Review

Buckle up, it’s flashback time! Hunky John Beecham (Tom Bateman) gathers his ladies for tea, tells them a sad story and makes them cry. After which, of course, they love him even more, what with him being not just manly but damaged, too.

As Gurinder Chadha’s epic saga grinds on, we find out who John was defending when he was injured in the first episode and learn more about the mother of cute baby August. August’s auntie, meanwhile, slinks into John’s bedroom as the words “You cannot deny our connection, John” drop from her mouth like bad teeth.

And another lady of the house is disappointed in love when she’s seduced by a cad: “You have ruined me!” she cries.

Summary

Violet witnesses Chandrika going into John's room at night, and tells his mother what she saw. Margaret is devastated when she finds out and resolves to leave Delhi. John realises his only hope of persuading her to stay is to reveal the truth about his past and the baby's identity - even if it puts the child's safety in jeopardy.
