OMG I LOVED THIS EPISODE SO SO SO SO SOOOOOO SOOOOOOOO MUCH.
I LOVE POLDARK.
I LOVE THIS SEASON SO MUCH.
I swear I loved every single second of this episode.
AND BTW how chilling it was George’s speech at the same time images of France were happening. GOOD STUFF YALL. Also when he excuses the nephew of that influent man while he condeem people for “crimes” that are far less offensive it shows how law works differently for people. Something that happens today in so many instances. Also, is a contrast of Ross ethics and his message. So, I don’t see it as GEORGE IS EVIL HE EXCUSES RAPE OMG (He seems to find a bitter pill to swallow), but more like it is something he can overlook for his own interests. BTW I also don’t think Elizabeth’s storyline in it had to do with consent or lack of it, but more as she felt trapped about Valentine’s reminder of Ross and how close that night could be disclosed. I also think it is about her growing dissatisfaction and anger and eventually she finds the disappointment over George’s sentence. Would he believe in her POV of that night? Take her side with all his heart? Or would he be jealous of it? Question? Condeem her?
AND ROSS AND DEMELZA LKGJLJKLJLKJH;ÇLHJLLKJHKLJK. I CAN’T. I don’t see their interaction in the negative light at all. They both are people of their own strong mind and stubborn strike, bound to make decisions and mistakes and they’re not always sensible, but I think both are guided by their hearts in this episode. Ross loyalty, Demelza’s love of her brothers. I also loved their discussion of Demelza’s independence and their agreement on she is independent, indeed and has a saying at stuff. It is the modern setting of the show but also nothing in the text contradict that Ross respects Demelza’s decisions or at least this she should make decisions and have a mind on her own.
Sorry, but I don’t see Demelza’s behaviour as whinny.
AND THE MUSIC. THE MUSIC. PLAY IT IN MY FUNERAL PLEASE.
I AM DEAD BECAUSE OF THIS EPISODE.
I LOVE THIS SHOW :’)
