Episode Summary

EDIT
The Bleak Light of Day
AIRED:
Charles gets closer to Sebastian's family, with the result that he and Sebastian begin to grow apart. As they begin their second year at Oxford, Lady Marchmain tells Charles she is relying on him to be a good influence on Sebastian. His mother, worried about Sebastian's drinking, uses a tame don called Samgrass as her eyes and ears. One night, after Boy Mulcaster persuades Sebastian and Charles to go with him to London for a ball and then a night club in Soho, Sebastian crashes his car and is arrested, charged with drunk driving. Julia's boyfriend Rex Mottram persuades the court that there are mitigating circumstances, and Samgrass covers Sebastian's back at Oxford. Meanwhile, Sebastian's bear, Aloysius, seems to have been written out.moreless
