It is literally pistols at dawn for Thorne and James, the latter triumphing but humiliating his brother -in-law, who goes to horrifying lengths to 'cure' Zilpha of her desires for her half-brother. James discovers that his collaborators stole the makings of his gunpowder from the East India Company but that it was rightfully Crown property, setting in motion animosity between the company and the Prince Regent, who is now anxious to support freed man George Chichester's accusation that the company deliberately sank a slave ship, drowning its human cargo. James meanwhile is desirous of proof that his father aimed to give the Nootka Indians gunpowder to allow a trade with the Chinese for their tea. He also finds out what the Countess Musgrave wants.

Nothing Special But You Can Get Nothing But Excited
8 February 2017 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

As usual I have experienced a great episode of acting, directing & writing of one of the best series airing these days that proves that he deserves that place every episode. I just want to explain my admiration of the frames of the directors, they make us really appreciate the work we watch.

Both Oona Chaplin & Jefferson Hall shined in this episode as Zilpha Geary & Thorne Geary respectively, I also love every scene that Mark Gatiss shows in it as Prince Regent , he is really great and makes me smile.

During this episode James Delaney continues his plan and attempt but he found himself in a blackmailed position from the Americans so he will have to hurry up the industry of gun powder and through this he deals with his son that we don't know there story yet, but his son doesn't know that Delaney is his father, what I love about that is that we still know that James Delaney has emotions, he has love despite his Savagery and psychopathy.

My rating for this episode is 8.5/10
