Episode 2 of 8

Period drama. Cornwall's election looms and the Poldarks face difficult decisions, as the outcomes could change not only their lives, but the future of Cornwall itself.

The Poldarks determine to get their relationship on track and the Enyses announce they're expecting a baby. Hugh's worsening health threatens his chance to stand in the election, and the prospect of him remaining in Cornwall adds pressure to the Poldarks' fragile marriage. At the Sawle Feast, Tom Harry challenges Sam to a wrestling match. When Emma offers herself as the prize, Sam accepts.
