. to learn from horse breeders around the world. In her absence, she has deputized some of her responsibilities to her mother. Elizabeth is having a grand old time. She's spending her days talking about reproductive management and herd health and she and Porchey share a sandwich and come to the conclusion they need to change their whole approach to breeding. She asks him to be the royal racing manager. Later over dinner, she admits how having such a lovely time has actually made her very sad, as she's getting to live the life she always wanted to; a life that would've made her happier.
Anyway, job (well) done, Charles drives back to Cambridge, looking rather teary during the drive. He gets back to his beloved acting, wearing a costume on stage very similar to that he just wore for real at the investiture and playing King Richard II in Shakespeare's tragedy. "I live with bread like you," he recites on stage. "I feel want, taste grief, need friends: subjected thus, How can you say to me, I am a king?" There are layers to the s---, folks.
Time for a spot of polo! Lord Mountbatten and the queen mother watch Prince Charles and Andrew Parker-Bowles get competitive on the field while Camilla cheers on Charles from the sidelines. Later, Charles fills in Mountbatten on his recent trip to Paris to see his great-uncle. Charles thinks the duke sees something of himself in the young prince. He also tells Mountbatten he wants to snap Camilla up and later persuades her to have dinner with him. She comes over to the palace (causal first date) for dinner. During supper, Charles rants about his lot in life and his destiny to become king, saying until the queen dies, he cannot be fully alive or be the thing for which he was born. Just then a servant interrupts with a note for Camilla. When she opens it, paper birds pop out in her face. They dissolve in merry laughter and Charles admits all his waffling on about being king one day was part of the prank. Sure you didn't mean all that, Charles? He later tells his sister the evening was lovely. Anne warns him to make sure it stays the two of them playing with Camilla and Andrew and not the other way around.
As the episode draws to a close, we hear a snippet of Charles' letters discussing kingship and love and the difficulties that go with both. He recognizes himself in the duke, in his progressiveness, flare, and individuality, and wonders what a king the duke would've made in a kinder world. Charles believes his great uncle was cruelly denied his right to reign alongside the woman he wanted by his side but says he, Charles, won't be denied in the same way. The crown is not static; it's moving. It's the changing face of changing times and he will wear it on his own terms and make his uncle proud. The Duke of Windsor dies in France with his wife Wallis Simpson by his side.
Elizabeth, having read Charles' letters to his late uncle, understands her son feels very deeply for Camilla. Philip is more dismissive: "You don't love a girl like Camilla Shand. She's a bit of fun." And while Charles is totally smitten, Camilla is still torn between him and Andrew Parker Bowles.
The episode is bookended by two visits Queen Elizabeth II makes to her younger sister's apartments, speaking with Margaret both times while she's lying in bed. The first time, it's nearly noon and there's broken glass on the floor thanks to her and Tony's latest, erm, "exchange of views." But despite Tony taking up with the woman Margaret refers to as "The Thing," she says they'll never split up, not just because of the royal moratorium on divorce but because this is just how their relationship works. "War is our love," she says. "A brutal fight to the death is our mating dance." And according to her, they wouldn't want it any other way. 041b061a72
