When French ships are seen off the coast, Sir Francis appoints Ross to lead the volunteers ready to repel any invasion, to the annoyance of Warleggan. George is further angered when Sir Francis criticizes his use of his parliamentary privilege for his own benefit. He vents his rage on Drake, having him brutally assaulted and his forge destroyed. Demelza, disappointed by Ross's apparent failure to avenge her brother, spends more time with Hugh, while Ross quells a rebellion against Warleggan by agreeing to stand for parliament himself. Rowella finds herself pregnant by Whitworth, and blackmails him into paying a young local, Arthur Selway, to marry her, giving Morwenna the strength to rebel against him. Elizabeth also revolts against her cruel husband, who begins to lose his cocky self-assurance, whilst Demelza and Ross go to bed with doubts on either side.
