Episode 1 summary :
Show trials, torture and summary executions are rife in England as Charles II betrays his promise of tolerance and reverts to tyranny. At Fanshawe House, Angelica (from The Devil's Whore) is now Countess of Seacourt, striving to protect her daughter from a country once again on the brink of chaos.
But when outlaw and idealist Abe breaks into Beth's sheltered world he jolts her into consciousness and asks whether she can stand by as the liberties won with her father's Civil War blood are destroyed.
Meanwhile, in New England the colonists struggle to throw off the distant but steely control of the English Crown.
