Storyline

In the winter of 1939, Lord Marchmain decides to return to Brideshead from Venice in view of the deteriorating international situation. It soon becomes apparent that he is in declining health and has in fact come home to die. He has taken a dislike to Bridey's new wife and suggests he may leave Brideshead Castle to Julia and Charles. Religion - specifically whether Lord Marchmain will accept the last rites - becomes an issue. Charles simply cannot understand or accept the family's religious beliefs but in his dying moments, Lord Marchmain does provide a sign indicating his wishes. The entire episode forever changes Charles and Julia's relationship. In the spring of 1944, Charles, now an army Captain, living on the grounds of Brideshead Castle, walks the corridors of a place he knows so well and remembers the life that is past him.

[Charles and Julia hug]
Julia Mottram: Here on the stairs, a minute to say goodbye.
Charles Ryder: [wistfully] So long to say so little.
Julia Mottram: You knew?
Charles Ryder: Since this morning. Since before this morning. All this year.
Julia Mottram: I didn't know till today. Oh, my dear, if you could only understand, then I could bear to part - or bear ...
