Alexander fetches his brother to Sanditon in the hopes that he can be of use, while Georgiana faces the prospect of having her inheritance taken from her. Arthur prepars the town for a royal visit, and Tom deals with a straight-talking investor and his plans for Sanditon.
Lucille continues to struggle with depression even as she helps a fiercely independent older man in Poplar. Freed some administrative duties by Sister Veronica's arrival, Sister Julienne relishes doing more work with patients, like a woman with breast cancer.
The fourteen-year-old Marie Antoinette is sent away from home to marry an equally young heir to the French throne in order to cement an alliance between the Habsburg Empire and France. It is her duty to produce an heir.
Charlotte returns to Sanditon for Georgiana's birthday party, this time with her fiancé Ralph. Alexander Colbourne still holds a flame for Charlotte, and his niece Augusta is scheming to force the couple together.
Nancy aids a woman as she dies of a painful cancer at home and learns a secret of her life, while Lucille struggles with homesickness and depression that is worsened by an outbreak of racism in London.
