Episode was very well paced. Even two years pass by in a matter of seconds at one point.
Valjean goes to recuse a man charged for the crimes that he himself had committed. He reveals his true identity to the court and to Javert. Valjean goes to prison but not before he rushes off to see the dying Fantine.
Two years later, Valjean comes across little Cosette, Fantine's daughter. Valjean generously purchases Cosette from Monsieur and Madame Thénardier. However Monsieur Thénardier feels Valjean's fury when he returns to demand more money.
However Valjean is on the run and Javert is still on the scent. Not before time, Javert deals with the awful Thénardier's.
Not only well paced but Dominic West really sells Valjean. He could be honourable, a brute and yet also pathetic as well. His sense of honour causes more problems than it solves.
