Sanditon Episode 4 Recap:
Episode 4 follows a homesick Charlotte who seems to be getting along with the Parkers. She then sets off to visit Georgiana, who is elated after receiving a secret letter but is bored after staying indoors for so long. Charlotte then suggests that they go on a picnic. However, she later realizes that Georgina had lied to her so that she could sneak out with her lover, Otis — a revelation that leaves the protagonist annoyed.
Meanwhile, siblings Edward and Esther finally reveal their incestuous relationship, which is discovered by none other than Clara. But when Clara learns that Esther has true feelings for her brother, she advises the latter to be careful. After all, Edward cares about nothing but money.
Back to the picnic where Charlotte is the uncomfortable third-wheel to Georgina and Otis’ romantic outing. It is also revealed that Otis is a former slave and is currently working with the abolitionist group, the Sons of Africa, in order to put an end to slavery. We also learn that Sidney has been rejecting Otis’ proposals to marry Georgina.
When Charlotte hears about this, she is a bit skeptical about Sidney and how he actually is as a person. Although she tries to convince herself that slavery is a practice that has been in place for decades, she still cannot help but consider the fact that Sidney might have a darker side to his personality.
