Felice is frustrated, explaining how she was in love with him for “the longest time.” Wilhelm apologizes for his behavior and wants to be friends. She accepts his apology, and they hug it out.
After having sex with Sara, August receives a call from the Royal Court telling him they will provide a plan for him for the next ten years; they want to know if he’s ever impregnated anyone, if he drinks and smokes, and if he’s heterosexual. After this call, Sara talks to August about the call; he reveals to her that he’s the backup plan for Wilhelm for succession to the throne.
Despite the romance brewing between Sara and August, Sara tells him she can’t go to the Valentine’s Day Ball with him and that she’s going with the girls instead. The girls have decided to rebel against the usual traditions.
