Thomasina walks up to Silas, who's still watching the ballet, and Silas gets up out of his seat like a shot. You don't have to ask him twice. Out in the lobby, Silas takes a call from his mistress, who says that their son is struggling and in pain. Apparently, the kid has some sort of ongoing illness, as there are references to this happening before. Mistress says that the son is asking for his father. Silas tries to throw money at the problem, but Mistress says she's never asked for anything before, and now she's asking for him to show up at the hospital. Silas promises he'll be there just as the Queen bursts out of the performance hall and tells Silas, "That's enough of that. Come." She didn't hear the phone conversation, so it's not clear if she knew to whom Silas was speaking, or if she's just annoyed that he can't set aside a few hours for her pet project.
At the post-ballet reception, Michelle asks her mother what happened to David. Rose acts like she doesn't want to say, but she heard David went off with Jack to "some twitty girls' party." Okay. I get that they're trying to do a sort of Biblicial/Shakespearean/royal thing with the language on this show, but the word "twitty" totally took me out of the scene for like five minutes as I pondered how that got through rewrites. It doesn't seem like a word that Rose would say, for one thing. Silly, maybe. And it also made me think of Twitter, and that really took me out of the scene. Anyway, Rose suggests that Michelle go talk to some family friend, Paul, who manages a fund now, so he's suitable dating material. Michelle laughs it off and Rose accuses her of pouting because Silas didn't grant her petition today and expecting Silas to give her everything. Michelle agrees and takes off, clearly having just had an idea.
Reverend Samuels is a busy dude. He spent the day encouraging protests all over the country, and now he's at the ballet reception. Silas asks if Samuels would really rather have war than peace. Samuels retorts that he wants a united nation and sort of accuses Silas of breaking his promises to his people and probably to God as well. Silas gets all pissed off at Samuels for coming into his house and insulting him, which is pretty rude. Samuels gets the message and thanks Rose for having "raised the level" before leaving. On his way out, he passes a giant oil painting of Silas in the hallway. He walks back and tilts the painting so it's off-kilter, then leaves for good. This is seriously the least secure palace of all time.
