Episode 9: While Celia languishes in her cabin with seasickness, Charles and Julia are drawn gradually closer together. Back in London, at the first exhibition of Charles' South American landscapes, Celia reveals how much she knows about what happened on the ship. Anthony Blanche takes Charles off to a seedy bar and abuses him over the quality of his new work. Charles escapes to meet Julia on the train for Brideshead where Rex is giving a party.
Episode 10: Lovers for two years now, Charles and Julia are reminiscing when Bridey arrives to announce his engagement. When Julia encourages Bridey to invite his fiancee to Brideshead, she is stung by his reply. Bridey's insult precipitates an outburst of guilt and remorse from Julia. Cordelia returns from Spain, where she has been working among the wounded, with heartbreaking news of Sebastian.
Episode 11: It is 1939 and war is imminent. After years of exile, Lord Marchmain returns to Brideshead gravely ill. Appalled at his eldest son's marriage, he announces his intention to leave Brideshead to Julia and Charles. As his father's illness worsens, Bridey makes anxious plans to reconcile Lord Marchmain to the church. When the end comes, though, Bridey is away and Julia must offer her father--and herself--a chance for redemption.
