In the penultimate episode of this third season Ross is adamant George will lose in the election and determines to get a headstone made for Agatha’s grave, something Trenwith has neglected.
George, meanwhile, questions Dwight over Valentine’s legitimacy and – paranoid and jealous – shuts himself to Elizabeth, as Rowella begins to seduce Osborne Whitworth and Demelza receives tokens of Hugh’s affection.
Sam continues to pine after Emma, as Dwight instructs Osborne to forego intercourse with Morwenna and Cary informs Lord Falmouth that the Warleggans will be opposing Falmouth in the election.
Ross returns from his mine to discover Hugh Armitage at Nampara with Demelza – and this time Hugh’s attention does not go unnoticed…
Pictured are Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) and Hugh Armitage (Josh Whitehouse)
