Masterpiece Episode: "The Way We Live Now"

Season 31, Episode 17
Episode Synopsis: “The Way We Live Now,” conclusion. In the wake of Paul Montague's disclosure about the railroad, Malmotte (David Suchet) admits to being “overstretched.” In fact, what money he does have is in Marie's name, and Marie (Shirley Henderson) isn't inclined to let him have it. But prospects are not so bleak for the Carburys, though Hetta (Paloma Baeza) concedes that her liaison with Paul leaves much to be desired. “It's so messy and complicated and compromised,” she says.
