Episode Summary

A Twitch upon the Thread
In flashback, Charles is painting a portrait of Julia at Brideshead when Bridey arrives and announces his intention of marrying a Mrs Beryl Muspratt, a middle-aged widow, whom he has met through his hobby of collecting match-box covers. He rebukes Julia for her affair with Charles and says Beryl could not bear to spend a night under the same roof with the two of them while they are "living in sin". Cordelia brings news of Sebastian, who is now living a dismal life as an odd-job man in a remote monastery in North Africa.moreless
