When a match is arranged for Claude, Bash goes to Catherine and urges her to show love to her daughter. She assures him how much her children mean to him, and brings up the fact that Claude once seduced him. She asks him if Claude implored him to help her against this match, to which he replies he encouraged her to accept it as a new opportunity in life.
Bash finds Catherine out in the garden freezing and carries her back to the castle. He tells her the truth about the nanny framing Claude for the deaths of her twins. When Catherine blames herself, he tries to console her, and when she mentions a chapel that had been given to his own mother, he suddenly suspects that his mother was behind the twins' deaths. He leaves, but they look at one another and smile. She later hears Bash has taken back land he was going to give to his mother and told her to go, and realizes as he did that Diane killed the twins.
While Sebastian and Catherine are arguing about Delphine she tells Sebastian they are family, adding she has been like, but Bash cuts her off. Finishing her sentace 'Like a mother to me.'" Adding When Francis died, he felt so alone and reached out to his real mother. He'd sent letters to Diane at all of her chateaus, but she never wrote back. When he realized what she'd done to Catherine's daughters, Henriette and Emone years ago, he cast Diane out of his life. Not only because of her crimes, but because he knew if she ever discovered the truth, she'd murder his mother with her bare hands. And since she's gone missing, he can't help but wonder, and demands to know if she killed his mother. Catherine confirmed she had for murdered her children. Bash asks for her body for a proper burial, but Catherine tells him she her body's in the sea. Bash begins to choke her out, but Catherine talks him out of it. The two part ways.
