PRIME Min­is­ter Pitt calls an election and un­cer­tainty grips the coun­try.

While Ross (Aidan Turner, pic­tured) watches Cornwall suf­fer un­der the power of Truro’s MP, Ge­orge War­leg­gan, Demelza’s in­fi­delity leaves her torn be­tween her hus­band and a lovesick Hugh – who is set to ri­val Ge­orge in the up­com­ing election.

The Eny­ses con­tem­plate having a child and Elis­a­beth seeks the same to se­cure her mar­riage.

Mean­while, Mor­wenna uses Os­borne’s af­fair with her sis­ter Rowella to keep the rev­erend’s ad­vances at bay, and Demelza seeks to rec­on­cile the ri­val lo­cal Lords of Fal­mouth and Basset.

A corn riot erupts in Truro and Zacky’s son Jago leads the charge. A mer­chant is killed in the fight­ing.
