Storyline

Charles and Sebastian return to Oxford but feel old and out of place. Sebastian feels that his mother is constantly watching him through her friends. In particular, both young men have to put up with Mr. Samgrass who is obviously reporting on all of their activities. Sebastian is drinking far too much and neither are enjoying themselves as they did during previous terms. They also get into a bit of trouble when Boy Mulcaster suggests they go to a private nightclub for a bit of fun. Later, they are arrested for drunkenness but for Sebastian, the charge is more serious as he was behind the wheel of a car. They are bailed out by Julia's friend, Rex Mottram and Sebastian manages to avoid jail. Written by garykmcd
