Later, while Tristan and Guy are at the gala, Jemima confides in Zosia that she was trying to flee to France, but Tristan took her passport. Zosia goes straight to Tristan’s office to retrieve it – but when Tristan catches her in the act, he tries to stop her with brute force. Can Zosia defend herself?
