If you want all sorts of details now on what lies ahead, we suggest that you check out the full The Luminaries episode 2 synopsis below — though remember that there are some spoilers within:
1865. Anna Wetherell (Eve Hewson) is now working at Lydia Wells’ (Eva Green) fortune parlour, The House Of Many Wishes, where she learns that Lydia is plotting with Francis Carver (Marton Csokas) to steal from Crosbie (Ewen Leslie).
Carver deceives Emery Staines (Himesh Patel) into thinking that Anna (Eve Hewson) has left for the goldfields. Emery goes to follow her, first agreeing to split his future goldfield winnings with Carver, registering their joint claim under the name ‘Aurora’.
Emery almost drowns upon his arrival on the Hokitika goldfields, and believing Anna to have drowned as well, he befriends a Māori man, Te Rau Tauwhare (Richard Te Are), and heads into the hills to grieve.
Anna develops a rapport with Crosbie Wells, who is oblivious of what his wife is plotting.
Back in Dunedin, Lydia is laying the groundwork for her plan. She arranges to meet Alistair Lauderback (Benedict Hardie) the following night on a ship called the Godspeed. Later, she spikes her husband’s drink – along with Anna’s – with laudanum, and begins sewing Crosbie’s fortune into the seams of her dresses.
In 1866, Anna returns to Crosbie’s cottage where she is plagued by strange visions and memories that are not her own. The jailhouse chaplain, Cowell Devlin (Matt Whelan), uncovers a fortune hidden in Crosbie’s cottage and Anna makes an astonishing discovery.
To think, we are still at the moment just scratching the surface of what some of the upcoming stories could be.
