We’re watching you, Ross! You and the Widow Elizabeth. #TeamDemelza

Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan of the Satellite Sisters Talk TV. Our commentary on the PBS drama Poldark. This week, Season 2, Episode 5. This week at SSHQ, Julie and Lian wear our Team Demelza t-shirts while recording this podcast. But first… Who is putting silk stocking on their Christmas list? Does that count for one or two nights of Hannukah? Despite treating Demelza badly all episode, including the Saddest Christmas Dinner Ever, Ross rebounds big with a silky gift Christmas night. Okay, Ross, you get another shot at proving your love for Demelza but we’re keeping our eye on you and the Widow Elizabeth. We loved Verity throwing shade at Elizabeth as she goes prancing off on her horse. us, too, Verity. Us, too. In this episode: Demelza fights for her family, her man, mucks out a barn, stands on the right side of smuggling, marches into a creditors office like a boss and makes Christmas dinner. As Mrs Drunk says, Do you need a list of all the things she does to keep us safe and warm and feuded? This episode set up the post Francis life for Elizabeth—and it’s apparently one of heavy sighs and sexy mourning dresses with a little bit of sad blanket weaving mixed in.  The bright spot? Caroline and Dr. Ennis!
