The show doesn’t pick up the thread of Trixie’s alcoholism in this episode, nor do we see any of Sister Mary Cynthia or Chummy, but the story of Patsy and Delia’s relationship does return. The fact that the show is set in 1960 limits how optimistic we can be about these two women ending up together, but it is unexpected to see that they appear to have returned to each other here, and that they’re going to try to stay together.
After Delia’s accident, it seemed like the show was calling it quits on this pairing. But love persists and there’s something really lovely about how when Delia tells Patsy how she loses her train of thought sometimes, Patsy replies “it’s better than losing you”. It seems likely Delia will still have a part to play in Season 5, although her mother insists she shouldn’t return to London. (x)
