Tom Weston is furious to see that Moray has set up a display of pocket watches which might steal attention away from his new Food Hall. When he sees Ladieswear buzzing from Denise's latest innovation he decides to harness the effervescence of Moray's 'little champion' and asks her to spend time in other departments to make improvements. Jonas begins to reel Tom in even closer and Tom, oblivious to Jonas' duplicity, orders him to report on Moray's movements. However, when Tom invites Moray and Denise to dine at Belville Hall and reveals plans to send Denise to Paris, Moray is incensed. He begs Denise not to go and instructs Jonas to tell Tom the truth, seemingly oblivious to the consequences his actions will have for Katherine and that the forfeiting of Paris is a bitter pill for Denise to swallow.
