Helen has finally taken her place as a special guest in the manor.
Maybe. Maybe I am impressionable. When Peter told me about, I dreaded the whole thing. I knew this would happen. But when I saw you -- When I saw both of you -- I told myself I would try and make the best of this. I didn’t want to share Peter, but you deserved the respect. Despite the situation, you two have been amazing. I mean, Meredith, you’re honest, loyal and so helpful -- I understand how this house stands because you are the heart of it. And Joan. You are more than a homemaker. This place, that garden -- there is nothing typical about you. You’re extremely smart, you can read -- Meredith, did you know she could read? Of course, you did. Joan is such an amazing woman. You make think that I don’t understand it, but I do. I understand this is a difficult time for you. And you are strong for enduring so much. I never met a woman like you. I never met women like you before. I thought being here would have been a great experience, but I was wrong. I love Peter. But maybe I was wrong. Maybe you do have reason to hate but I don’t have any reason to hate you. I really like you, but I won’t force you to feel the same. I guess if you really feel this way then it might be best that we stay out of each other’s way. I wouldn’t want to upset you even more.
