With Vicki back in town, Lockie has to work hard to prove he's a good friend to Mel.
Winston is taken to Room 101 and tortured again, finally submitting to Big Brother. Julia meets Winston and the two exchange emotionless words. Winston appears on the telescreen confessing to crimes he did and didn't commit. The announcement of Eurasia's defeat plays on the telescreens as Winston watches. With eyes welling up, a final "I love you" is delivered to an empty chair.
O'Brian uses electroshock torture to reprogram Winston's brain. Winston is allowed to ask a few final questions, but O'Brien reminds him he has not asked any questions about Room 101. After Winston's reprogramming, O'Brien describes the reality of power and the principles of the Party's authority. Winston resists, citing Goldstein's book, but learns the Party wrote it. Still, Winston endures, and O'Brien makes an example out of Winston's belief in human nature.
O'Brien questions Winston about his memory, his crimes and his sense of wrongdoing, while also subjecting him to painful torture. O'Brien instructs Winston to use discipline to control his mind, and come to terms with the logic of doublethink and the principles of the Party.
Julia and Winston watch the old woman singing in the courtyard below until Big Brother's voice commands them from behind the picture of the old museum. They soon learn the kindly shopkeeper was a member of the Thought Police. Winston and Julia are arrested and sent to the Ministry of Love for rehabilitation. Parsons, who is convicted of thought crimes by his daughter, joins Winston in the cell. O'Brien, who Winston believed was also a thought criminal, arrives and punishes Winston for his action
Winston and Julia discuss the human spirit. Later, Winston is called to the dwellings of Inner Party member O'Brien, where he learns of Inner Party privileges, is given wine and told of thought crimes, the resistance against Oceania and their ambitions. After, he receives the new edition of the Ingsoc dictionary and is asked to leave. Back home, Winston learns that secret pages are hidden within the dictionary.
Winston asks Julia is the resistance is real. The Ministry of Truth descends into chaos after an attack. Winston works tirelessly under the party's rule to re-write historical facts. At home, Winston contemplates his actions and the doublethink logic of the Ministry of Truth.
Winston hires the shopkeeper's room for four dollars. At works, Winston steals glances at Julia. Later, as he waits in the newly rented room, he thinks of the enormous dangers their encounters could incur. When she arrives, she shows him the illicit items she has squirrelled from the Inner Party's supplies.
The young woman falls in front of Winston, who helps her stand again. In his cubicle, Winston retrieves the notes she slipped into his sleeve. At home, Winston contemplates who she is. While fixing a water pipe for his neighbour, the son accuses Winston of being a thought criminal. At Victory Square, the young woman appears behind Winston and they covertly discuss their next meeting.
At work, Winston and his colleagues are tasked with rewriting documents to align with the Party's efforts. After work, Winston visits the store where he bought the notebook. Intrigued by a small paperweight, the shopkeeper informs him of another room upstairs. Upstairs, the two men look at a picture of a museum and the shopkeeper recites, "oranges and lemons say the bells of St Clement's," which become a reoccurring motif foreshadowing Winston's demise. Outside, Winston and a young woman lock ey
At home, Winston thinks about the consequences of thought crimes. In the background, a videotaped confession plays on the home telescreen. Winston removes a brick from the wall and retrieves a book. Within the pages, Winston begins writing a letter to the future, to a future without thought crimes or thought police. That night Winston dreams of the equally dreary world in which he grew up. In the morning he wakes to the omnipresent Big Brother watching from the telescreen.
Triumphant music plays to a crowded audience as they watch a film heralding Oceania's authoritarian society. During the presentation and man appears on the screen and the audience breaks into a hysteria of shouting. Winston is eyed by a man in the front row and begins shouting as well. The leader appears on the screen, and the crowd is sated. Later, workers sit in cubicles preparing documents, and a screen showing an image of the Big Brother directs them to think in newspeak.
