Titre original : End of a Vibrant Summer
There is only one week of holiday left, but Terry and Archibald's animosity is still alive and kicking. Both boys end up dueling in a fence fight. While Patricia and Annie beg the boys to stop, Candy tries some reverse psychology, shouting they should find an audience and invite the whole village. Though Terry corners Archibald for the kill, he declares the fight a stalemate and leaves. When Candy discovers an old airplane in Terry's hangar and Alistear finds out about it, Alistear drags Archibald over to help him fix it. Eventually, Terry and Archibald make up and Alistear manages to take off and fly the plane, until the engine malfunctions and he has to make an emergency landing. Basking in the sun at the side of the lake, Terry tells Candy his father's plane stems from the days he was in love with Terry's mother. But once Terry was born and his father recognized the responsibilities of a nobleman, he let the plane rust. Terry vows that he will always be true to himself and invites Candy to dance. They laugh, they are happy and then he stares at her intently. Terry pulls her into his arms, and kisses her. For a few moments earth stops turning for both, but then the stunned Candy slaps him in the face and rejects him for being a bad man.
