Following tonight’s premiere episode, do you want to see some of what lies ahead in regards to The Woman in White episode 2? Personally, we do think that there is a great deal to look forward to for many different reasons. For starters, this is the sort of show that is about a descent into chaos. There are going to be some twists and turns that you see over time, but the biggest that we can say in terms of what to expect is that things are going to be so much more chaotic than almost anyone (at least those who are unfamiliar with the material) should imagine.
Given that this is a story that is being told over the course of just five parts, we imagine that things are going to have to move very quickly. You also get a better sense of that just by checking out the synopsis below. (We should warn you for a moment, though, that there are some spoilers ahead.)
With Sir Percival (Dougray Scott) impatient to marry Laura (Olivia Vinall), Walter (Ben Hardy) and Marian (Jessie Buckley) are anxious to uncover the truth about the role he played in sending Anne to the asylum. However, when Mr Fairlie (Charles Dance) learns of Walter’s love for his niece, he sends him away.
Sir Percival informs Marian of his blameless association with the Catherick family, and Anne’s mother Mrs Catherick (Kerry Fox) confirms his version of events.
Laura tells Sir Percival about her feelings for Walter in the hope he will release her from their engagement, and is devastated when her plan backfires. Wedding arrangements get underway, with Mr Fairlie agreeing to a marriage settlement that raises questions about Sir Percival’s true intentions.
Count Fosco (Riccardo Scamarcio), a close friend of the baronet, arrives for the wedding and Marian is struck by his charms. Laura resigns herself to her new life, and she and Sir Percival marry.
Sir Percival and his new bride return from their honeymoon to Blackwater, the house they now share with Marian, accompanied by Count Fosco and his wife Madam Fosco (Sonya Cassidy). Marian learns that Mrs Catherick has visited the house in search of her daughter, who has been seen in the neighbourhood.
This is the episode that should help to raise further questions about the future, while setting an expectation for what the remainder of the season could look like. The wedding of Sir Percival and Laura is in many ways just the beginning for what could be a dark, shocking thriller to come.
