Poldark Season 2 Episode 5 (BBC-1 2 Oct 2016)

Published

on


As anyone who has seen the 1970’s series or read the books will know we are heading into a pivotal part of the season and several story lines that will have major repercussions for almost everyone – not least Ross, Demelza, Elizabeth, Francis and George.

Episode five sees Demelza still desperate to persuade Ross to see sense about working with the smugglers, especially as there has been several arrests and rumours that someone is informing on the activities of the gang. The money that Ross is getting for turning a blind eye is too good to pass up though.

George meanwhile is still working on a way to best Ross once and for all and once he knows about Ross’ promissory note (and the huge amount of interest he owes on it) thinks it may offer him a chance to do just that. For Dwight, having said goodbye last week to Caroline, is torn when she returns especially as it is rumoured that her long put off engagement announcement to Unwin Trevaunance may finally be announced at a high profile dinner dance.

Every week Ross seems to get more selfish and once again he is drawn towards Elizabeth at the dinner.

Francis meanwhile is convinced Wheal Grace, he and Ross are now partners in the mine of course, has struck copper and sets out alone to investigate.

Also if you like the idea of Ross having a bath in front of an open fire then this might be the episode of the season for you.
