Episode 4 finds Caden (Billy Howle) depressed and consumed by despair at the crushing thought that, because of his own feckless behavior, he now has no hope of returning to the role he spent his life preparing for: his dazzling father’s (Richard Gere) heir and successor. Consumed by that bleak realization, Caden spirals wildly until things get so out of hand that he winds up making a suicide pact with his unstable companion, Orla (Niamh Algar). Helen McCrory also stars.
