Previously, on Mr. Selfridge: The gang goes to France for a press junket because why not.  While they’re there, Harry spends a ton of money on this trip, including free booze and accommodations for the reporters, a big party and jewelry for the dreadful Dolly girls. Frank gets wasted because he’s having an existential crisis about his life, and sleeps with a gossip columnist. Miss Mardle returns from New York to see Grove because Crabbe told her about his terminal illness. Full of guilt about his adultery, Frank tells Kitty they should maybe reconsider having a child together. The Dollys somehow get a movie audition, which one of them doesn’t show up for, because they’re terrible. And when the film producers can’t afford to keep the project afloat, Harry offers to bankroll it so the girls can have their dream job. Too bad he was supposed to give that extra cash to the large, cartoonish looking mob guy he owes money to. Oh, well.

Let’s get to it, I guess.

Previously, on Mr. Selfridge: Harry continues to make poor life decisions, whether they’re about his romantic partners, his children or his businesses.  He’s busy staying out all night drinking and doing other gross things with the Dolly sisters, and setting up new, only vaguely legal investment schemes with smarmy Jimmy Dillon.

Elizabeth Arden visits the store and Kitty is completely starstruck – even more so when Elizabeth offers her a job in New York. Rosalie decides to put on a charity event to benefit the orphanage of the newspaperman who’s out to ruin her family. Jeremy Piven remains the world’s worst ugly crier.  And Mr. Grove is suddenly diagnosed with a deadly form of cancer, because that’s literally the only way the show can make anyone have anything close to sympathy for him at this point.
