Poldark season 4 episode 3 is the latest episode of the series airing in one week’s time, and based on all indications that we’re getting at present, this is poised to be an enormous hour of television. (Warning: Spoilers ahead for viewers who have not seen the first two episodes!)
Over the course of this upcoming episode, you’re going to see more of Ross establishing himself as a political mover-and-shaker in London, and with that, you’re also going to see more of the new lives of some characters who are hovering around him in this place — including Geoffrey Charles, who we really haven’t seen in quite some time. Meanwhile, there are some other storylines coming that feature many other important characters front and center, including the arrival of Dwight and Caroline’s daughter into the world. This is going to be a powerful episode at times, but also a heartbreaking one at others. It will also feature the arrival of a new adversary-of-sorts for Ross in Monk Adderley, a man who probably has more in common with him than he does George Warleggan. That’s, in part, what makes this particular dynamic interesting.
Being, the Poldark season 4 episode 3 synopsis offers up a little bit more information as to what’s coming up:
Ross makes his maiden speech in parliament and finds himself a little notoriety in London, where he also re-unites with a now adolescent Geoffrey Charles (Louis Davidson) at the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.
In Cornwall, Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) contends with a failing mine and fixing Drake’s (Harry Richardson) broken heart. Dwight (Luke Norris) and Caroline (Gabriella Wilde) welcome a baby daughter, Sarah, into the world – but Dwight’s happiness is short-lived as he makes a disturbing diagnosis.
Ossie (Christian Brassington) meanwhile tends to a dying parishioner, Nathaniel Pearce (Mike Burnside), who confesses to losing his clients’ money on bad investments, money secured in Pascoe’s bank. Ossie takes the information to the Warleggans in the hope of selling the information to help pay for his Rowella (Esme Coy) habit.
George (Jack Farthing) hosts an extravagant party at Trenwith in the hope of buying his way back into Parliament, via purchasing a borough. His new friend, the dangerous socialite Monk Adderley (Max Bennett), makes the necessary introductions to set George on his way.
It’s really hard in order to properly determine which story we’re the most excited about here, largely because this is an episode that seems to be absolutely stuffed to the brim. Clearly, the one we’re the least excited for is Ossie’s, mostly because he’s a horrible character — granted, we’re supposed to hate him, but still. He’s the worst.
The promo after tonight’s episode suggested that a part of the problem for Demelza is going to be simply this: Figuring out her relationship with Ross in the aftermath of losing Hugh. They’re away from each other and this separation will make matters difficult.
