Poldark Series 3 Episode 8 Review

For the first time ever I can truly say that I felt a tiny bit sorry for George Warleggan. The question mark over the parentage of his child must be agonising. Ross and Elizabeth’s actions were completely wrong and selfish. However, my sympathy for him quickly died as soon as he became the member of Parliament for Truro. He quickly reverted back to the nasty, spiteful and cruel man that we have come to know.

Speaking of cruel, it’s become impossible to see Reverend Whitoworth as anything else. I mean what kind of person prays for their wife’s death whilst she’s giving birth to your baby?? And he’s supposed to a be a man of the cloth!! There is no redemption for this character and I am hoping to see him get his comeuppance the episodes to come. And I have a sneaking suspicion that Morwenna’s sister Rowella will be the one to deliver it. Although, I am curious to see what form it will take because her actions are completely confusing to me.

Another character who irritated me this week was Ross Poldark. The man who can never make up his mind on who he truly loves. But he better decide quickly because Demelza is starting to look elsewhere for the attention and respect that she deserves. Hugh Armitage continued his romantic advances this week with all the subtlety of a fire truck. But unlike last week, it seems Demelza is more receptive to his charms. So will she or won’t she? That is the question…

And lastly, Sam Carne is smitten with Emma (Ciara Charteris). So much so, in fact, that he decides to propose to her! In all honesty, I don’t see how a relationship between the two of them could work and it’s clear that Emma agrees with me as she declined his generous yet premature offer. I can’t help but think that the proposal was only the beginning of their love story and they are far from done with each other…

So what did you think of this week’s episode? Leave a comment below or a like if you liked this review! 🙂
