The final season of The Durrells continued on ITV in the UK tonight.

Here’s a plot recap for the fifth episode of Season 4, which first aired at 8pm on Sunday 5th May 2019:

Corfu is excited about the arrival of their beloved monarch and Theo has an unofficial role in the preparations. As the King’s route takes him past the Durrell’s villa, he suggests they ‘do their bit’.

Gerry suggests his animals, whilst Leslie, in his new role as a Scout Leader, will put on a scout display and Louisa will bake some delicious food, with Spiros’ help.

Leslie attempts to make Basil break things off with Dimitra, but Basil refuses which culminates in him receiving a surprising punch from Spiros who feels completely betrayed by the Durrells when he finds out the truth about his wife.

During Margo’s train journey back to the island she meets handsome Greek, Nikos.

With his relationship with Galini on track, Gerry quickly turns his head back to his beloved animals and receives a big donation from a local animal lover whilst at the same time finding out how hard and ethically fraught it is to run a zoo.
