Storyline

Strange orders James' death but James himself sets about re-establishing his father's trading company, approaching smuggler Atticus and his gang and escaping an attempt on his life, allegedly ordered by Helga, which she denies. Recalling the last moments of the sinking slave ship he seeks out the American Dr Dumbarton to arrange a meeting with the American president but is refused. He visits Mr Thoyt, who warns him about the East India's influence, to hear the public reading of his father Horace's will, paying off all his father's debts. A shock is in store in the arrival of actress Lorna Bow, who claims to have married Horace and there is another shock when he foils another would-be killer. Written by don @ minifie-1

Still Excellent But I Hope for More
15 January 2017 | by ahmad_nadalSee all my reviews

The episode was great as the first one and I really loved how it ended but I wished for more this time. I am not saying I didn't enjoy , I did enjoy it, I am saying that it didn't add much to the first one. You will enjoy a small twist that I hope to be used well and a hell of great dialogue and awesome acting & costumes.

Tom Hard still amazing and he was a little bit bloody, sadistic & more psychopathic and we cannot forget Kristoffer Nyholm the main mind of this whole story and one of the new coming strong shows.

You will have a good time with the episode but don't hope for much.

My rating is 8.5/10
