Possum October 10, 2017 Share October 10, 2017 This episode was weaker than last week's double. It was very predictable. George acted exactly as anyone would predict he would as magistrate, which was as a complete jerk. As soon as I saw the barmaid in France, I knew she would turn in Ross. I grew tired of the storyline in France very quickly. It was a little too brutal than it needed to be, we get it, it's a murdering rat hole. Finally my biggest beef, there wasn't enough Agatha getting under George's reptilian skin. Some of the better parts of the show were Demelza and Prudie bonding over kneading bread dough and Demelza claiming her rights as wife. Whether she would have been able to do this with most of the husbands of that time is probably unrealistic, but it has a place in this show. Morwenna and Drake have a sweet storyline and I like that little GC is playing cupid. I have never liked Elizabeth, but at least she had a look of horror on her face when George erroneously sentenced the young girl. Was that look due to her being fearful of what George might do to her should he suspect that Ross fathered Valentine? Was that look meant to convey her wondering what type of monster she married? I would like to think it was because she felt badly for the young girl, but with Elizabeth being a "me, me, me" type of person, I doubt that's the case. My money is on it made her more fearful of how George would react if he had any inkling that Ross fathered Valentine. Her fear probably is what made her want to leave with George because away from the big house, there would be no one to place doubts in his head. With Geoffrey Charles commenting on Valentine's looks, he had to be sacrificed. Although Elizabeth loves GC, she loves herself more. Fortunately for GC, being left behind is the best thing she could have done for him. I'm hoping Dwight is rescued next week, partly because I like him and partly because I don't want to see any more of the brutality. 3 Link to comment
