          In the season premiere episode, the Prime Minister calls an election and uncertainty grips the country. Ross watches Cornwall suffer under the power of Truro’s MP, George Warleggan, while Demelza remains caught between Ross and a lovesick Hugh. The Enyses contemplate having a child and Elizabeth seeks the same to secure her marriage. Morwenna uses Osborne’s affair with her sister Rowella to keep the reverend’s advances at bay. Sam and Drake are blamed for a murder, and Ross finds himself powerless to save his brothers-in-law. Aiden Turner stars as Poldark and Eleanor Tomlinson as Demelza.

         Then on the Sunday, October 7 at 9 PM ET episode, the Poldarks determine to get their relationship on track and the Enyses announce they’re expecting a child. Hugh’s health prevents him for standing in the election, so the candidacy is offered to Ross — but will he accept?
          On the Sunday, October 14 at 9 PM episode, Ross makes his maiden speech in Parliament and finds some notoriety in London, where he also re-unites with a now adolescent Geoffrey Charles. In Cornwall, Demelza contends with a failing mine and fixing Drake’s broken heart. Dwight and Caroline welcome a baby daughter, Sarah, into the world but Dwight’s happiness is short lived as he makes a disturbing diagnosis. George hosts an extravagant party at Trenwith in the hope of buying his way back into Parliament and his new friend, the dangerous socialite Monk Adderley, makes the necessary introductions to set George on his way.
