  • Lydia returns to her parents' home with her new husband in tow and lets slip to Elizabeth exctly how the marriage came about and who made it possible.

    When a glowing, newly-married Lydia arrives back with Wickham, Mrs. Bennet and Kitty are beside themselves with delight, but the same can not be said for any other member of the family, all of whom see Wickham for what he really is.

    Being smug, Lydia talks about her marriage and lets it slip to Elizabeth that it was Mr. Darcy who arranged everything and paid all of Wickham's considerable debts, even though she had been told to say nothing. Elizabeth is distraught because she can't tell even her beloved father of Darcy's great generosity but she soon has other things on her mind when Charles Bingley returns to the area and very smartly proposes to Jane, who naturally accepts. When Darcy asks Mr. Bennet for Elizabeth's hand and this proposal is also accepted, Mrs. Bennet is beside herself with joy and the two sisters and their respective bridegrooms marry in a local church, much to the disgust of Lady Catherine who is furious that Darcy will not be marrying Anne.

    Everything ends on a predictably happy note when the two couples leave to spend the rest of their lives together.

    Like I said, they don't make a mini-series better than this. Watch it and you will see for yourself. First rate from start to finish.
  • When Lyida comes home married and reveals what Darcy did, Elizabeth demands the truth, and the intense silence between Darcy and Elizabth is awesome.

    Of course, the mini-series finale would have to do well, and of course it was great. I love Colin Firth so it was no wonder the i'd love this episode, where he proposes and gets married. I love the ending, though perhaps would've wanted the last few chapters where they really get to talk about their love, but i understand that would've been very hard to fit in with the ending picture so perfect. Jane Austen has writtn the perfect book, and Andrew Davies has made the perfect mini-series from it. I re watch it a lot more than once a year but never ever get sick of it.
