Titre original : The Link Between a Mother and a Child
During her early morning outing with Klint, Candy comes upon Terry while he rejects his mother. On her way back, she finds a scenario book of Romeo and Juliet with Eleanor Baker's initials. Candy attempts to give the book she found back to Eleanor Baker at the hotel, where Archibald and Alistear hoped to have her sign a picture for them. But Eleanor Baker supposedly has already left for the US. Candy sets out on a walk together with Annie and Patricia, but instantly leaves them when Terry calls out to her. He claims the book for himself and shows her his dramatic talent, holding her close and clasping her hands like a true actor. Candy brushes him off, afraid that before long he will make fun of her. And so he does. Despite their anxious banter, the two return to the summer castle in a friendly mood, until Terry happens to see his mother at the gate and rejects her pleas over and over. Candy shocks Terry into reminding him he should be grateful to have a mother at all, while she has neither father nor mother and never will. After she runs off in tears, a sobered-up Terry reconciles with his mother whom his father had kept away. Out of gratefulness Terry wishes to do something back for Candy. He drags her onto his horse and races with it through the forest, shocking her into being grateful that she and others live.
