Simon is visited by Penelope and Colin, who seek his advice after their youngest son George is still not talking. Inspired by their conversation, Simon gets out his untouched father’s letters and decides to finally read them. He realises they only contain information about estates and account matters, with no mention of an apology or anything personal. He decides they’re not worth keeping and ends up burning them all in the fire.

Francesca always longed to have children, and three years after getting married to Michael Stirling she remains childless. Soon after confiding in Violet about how deeply she wishes to have children she realises she is pregnant, but keeps it a secret from the family in case anything happens. One year later Francesca surprised Violet with her son John, named after her first husband. Nine months later she gives birth to a daughter, Janet.

Overall it seems like every member of the family gets a happy ending, and it’s a very wholesome conclusion to all of their stories.
