Episode Summary

EDIT
Et in Arcadia Ego
AIRED:
In 1944, the fifth year of the Second World War, a thoughtful middle-aged British Army officer, Captain Charles Ryder, finds himself posted at short notice to Brideshead Castle. Ryder has been there before, and time slips back to when he was an undergraduate at Oxford, twenty years before. There he meets Sebastian Flyte (a young man with a teddy bear) when Sebastian, rolling drunk, vomits through Charles's window and sends him flowers to apologize. Charles becomes part of Sebastian's set, which includes the aesthete Anthony Blanche and the more traditional 'Boy' Mulcaster. He also visits Brideshead for the first time, where he meets Sebastian's sisters Julia and Cordelia.moreless
