The Gilded Age Season 1 Episode 2 Recap
The second episode of The Gilded Age, named ‘Money Isn’t Everything’, is half the length of the series premiere, but it shows a lot of room for development for its main characters and viewers see how the main and supporting cast are either engaging or ignoring the nouveau riche and old money war. The episode begins with the viewers being turned towards Agnes and Ada’s staff. A gambling enforcer has paid Mrs. Bower, the cook an unpleasant visit. They tell her that they will start breaking legs if does not the pay up the 50 dollars she owes. Meanwhile, Bertha has turned her eye towards influencing an upcoming social event. The charity bazaar, which is being held to benefit women and children in need is short on event rental space.
Later Bertha offers her own brand new ballroom. She knew that the ladies were not eager in her getting involved, but were eager to take her cash. Alderman Morris’ wife is on the executive board for the bazaar, so George sees the charity as a way to get a meeting off the record with him. They then invite the Morris’ over for some to eat as a ruse to have sneaky business discussions. Meanwhile, Oscar is scheming to invite Gladys Russell to lunch, upstairs at the aunts’ house. Agnes thinks he is attempting to pollute the building with the riff raff and is not happy about it. However, he is not the only one trying to do match making. Ada believes that it would be a good thing if Marian and her lawyer friend become more than friends.
