Episode 5. A Blow Upon a Bruise. Charles is invited to Brideshead for Christmas and learns that Mr. Samgrass and Sebastian will be there as well. Sebastian is as morose as he was before he left, if not more so. The atmosphere as Brideshead is gloomy. All of the liquor has been locked away and there is a tension among everyone there due to Sebastian's condition. The more his mother tries to exert control over him, the more Sebastian travels in his downward spiral. Charles remains loyal however and gives Sebastian money knowing that he plans on going to a pub. When Lady Marchmain asks him if he was the source of the money he is honest with her and her harsh words convince Charles that he will never again return Brideshead. Episode 6. Julia. Charles returns to Paris to continue his art studies and is surprised with a visit from Rex Mottram. It would seem that he and Sebastian had stopped in Paris enroute to a sanatorium in Zurich but Sebastian has stolen his cash and disappeared, much as he did with Mr. Samgrass during the tour of the Middle East. Charles recounts the tale, learned many years later, of Rex and Julia's relationship. Much to Lady Marchmain's objection, Rex and Julia are engaged and Rex agrees to take instruction in the Roman Catholic faith. Rex very much wants a big society wedding but only a short time before the event, Bridey learns that that Rex was once married and is now divorced. Not realizing the impediment this causes Roman Catholics, Rex has some difficulty understanding why they can't just go ahead. Julia stands her ground however and insists they will be married one way or another
