So, when her husband Sir Hesketh de Langley comes home, she must get him to make love to her, even though he is intending to file for divorce the next day so he can remarry and have his son. She does soften Hesketh's heart, and he takes her into the bedroom. Act II begins with Helen learning that the ruse has worked she is pregnant!
