Alice miraculously solves the problem of the Christmas show by proposing a promenading nativity, in which she and Hugo will play Mary and Joseph. Geraldine wrestles with both the cast's shortcomings and David's desire to present Herod as a man much misunderstood.
Alice goes into labour mid-performance, and gives birth at the pertinent moment. Later, she needs to check with Geraldine whether or not she has actually given birth to the Son of God, notwithstanding the fact that her baby is a little girl.
