This article contains predictions for the Apple TV+ series The Essex Serpent season 1, episode 5.

The Essex Serpent saved all its drama for “Everything Is Blue”, the show’s best episode yet. Tensions rise at Cora’s birthday celebration with the looming love triangle coming to a head. Whilst the richer folk dance and play, the poorer residents in town prepare for further attacks. Here’s what happened in that explosive episode four of The Essex Serpent:

  • Cora dresses for her party, staring at her scar. She purposefully wears clothes to cover this shameful branding. Luke presents her with an expensive necklace, but she is unable to wear it. Martha covers for her saying it doesn’t suit that outfit.
  • The Ransome family arrives and the tensions are immediately felt. Luke and Will argue over the serpent, with the doctor clearly unsettling the vicar.
  • Naomi fears her sinful ways will upset the serpent and wishes to confess. She looks for Will everywhere, but cannot find him.
  • The guests dance and Luke notices a sweaty Stella is unwell. He recommends she pays him a visit in London. Stella persuades Will to dance with Cora and everyone sees the romantic sparks flying between the two. Luke is upset and Will embarrassed.
  • The Ransomes head home and notice a strange blue sky. Cora roams the coast alone at night in despair.
  • Drunken and alone, Martha and Luke flirt. Luke is upset by Cora’s actions and Martha is annoyed the widow gets all the attention. The couple decides to have a little fun themselves.
  • Naomi realizes she has no one to confess to and wades into the muddy waters.
  • Frankie (Cora’s son) wakes in the middle of the night, believing it to be daytime because of the unusual blue sky. He journeys to Cracknell’s house and finds the man lying on the ground. He dies next to Frankie.
  • The next morning Luke and Martha awkwardly say goodbye, regretful of what transpired the night before. Frankie explains what happened with Cracknell and Martha tells Cora she wants to return to London.
  • Naomi’s dad searches for her daughter and finds Cracknell’s dead body instead. Will and the townsfolk gather around the body. Cora arrives in red and the locals all blame her for this death. They call her a witch and Will tries his best to protect her from attack.
  • Cora storms off and Will chases after her. They argue and subsequently, Will declares his love for her. The two kiss and make love out in the open.
  • Cora packs up her belongings, preparing to leave. Matthew goes around painting goat’s blood onto all the houses, blaming Cora again for her sinful ways. The family leave by horse and cart.
