Upstairs, Downstairs I: (12) The Wages of Sin

Mar 24, 1974 on PBS at 9:00 PM


Masterpiece Theatre Sarah is pregnant again by a gentleman, she says, who rescued her from a downpour and filled her with brandy - of course, she doesn't know his name. Thomas, the chauffeur, tells Richard that he's in love with Sarah, despite her c... (more)ondition, and wants to marry her, even though he never lets on to Richard that he is in fact the father. Thomas is taken aback when Her Ladyship tells him that they must leave instantly because she has never allowed servants to marry. Meanwhile, Watkins insinuates he can cause embarrassment to the Bellamys by divulging the many scandals which occurred during his employment. Richard offers Watkins 500 pounds to help him start his own garage. In exchange, Watkins will take Sarah and never reveal to anyone anything he witnessed during his engagement with the family. Originally aired in the UK as Season 2, Episode 12
