You have to hand it to suave, brave, handsome Hugh Armitage – he knows how to treat a lady, arriving at Nampara unexpectedly with flowers for Demelza and the honeyed words: “A rare bloom for one still rarer.” Ooh, you silver-tongued charmer.
There’s clearly considerable sexual tension between the two of them, judging by the way Demelza’s face visibly softens every time Hugh strides manfully into view. Even Ross has noticed it, and he doesn’t notice much about his wife; he’s too preoccupied with business.
Elsewhere in a penultimate episode roiling with emotion and dark shadows, ill-used Morwenna stands on a clifftop and considers her hellish marriage to that peeping Tom, toe-sucker and loathsome pervert Osborne.
Meanwhile, the priggish and borderline insufferable Sam Carne is a bit discombobulated by the attention of a bosomy peasant girl, and Ross and Elizabeth are spotted in a country church…
Ross is determined to ensure that George loses in the election, and resolves to make up for some of Trenwith's neglect - he also becomes aware of Hugh's feelings for Demelza as he returns to Nampara to find them together. George is consumed with paranoia as he challenges Dwight over Valentine's legitimacy and drives Elizabeth away. Rowella attempts to seduce Whitworth, who receives advice from Dwight over his relationship with Morwenna, Lord Falmouth learns that the Warleggans will be standing against him, and Sam pines over Emma.
