Fleur and Jon meet secretly and agree they will elope to Scotland where they can marry without parental permission. Jolyon comes to see Fleur, telling her of his weak heart and asking her to renounce Jon, whom he needs to be with him. Despite assurances to Jolyon, she does not tell Jon. Having received a letter exposing Annette's affair with Profond, Soames is pleased when Profond says he intends to leave England but at a cricket match between Eton and Harrow schools, Soames notes that his wife is in Profond's arms again. Michael Mont is at the match, having had Soames' permission to court Fleur but Fleur is still infatuated with Jon. After the match Jolyon and Irene tell Jon the history of their marriages and the reason they want to keep him apart from Fleur. Jolyon then dies of a heart attack and Jon does not turn up to elope with Fleur because he is at his father's funeral. Fleur eventually catches up with him and they are caught making love by a very angry June.
