Storyline

The Bellamy household packs up and goes to Scotland when Lord Bellamy is loaned a cottage for a ten day holiday. Virginia, Alice and Rose are in Paris but everyone else, including a reluctant Georgina, goes along. Their reception is anything but warm when Hudson, Edward, Daisy, Ruby and Mrs. Bridges arrive to find that no preparations have been made for them. The ghillie, Roderick McKay and his wife aren't very friendly either. McKay suggests they return to London without delay. When that doesn't work he seems to go out of his way to make their stay unpleasant. As Hudson eventually learns, the ghillie has a secret. Georgina meanwhile dislikes the place from the moment they arrive and is bored. When James reveals his burning love for her, she tells him there can be no future for them and he returns to London.

James' 'penultimate knock'...
23 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

May, 1928, The Bellamys go up to Scotland for a holiday.

This episode I believe was a 'filler', yet ironically for me is one of my favourites from this final season - and quite important too (as it turns out) to the story/plot concerning James' tragic end.

I never thought much about Scotland until I saw this episode, but every time I watch it, it makes me want to rush off up there and stay in some large old isolated house where the winds howl romantically through the night, and one is rather 'cut off' from the outside world - lovely...

This episode is important to the plot, as it's where James takes his 'penultimate knock', before taking his own life in 1929 - his rejection yet again of the love he has for Georgina... Whilst James was never the most likable character and had few redeeming qualities, one has to say that Georgina was a nasty piece of work underneath for those of us who could see through it - that apparent gentleness and child-like innocence did not fool me! She ruined far many more lives than she ever saved during the War with her selfishness, misleading - not to mention her scatty-headedness....

On a lighter note; there is a comic side to this episode in the fear-stricken Ruby, who behaves like a small child running for her 'mother Bridges' in the night after she thinks she's heard the 'dying laird' - coming back from the grave to get her!
