  • In flashback, Lord Marchmain, now very ill, comes home to England and prepares to die at Brideshead. Charles and Julia are planning to get married and hope Brideshead will be theirs, but Julia's faith and her sense of mortal sin are troubling her. Charles begins to feel Julia slipping away from him. After her father's death, when he appeared to return to the Roman Catholic faith, Julia arrives at a personal crisis which forces her to give up her irreligious relationship with Charles. In the present day, Charles is still at Brideshead with his regiment and hears news of the Flyte family.moreless

    • According to Evelyn Waugh, the death of Lord Marchmain was based on the real-life death of his Oxford friend Hubert Duggan, a stepson of Lord Curzon. Duggan had led a life of dissipation, and despite his family's opposition Waugh had taken a Roman Catholic priest to give him the last rites.
