Sarah and George go public with their relationship while Regina tries to warn them about Sir Richard’s evil ways
Sarah and George brace for family and political backlash on A Place to Call Home.
George and Sarah have thrown caution to the wind and are travelling to Canberra together despite being unmarried with a child. But Parliament’s reaction to the union pales in comparison to the trouble they could face when they refuse to believe Regina’s claims that Sir Richard plans to destroy the Bligh family.
While it is well known that George (Brett Climo) is in a relationship with “the other woman” and has a child with her it is a very hushhush situation. The morals of the time mean that though George and Sarah’s (Marta Dusseldorp) situation seems scandalous no one bats an eyelid if you keep it private.
Sarah finds herself growing ever fearful of the outrage they might encounter when she gets to Canberra and even tries to back out. But George won’t hear of it — they are going to stand united as a family no matter what.
But reality soon sets in when the couple attends an embassy function. While there they bump into Prime Minister Robert Menzies (Alan Dearth) who is appalled by Sarah’s presence at the party. It immediately impacts George’s career when the speech he was due to make that night is cancelled.
That could actually be the least of their worries because Sir Richard (Mark Lee) makes a shock appearance at the event. It follows an alarming confrontation with Regina (Jenni Baird) who is extremely desperate for George and Sarah to believe her that Sir Richard is up to no good.
Regina has tried to make George understand that he is just Sir Richard’s puppet. She has revealed all the despicable things Sir Richard has done so far to the Bligh family and how the media mogul has been using her to get what he wants.
