What kind of a jackass says this - "wait for this thing to play out"?!
You tell your wife you need time to think about what happened - leave Elizabeth in the lurch (I don't have must sympathy for her after Demelza's child died to save yours!).
Demelza's choices are sometimes impulsive to the point of being idiotic. Demelza alone is responsible for the death of her daughter Julia…such a strange plot hole from season 1. It's not as if 18th century people didn't understand the concepts of contagion and quarantine, and that babies and young children who contracted diphtheria had a nearly 100% mortality rate.
During this season, she goes fishing in rough seas, goes into labor, and is struggling to make shore when Ross rescues her. I found myself thinking that this woman seems hell-bent on not only killing herself, but all Poldark progeny as well.
Ross is reckless all the time...

Even if they are, how is this relevant to the discussion of Ross' infidelity and Demelza's outrage over it?
Elizabeth withheld her affections from Francis whilst yearning for Ross. That is emotional cheating.
During the diphtheria outbreak, she went to Trenwith with less than completely noble and selfless intentions in an attempt make 'amends' for the terrible mess that she created in being involved with the Verity/Captain Blamey affair. Francis blamed Ross for helping Verity; Ross had nothing to do with it. In retribution against Ross, Francis told George of all Ross's business partners and investors in the smelting company. George called in loans and destroyed the copper company and bankrupted Ross and all of the investors, some of whom would face debtor's prison. I'm sure that I'm forgetting some of the gory details.
My mother has an old saying that she uses on occasion. Something to the effect of "God save me from well-meaning people." I think of that saying when I think of Demelza.
During this season, she goes fishing in rough seas, goes into labor, and is struggling to make shore when Ross rescues her.
In that, then, she and Ross are equally matched.
I didn't notice Ross offering to go.
It's the woman who succeeds and errs on effort, not the one who attempts to capture and seduce any man in the closest vicinity.
a topic worthy of removing my attention from Hillary and the Duck
You know what really stumps me? Donald Trump has gazillions of dollars, but he's too tight to either find a decent hairdresser or get that bloody awful stringy excuse for a head of hair shaved off. He can't help what he looks like, but he's bloody fugly with that perched on his noggin!
but, to my mind (that happily accepts compulsory voting as we have here), if you don't vote you forfeit the right to complain about the outcome.
if you don't vote you forfeit the right to complain about the outcome 😉. Thankfully, our election campaigns run for about 6 weeks or so before the big day
