Les Miserables episode 4 preview: Can Cosette get a new start?

Les MiserablesDo you want to know what lies ahead on Les Miserables episode 4 when it airs on ITV in a single week’s time? Well, at the moment it appears as though the show is going to keep doing what it can to move forward. We’re jumping along in time and seeing how characters are evolving following all that has transpired with them. That certainly includes Cosette, who is looking for something new out of life, and then also Javert, who is getting closer to achieving some of his personal end goals.

Below, CarterMatt does offer the official Les Miserables episode 4 synopsis with some additional news regarding what lies ahead:

1832. A teenage Cosette (Ellie Bamber, pictured) begins to question her closeted life and is desperate for a new start in Paris.

Marius Pontmercy (Josh O’Connor), now a young law student, confronts his grandfather Gillenormand (David Bradley) after learning the truth about his heroic late father and the ideals Pontmercy fought for under Napoleon. At Marius’ new lodgings, a squalid tenement in Paris, his neighbours are a poor, violent and criminal family, whose eldest daughter Eponine (Erin Kellyman) takes a shine to him.

Whilst out walking, Cosette catches Marius’ eye and feels a new life for her may be just beginning. Valjean is disturbed to see his precious Cosette growing into a young woman.

Meanwhile, Javert (David Oyelowo) has climbed the ranks of the Paris police, and, after receiving some important information, realises he is close to his goal of recapturing an escaped prisoner.

We don’t think that there’s really all that much that the series can really surprise you with when it comes to the story ahead, but we also do not think that this is really the goal here. Instead, it’s just about trying to find a way to do justice to the source material and find a way to ensure that we’ve got an appropriate end to the story. Visually, you can’t argue against almost anything that the show is bringing to the table right now — it’s stunning, and we feel as though the actors are giving it their all. We think mostly that Les Miserables is a cup-of-tea sort of show where this specific sort of drama is not going to be for everyone, especially when it is stripped of some of the elements that made the musical adaptation a hit. (Yes, we recognize fully that the book was long before that, but it’s hard to just ignore the focus of this particular generation.)
