Poldark continued this evening with an extremely worrying instalment for George Warleggan (played by Jack Farthing).

The villain has shown a softer side of late as he mourns the loss of his wife, Elizabeth Warleggan (Heida Reed). 

Following her death in the season four finale, George has tried to keep her out of sight, and therefore, out of mind. 

However, in tonight’s instalment, he couldn’t help but let her slip back into his thoughts and he even took to talking to her.

Fan of Poldark know George’s mental health will spiral as his grief takes over. 

However, it seems in next week’s episode, the Poldark villain will take drastic measures.

While talking to uncle Cary Warleggan (Pip Torrens) in a chamber, George holds up a gun.

In a worrying turn for fans, he points it right at a character, presumably Cary, and pulls the trigger.

With his grief taking over, George needs all the help he can get; will he really kill his right-hand-man?

Viewers were devastated to see the unravelling of George this evening following the arrival of his wife’s ghost.

One shared on Twitter: “Never thought the day would come when I would feel sorry for George…#Poldark.”

Another added: “This George storyline is awfully sad.”

A third shared: “I actually feel sorry for George, what is this?”

George actor, Jack, has spoken about his character’s journey in season five and it seems viewers will see a different side to the villain.

He said: “Losing Elizabeth at the end of last series was extremely traumatic for George and we pick up this series a few months later.

“He is apparently back to normal, at his desk hard at work but crucially refusing to talk about anything – he doesn’t want to hear her name, pictures of her are being taken down from the house, he is getting on with his life.

“However, gradually you become aware that he is not anywhere near as calm as he appears, he is suffering inwardly and apocalyptically.”

Meanwhile, it seems Ross and Dwight could be set for a violent head-to-head as their feud explodes. 

Although Ross stood by his friend for years, it seems they could be in for trouble as Ross gets into his politics further.

Actor Luke recently spilled at a Q&A ahead of the new series: “There is a bit of animosity between Dwight and Ross this year which is fun because they’ve never really had any over the last four series.

“So yeah it’s a bit of a head to head this year.”

How will their clash come out to play on the BBC series?

Poldark continues Sunday on BBC One at 9pm.
