The war AT home
Following the recent bad harvest, the starving villagers are resorting to stealing corn from the rich.
Anyone caught thieving is either being killed or sent to face George, who’s now lording it over everyone as a magistrate, and he’s having a field day handing out harsh sentences to the hungry residents. This week, Ross comes up with a cunning plan to help ease the food shortage. But when George (boo, hiss!) discovers what’s going on, he comes up with his own scheme to cause more pain.
‘The moments between George and Ross this series are interesting to play out for myself and Jack because we’ve already been through those scenes before. When they get face to face, it’s only a matter of time before they throw candles at each other,’ says Aidan.
‘There are only so many times you can do that, so we are trying new approaches. They both have too much to lose now – as they are getting older, they can’t really afford to do each other serious harm.’
The bitter rivals are set for more confrontation
