Aidan Turner dropped a huge Poldark Season 3 spoiler. Ross Poldark knows about Demelza’s secret affair with the new character in the show.
Turner revealed that it is true that Ross’ wife, Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson), will cheat on her husband, and Ross knows about it. On the latest issue of TV Times (via Express UK), Turner teased that Ross knows that there is something going on with his wife and the good-looking aristocrat, Hugh Armitage (Josh Whitehouse). The Irish actor said, “He might suspect something is going on. He can certainly sense there’s an energy there …”
However, Turner did not say how Ross will react when he finds out about the affair. Tomlinson earlier confirmed that Demelza would cheat on her husband. She admitted that she is bracing herself for fans’ backlash about her character’s infidelity.
“He [Hugh Armitage] pays Demelza some attention, which is nice. I’m not going to give anything away but I’m intrigued to see how the fans respond to it. I’m bracing myself,” Tomlinson told The Sun.
Eleanor Tomlinson Explains Why Demelza Cheats on Ross in Poldark Season 3
It can be recalled that Ross slept with his former flame, Elizabeth Warleggan, (Heida Reed) in Season 2, and Elizabeth ended up pregnant in the finale. There are also speculations that Ross could be the father of Elizabeth’s unborn child.
This time around, it will be Demelza who will turn her attention to somebody else. Tomlinson said since her fiery redhead character decided to stay with her husband despite his infidelity, she expects that Ross will work with her as a team. Demelza will feel neglected when her expectations from her husband will not happen.
Then Hugh will come along, and he will give her the attention she craves from her husband. “Ross falls slightly short of the mark and cuts Demelza out, which just exhausts her and as the series goes on she is constantly feeling left out. When a man in uniform falls for her she loves the attention,” she told Radio Times (via Huffington Post).
Tomlinson added, “It’s a slow burn that comes from being left behind by her husband. In any relationship, being ignored allows eyes and hearts to wander and there are so many new characters who tug at her heart.”
Someone Will Die in Poldark Season 3
A major death is coming up in Season 3. In the recent episode of Poldark Season 3, Ross and Tholly traveled to France in a bid to rescue Dwight Enys (Luke Norris). However, they failed in their mission. Dwight is alive but still trapped in prison.
In the upcoming episodes, it was hinted that Ross will try to rescue his friend Dwight again. Ross, along with Tholly Tregirls (Sean Gilder), Zacky Martin (Tristan Sturrock), Captain Henshawe (John Hollingworth), and his brother-in-law, Drake Carne (Harry Richardson), will embark on a dangerous rescue mission. However, not everyone will make it back alive. Poldark Season 3 airs Sundays at 9 PM on BBC One.
