The Final Episode of The Series Poldark
In the final episode of the series Poldark, Prudie and Tholly spy French sails on the horizon and the area is put on alert. George passes Drake’s smithy on his return from Parliament and Francis Basset convenes a meeting to devise the defences of Cornwall. Ross is put in command of a squad of volunteers while Demelza continues to be courted by Hugh in secret.
Emma admits she is attracted to Sam but cannot overcome her lack of religious faith, while George takes the fact that Drake is living in the smithy – on the edge of Trenwith land – as provocation by Ross.
He orders Tom Harry to ensure that Drake’s residency is short-lived and Tom is only too happy to oblige, leaving Ross facing threats both foreign and domestic.
