This evening’s edition of Poldark saw a lot of drama take place.
To begin with, the village was left shaken after an enormous mine flood saw many members of the community worried for their loved ones.
But although the tense scene left viewers fearing for Ross Poldark’s (played by Aidan Turner) life, he made it out alive.
However this event was merely the beginning of the episode’s horror, as Dr Dwight Enys (Luke Norris) broke some news to his wife.
It was revealed that Enys’ suspicions were correct, and that his daughter Sarah was unwell.
Although Caroline (Gabriella Wilde) didn’t initially believe the doctor, she became uneasy when she accepted the truth.
As the pair held their child throughout the night, Ross visited upon hearing the news.
Dwight explained that his daughter had mere hours left to live as he and Caroline remained beside her until morning.
At first light Sarah died, leaving Dwight to break down in the hallway over the loss of his infant child.
Fans were simply heartbroken by the swift news, causing them to speak out on Twitter.
