Handsome Captain Dreyfuss is the American Air Force’s liaison officer with the people of the tiny Northern Irish town of Moybeg. Though by now we know what kind of “liaison” he has in mind as his adored Rose Coyne flutters like a mad moth whenever he’s close by.
Married Rose (Hattie Morahan) can’t keep her feelings in check, weeping in her living room while sad-eyed Captain Dreyfuss (Aaron Staton), who we discover has A Secret Pain, looks at her, aching with longing.
It’s the final episode and tensions are running high as the Americans throw a party at the aerodrome for the local kids. But the big dramas are focused on the adults as Rose’s husband Michael hears bad news.
Rose is preoccupied by Dreyfuss' absence and rejects him when he returns after three weeks. The children are delighted when it is revealed that a Christmas party is going to be held at the aerodrome, but the celebration stirs up tension within the community, especially when Ned Hanlon discovers his family are not invited. Michael receives bad news from his cousin and needs the support of his family more than ever, while Rose is left torn when she learns the reason for Dreyfuss' disappearance during the Christmas party. Last in the series.
