Prime Minister Pitt (Edward Bennett) calls an election and uncertainty grips the country. While Ross (Aidan Turner) watches Cornwall suffer under the power of Truro’s MP, George Warleggan (Jack Farthing), Demelza’s (Eleanor Tomlinson) infidelity leaves her torn between her husband and a lovesick Hugh (Josh Whitehouse), who is set to rival George in the upcoming election.
The Enyses contemplate having a child and Elizabeth (Heida Reed) seeks the same to secure her marriage. Meanwhile, Morwenna (Ellise Chappell) uses Osborne’s (Christian Brassington) affair with her sister Rowella (Esme Coy) to keep the reverend’s advances at bay, and Demelza seeks to reconcile rival local Lords of Falmouth (James Wilby) and Basset (John Hopkins).
A corn riot erupts in Truro, and Zacky’s (Tristan Sturrock) son Jago (Jack Riddiford) leads the charge. Sam Carne (Tom York) and Drake Carne (Harry Richardson) attempt to dissuade him but arrive too late, and a merchant is killed in the fighting. Tom Harry (Turlough Convery) tells George that the Carnes and Jago murdered the man.
