While horseback riding, Jane tries to figure out who has hooked up with whom (six degrees of Kevin Bacon—er, Austenland?). But Mr. Nobley keeps interfering with her snooping by riding around like Dudley Do-Right.
Reluctantly, Jane chats with Nobley. Their conversation actually goes well, however, and she reveals to him that she used to be interested in painting.
Captain East interrupts their conversation, and they return to the stables.
That night, Jane finds a large package in her room. It's a paint kit. She hopes Mr. Nobley sent it to her, but she's afraid it might have been Captain East, who overheard their conversation.
