The next morning, Caroline packed her belongings to move out with Madeleine. Eleonore didn’t allow her to take Madeleine with her, and Caroline had no choice but to leave the manor. For the time being, Caroline decided to stay with the other ladies. Marguerite had already left for the quarters and found out that Colin and five other men had been arrested for desertion. Colin had helped the soldiers to retreat and attacked General Delille since he killed the soldiers who refused to fight. Delille had approached General Duvernet, and as per Article 238, the code of justice, the soldiers would be sentenced to death. Marguerite had decided to meet the General directly, and even though visitors were not allowed, Marguerite rushed inside General Duvernet’s office and managed to meet him. Marguerite informed General that Colin was her son and requested him to save Colin. General Delille lied about the whole situation and put the entire blame on Colin. In reality, Delille had forced the soldiers to move ahead and scared them by shooting three men from their squad; Colin took the others out of there as the gas bomb had killed the rest.

General Duvernet had arrived at the quarters, and he spoke to Delille. General Duvernet questioned him about the shooting, and Devilled tagged the three men as deserters. General Duvernet told him that there was a huge difference between desertion and refusal. Besides, Colin never left the spot; he only withheld from firing. So, General Duvernet dismissed Delille for hiding the truth and pardoned the young soldiers. Colin was called to General Duvernet’s office, where he was demoted from a lieutenant to a normal soldier. General Duvernet chose to save Colin. Colin asked him the reason for changing the punishment, and General Duvernet told him that Marguerite was the one who’d stopped the execution. Despite all her efforts, Colin had decided to remove Marguerite from his life, and he wanted to forget her. Marguerite arrived at the brothel and insulted Marcel for ruining everything. Meanwhile, Yvonne got a call from the police station, and learned that one of Marcel’s men, Andre, was arrested for distributing illegal drugs on the battlefront. So, Andre had to change his testimony; Yvonne told the officer to put Marguerite and Caroline’s names. Now, things were going to get messier since Yvonne wanted to ruin their ambulance business. Yvonne arrived at the church and handed over some drugs to Juliette. She told Juliette to place these drugs in Marguerite’s house. Meanwhile, things took a different turn for the Dewitt family.

Charles wanted to kill Madeleine, so he decided to fool her and send her to the Bear Cave. It was Caroline’s favorite place to play, but she’d prohibited Madeleine from playing in the Bear Cave since the German soldiers were hiding in that spot. Charles assured her that Caroline would be waiting for her in the cave. So, Madeleine left the house secretly, and now Eleonore was trying to find her everywhere. Eleonore had approached the factory workers to know about Madeleine’s location. She believed that Caroline had stolen the child and commanded Jean to check Marguerite’s house. Back at the house, Marguerite and Caroline left together to find Madeleine.

Meanwhile, Juliette placed the drugs in Marguerite’s house, and Andre gave his testimony. Caroline arrived at the mansion, and Eleonore handed her a piece of paper with Madeleine’s drawings on it. Caroline immediately recognized that it was the Bear Cave and rushed towards it. Some German soldiers spotted Marguerite and Caroline, but they managed to find Madeleine and hide inside the cave. A soldier spotted the trio inside the cave, and luckily, he saved them. He told them to be quiet and distracted the other soldiers. This provided enough time for Marguerite and Caroline to escape the Bear Cave. Soon, Madeleine revealed that Charles told her that Caroline would meet her at the Bear Cave. She rushed back to the house and packed Madeleine’s belongings and told everything to Eleonore. Before Caroline could leave, some policemen arrived and arrested Marguerite and Caroline for transporting drugs in the army quarters.

Another girl had approached Agnes and informed her about the same abuse. She revealed that Father Vautrin had been abusing the other nuns and novices as well. So, despite all the problems, Agnes headed towards her room and called the Diocese of Nancy. The story then turned to Lucien. He waited at the location where Karl wanted to meet him. He had tied Suzanne to the truck and waited there for hours. Soon, Karl arrived, and Lucien untied Suzanne and told her to leave when his daughter arrived. Lucien didn’t tell them the new plans and lied about France’s offensive. Before he revealed anything, Lucien wanted Claudine back. So, Karl agreed and gave her back. Suddenly, Lucien stepped towards Karl and attacked him. He threatened the other soldiers with a hand grenade around Karl’s neck.

Once Claudine was in the car, Suzanne left, and Lucien sacrificed himself to save his country and his daughter. Suzanne came back to the church safely and sent Claudine with Agnes. Here, Agnes informed her that Joseph had been stabbed, and he was found in Suzanne’s room. She rushed to the operating room and decided to conduct the operation herself since Dr. Bruand didn’t have expertise in such cases. Meanwhile, Joseph was conscious throughout the operation and guided her. Joseph and Suzanne talked about Lucien, and he shared that Lucien was the one who stabbed him. Finally, Suzanne opened up and told him the truth; she revealed her identity and the secrets of her past. The seventh episode of “Women at War” ended with this, and now Marguerite and Caroline had to find a way to clear their names while Agnes had to stand up against Father Vautrin’s abuse.
