Full Episode Summary

Charles comes home from Paris. He accepts an invitation to Brideshead for Christmas and the New Year of 1925 when he hears that Sebastian (and Samgrass) will be there too. He finds Sebastian even more depressed than he was before he went away, and the rest of the family are trying to stop him from drinking by locking all alcohol away and by keeping him penniless. Charles incurs their anger by giving Sebastian money, which results in a very drunken evening at a pub and some terrible behaviour. After Charles admits he was the source of the money, Lady Marchmain's hard words give him the impression that he will never be welcome at Brideshead again.moreless
